Music of 2010 - your favourite albums

Recommended Posts

Donbot, you've inspired me to name 20 instead of 10. :laugh:

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...

:bellazon:

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 :idk:

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 :D

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.

Give Warpaint five listens and you'll be hooked, like me. :laugh:

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.

Thanks, maybe I'll give them more of a chance after I give those a spin (Y)

Ah I see. I listened to it a ridiculous number of times :ninja:

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? :blink:

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. :laugh:

^ 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.
