Donbot, you've inspired me to name 20 instead of 10.
This mightn't be definitive as I haven't yet made good on mental notes to check out Factory Floor, Deerhunter, Ariel Pink and These New Puritans. Haven't even heard Come Around Sundown yet, how weird is that? Anyway, away we go...
01. Beach House - Teen Dream
I half-jokingly called this my album of 2010 way back in January and not only have I not heard anything that tops it, I'm still obsessed with it almost a full year later. I'd even go so far as to say that it's become an all-time favourite.
02. Warpaint - The Fool
03. Field Music - Field Music (Measure)
04. Laura Marling - I Speak Because I Can
05. MGMT - Congratulations
06. Dum Dum Girls - I Will Be
07. Arcade Fire - The Suburbs
08. Best Coast - Crazy For You
09. The Walkmen - Lisbon
10. Tame Impala - Innerspeaker
11. The Dead Weather - Sea Of Cowards
12. Sleigh Bells - Treats
13. The Black Keys - Brothers
14. Wavves - King Of The Beach
15. Spoon - Transference
16. Avi Buffalo - Self titled
17. School Of Seven Bells - Disconnect From Desire
18. Yeasayer - Odd Blood
19. Vampire Weekend - Contra
20. Crystal Castles - Crystal Castles II
^Never really hit it off with Kings of Leon. I've heard bits and pieces of their latest.. seems the standard fare, but no idea how it rates in the context of their back catalogue
Cool list though, I'll have to check out some of those I haven't heard. Especially Warpaint, whom I've heard many a good things about but haven't delved into yet (Y)
It's also awesome that Tame Impala have gotten some international recognition. It always warms the cockles of my heart when that happens with a band from my little corner of the world
They're still so young too.. it'll be interesting to see how their music evolves over the years. Their album was certainly one of the most unique and standout sounds of this year.
still compiling, thus unfinished and in no order:
Fire On Dawson - Prognative
Nevermore - The Obsidian Conspiracy
Dark Tranquillity - We Are The Void
7 Days Awake - Interference
Les Discrets - Septembre et ses dernières Pensées
Vanden Plas - The Seraphic Clockwork
I don't know why, but since I started work I haven't been able to fully appreciate the albums I listen to. My list will probably be based on what I've been listening to most this year. In no particular order:
Beach House - Teen Dream
How To Dress Well - Love Remains
Vampire Weekend - Contra
MGMT - Congratulations
Angus & Julia Stone - Down The Way
Arcade Fire - The Suburbs
Mark Ronson & The Business Intl - Record Collection
Two Door Cinema Club - Tourist History
School of Seven Bells - Disconnect From Desire
Interpol - Interpol
Crystal Castles - Crystal Castles II
Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti - Before Today
Hot Chip - One Life Stand
Les Savy Fav - Root For Ruin
New Pornographers - Together
New Young Pony Club - The Optimist
The Holidays - Post Paradise
Foals - Total Life Forever

Give Warpaint five listens and you'll be hooked, like me.
I think the backlash against KOL has gone too far but I'd be lying if I said my interest in them hadn't waned somewhat over the past year or so. Neither "Pyro" nor "Radioactive" hit the spot for me, so I've been a little hesitant in checking out CAS. I'd highly recommend the first three albums though. The fourth suffers from having too much samey, mid-paced stuff towards the end, but "Closer" and "Crawl" are well worth a listen too.
No Washington love, red_ed?
Thanks, maybe I'll give them more of a chance after I give those a spin (Y)
Good album but it didn't have much repeat value for me Loved the Sunday Best video clip though

Ah I see. I listened to it a ridiculous number of times
I love that video too. The Hardest Part has a really good one as well
Meanwhile, what the fuck is going on in this one?
I believe there's a video for every song on "Teen Dream" and although that's the strangest one, it has to be said that they're all pretty random.
1.Wolf Parade - Expo 86
2.Arcade Fire - The Suburbs
3. LCD Soundsystem - This Is Happening
4. Massive Attack - Helligoland
5.Black Keys- Brothers
6.Soft Pack - The Soft Pack
7.Tame Impala - Innerspeaker
8.Caribou - Swim
9. Deerhunter - Hacylon Digest
10. Holy Fuck - Latin
^ The music god hath spoken. That is the official Top 10 for 2010
And I don't get that Beach House video either. If their music weren't so good, I would've boycotted them after seeing that video.
How's the Interpol album, Ed?
Kanye West - MBDTF
...I haven't listened to many albums.
Only one I cared about:
Kanye is such a douche :|
The album was really good though

He is an entertaining douche. IMO at least.
but a douche nonetheless
I think he's misunderstood.
And I listen to him for his music, not his personality.
