Hmm, still can't get a top 10 together at the moment, partly because I don't think there's been a ton of stuff to make me go WOW this year, but also I'm conscious that there's some albums I've got that I haven't given enough time, such as MGMT, Portishead, Elbow etc. There's also the stuff that's springing up some lists now, that I might investigate which may affect year end such as Glasscandy, Crystal Castles, Metronomy, Lykke Li.

Album's that do spring to mind that should feature - Lindstrom, Cut Copy, M83, Camille, Bon Iver, Eine Kleine Nacht Musik... just what else and what order>

Top 10 then...

01 - Eine Kleine Nacht Musik - Eine Kleine Nacht Musik

02 - Cut Copy - In Ghost Colours

03 - Emiliana Torrini - Me And Armini

04 - Lindstrom - Where You Go I Go Too

05 - Black Mountain - In The Future

06 - Camille - Music Hole

07 - M83 - Saturdays = Youth

08 - David Holmes - The Holy Pictures

09 - Padded Cell - Night Must Fall

10 - Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago

I haven't put too much thought into this, I just listed some stand-out albums (for me, at least) and then referred to last.fm plays to trim it down when I couldn't decide between the remaining entries.

01 - Johnny Foreigner - Waited Up 'til It Was Light

02 - No Age - Nouns

03 - Los Campesinos! - Hold On Now, Youngster...

04 - Dananananaykroyd - Sissy Hits

05 - Times New Viking - Rip It Off

06 - The Mae Shi - Hlllyh

07 - Laura Marling - Alas I Cannot Swim

08 - Why? - Alopecia

09 - Abe Vigoda - Skeleton

10 - Marnie Stern - This Is It and I Am It and You Are It and So Is That and He Is It and She Is It and It Is It and That Is That

I know Sissy Hits isn't a full album but it's one of the best cds I bought this year so I put it in anyway.
