Haven't properly listened to many new releases the year but here's a poorly formatted account of the few I have:

Really liked Frank Turner's 'Positive Songs for Negative People' - I'd place it above 'Tape Deck Heart' but not 'England Keep My Bones' 'Love Ire and Song'.

I liked Everything Everything's 'Get to Heaven' and Foals' 'What Went Down'.

Communion by Years and Years was alright, although the vocal style I'm still a little undecided on.

Sonic Highways had two or three good tracks but was otherwise a bit of a letdown, especially after'Wasting Light' which I personally view as the best Foo's album in years.

Blur's 'The Magic Whip' really disappointed me, I am a massive Blur fan but I didn't enjoy they're latest effort.

Honourable mention to Kendrick Lamar's 'i', a lot of his work I appreciate but am not too into but this track is just great.
I used to be part of the community, now I just watch it...

How do people have time to so much music they think is meh

Whatever, I came here to post a bunch of stuff that's already been mentioned. FFS is great and I would have thought of Faith No More if I realised the album was released this year. Haven't really got into the new Coheed and Cambria yet - it doesn't strike me as good as their earlier stuff (but Peace to Mountain is ace so there's hope the rest will grow on me.)

Recently I've been getting very into Everything Everything. I heard a few tracks from Arc a while back and I thought the band could be interesting, but for some reason I'm only just getting around to proper listening and Get To Heaven is definitely doing it for me. That reminds me I should probably listen to Bjork's new thing.

I thought Currents by Tame Impala was pretty neat too.
