    Since 2011 is basically over.

    What albums are you looking for?

    I've listened to two albums from 2012 already, Matt Elliott's The Broken Man and Andrew Bird's Norman OST. The former is excellent.

    Yeah.

    I listened to Guided By Voices Let's Go Eat At The Factory. Rather disappointing if you ask me.

    I'm very much looking forward to Cloud Nothing's Attack on Memory, Rush's Clockwork Angel's, and Kanye West's Good Music.

    I've also listened to that GBV now, yeah pretty disappointing.

    That Cloud Nothings album leaked already, btw.

    Janelle Monae has promised not one, but two albums for 2012, so I am greatly looking forward to those. Aside from that, Animal Collective, Bruce Springsteen and Paul Weller are all releasing albums at some point in the next twelve months, and The Strokes are supposed to have been in the studio for ages, so hopefully they'll be releasing something as well.

    The original members of Black Sabbath are getting back together, and are going to be releasing a new album later this year. Something I'm looking forward to, along with Meat Loaf and The Offspring.

    in terms of albums that should have been released in 2011 i'm looking forward to Saltillo - Monocyte and the new Gospel

    not looking forward to the new circle takes the square.

    Storm Corrosion's debut (Steven Wilson's and Mikael Akerfeldt's collaboration) is what I'm the most hyped up about. Also new Al-Namrood; most of the metal releases in TEA_DEMON's list look promising as well, and I guess Kayo Dot - Gamma Knife can be counted as a 2012 album now

    Hopefully the black box will be filled.
    Based on Tea Demon's list, there's some good grunge to look forward to, along with Queens of the Stone Age and Sleigh Bells should be good too!

    lots of goodies here

    that'd definitely be a highlight for me, last album they did was in 05

    they've been calling their albums I, II, III so far, wonder if there's gonna be a IV out or if they're sick of it already. at least they managed to do the whole roman numeral thing without confusing everybody like crystal castles did, i know II isn't the actual name and all but it's what people use to distinguish both, brilliant idea ethan, are we gonna have to call the next release crystal castles III when it's actually called crystal castles again? you fuck.

    a new between the buried and me album would be nice if they stopped having 10 different songs in 1, or at least that's how it feels, new riff every 30 seconds

    converge also hinted they're going to start their work on a 2012 release soon, i really hope this one's good because so far i don't know what it's like to be disappointed in converge

    edit: haha never mind billy talent's new album will be billy talent X, they're skipping from 3 to 10 hahaha

    I'm looking forward to Pagan Altar and Tribulation's new releases, Pagan Altar are too damn old to be too damn good damn it! I do not have my hopes high for the new Black Sabbath album, according to Geezer Butler it sounds like vintage Sabbath however. I don't expect it to be better than The Devil You Know, which I thought was average at best anyhow.
