The Best Albums, Lately

A running list of the best and most interesting recent releases & reissues. They're in no particular order, but I'm seperating them into 2 categories: Confirmed- Albums that I can say firsthand are good and interesting, and Unconfirmed- Those that seem potentially good, but that I don't have yet, or haven't had time to hear. This list will continue to be a work in progress until it seems like the time has come to start another one. Your input is highly encouraged.
