Since we're doing the 2012 top ten thing, might as well post mine too.

2. The Gathering - Disclosure
3. Gazpacho - March of Ghosts
4. Ne Obliviscaris - Portal of I
5. Motorpsycho - The Death Defying Unicorn

EDIT: After listening to a few more of my backlog, I think I'm ready to at least give out a preliminary Top 10. I'll write a series of articles outlining a Top 25 (maybe more) for The Gorgon, but I am reasonably confident that this will be my top ten albums for the year (but don't hold me to that, I may change my mind a bit by the time of the writeup).
1. Big Big Train - English Electric (Part One)
2. Astra - The Black Chord
3. ńnglagŚrd - Viljans ÷ga
4. Motorpsycho - The Death Defying Unicorn
5. Sigh - In Somniphobia
6. Ancestors - In Dreams And Time
7. iamthemorning - iamthemorning
8. Field Music - Measure
9. Ihsahn - Eremita
10. Dr. John - Locked Down
I don't count EPs in a top albums list, but I will give special mention to Agalloch's Faustian Echoes, which would likely be #4 on this list otherwise.

Official forum economist. Explodes when thrown.
I should make a list, but I've still got albums to listen to.
