  20. The Pineapple Thief, All the Wars

Honorable mentions to The Dear Hunter, The Colour Spectrum (Complete Collection); Tom Waits, Bad as Me and Bass Communion, Cenotaph which all came out in 2011 but I got in 2012. Miles Davis Quintet, 1965-68 box set was another purchase this year, plus the magisterial Bitches Brew Complete Sessions. And I did get the new albums by The Mars Volta, Rush, Marillion, Peter Hammill and some other old favourites, but they didn’t really work for me as much as the ones above, or their own past glories.

    Pleasantly surprised to see Godspeed, Sigur Ros, and the new Scott Walker on your list! I’d recommend checking out Orcas’s self-titled, Laura Halo – “Quarantine”, Tiny Leaves – “What We Dream of…”, and Actress – “RIP”. They’re all from this year. Great to hear we share similar taste in music!
