And the #1 disappointing album for me this year was
Trivium- IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNN WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAVVEEEEEEESSS
With Trivium being my #1 favorite band I was a hardcore fanboy when this album was announced. Then the single "In Waves" was released... my expectations significantly lowered. Then "Built To Fall" was released and my expectations for a good album were gone. There are a couple mediocre songs on here but nothing to redeem this and make it album of the year as i had originally planned it to be.
