2. Interior City - THE GABRIEL CONSTRUCT
3. Harvest Moon - VOTUM
4. The RAven That Refused to Sing (and other Stories) - STEVEN WILSON
5. Not A Good Sign - NOT A GOOD SIGN
6. In hoc signo - INGRANAGGI DELLA VALLE
7. La crudeltà di Aprile - UNREAL CITY
8. In Extremis - DAYS BETWEEN STATIONS
9. The Trip - DJAM KARET
10. How Much Are You Willing To Forget? - FLICKER

I am very sorry to have to leave out excellent releases from KOSMOS, VIENNA CIRCLE, SCARLET STORIES, ARABS IN ASPIC, LA COSCIENZA DI ZENO, OCTOBER EQUUS, SUBMARINE SILENCE, KARDA ESTRA, HENRY FOOL, THIEVES' KITCHEN, BROTHER APE, RHUN, LOST WORLD, JOHANNES LULEY and RIVERSIDE.

From what I've heard so far, this is where they probably rate:

1. Steven Wilson - The Raven...
2. Riverside - SONGS
3. Palms - Palms
4. Amplifier - Echo Street
5. Karnivool - Asymmetry (may rise)
6. The Tangent - Le Sacre Du Travail (need more listens)
7. Henry Fool - Men Singing

Still need to listen to these...

Haken - The Mountain
In Hoc Signo - Ingranaggi Della Valle

...and more, I'm sure.

Not a good a year so far as last. It seems to be the year when record companies have gone into overdrive with remastering/ repackaging old releases.

best albums with Raven in the title:
Oliver Wakeman and Gordon Giltrap - Ravens and Lullabies
Steven Wilson - The Raven That Refused To Sing

A couple of nice ambient releases
Colin Edwin and Jon Durrant - Burnt Belief 
Mogwai - Les Revenants 

Excellent new neo prog release
Lifesigns - Lifesigns 

none of them blow my socks off though

when's the next Anathema album due?!

I've used far too much of my dough on music this year, which probably explains why I'm so broke at the moment. Anyway, I bought music with it, which is always better than me using it on parties and boozeSmile
I've acquired a fair few releases from 13, but most of em aren't featured on PA.

Anyway these are:
Deafheaven - Sunbather
Steven Wilson - The Bird
Djam Karet - The Trip
Jaga Jazzist - Live with the Britten Sinfonia
Henry Fool - Men Singing

All of which are pretty goodThumbs Up
Looking very much forward to getting my hands on the new Guapo, Vespero, Ukandanz, Rhün, Sigur Ros, Setna, Mogwai and some others that I forget right now(probably for the best too!) 

Not on PA:

Jon Hopkins - Immunity
Boards Of Canada - Tomorrow's Harvest
The Knife - Shaking The Habitual
Primal Scream - More Light
Autechre - Exai
Unknown Mortal Orchestra - ll

It's out. Release date was originally August 1st, but they delayed it (has to do with leaking or something, I don't really remember). But when the leak happened (at August 17th), Ulver made the digital version of the album available for purchase on their bandcamp. Don't know about vinyl or CD version though.

It's been getting some pretty great reviews, with some people even calling it the best since Perdition City or even their best ever.
