My Very Own Best Albums Of 2010.

Sign in to follow this  


This is my personal list of 2010's best albums.


1. Little Women - Throat


A clear winner for me; fresh and exciting and like nothing else.

It's a rare kind of musical journey. Unforgettable and unrelenting. I love it.


2. Xiu Xiu - Dear God, I Hate Myself

3. Arcade Fire - The Suburbs

4. Owen Pallett - Heartland

5. Titus Andronicus - The Monitor

6. Caribou - Swim

7. Bonobo - Black Sands

8. The National - High Violet

9. Zs - New Slaves

10. Four Tet - There Is Love In You


A good year for indie kids. Arcade Fire come back and kill it yet again.

Xiu Xiu's new stuff is heavenly. Titus Andronicus breathe new life into indie punk.

Zs prove their worth and Caribou, Bonobo and Four Tet make 2010 a laid back beat fest.


11. Wild Nothing - Gemini

12. Pulled Apart By Horses - Pulled Apart By Horses

13. Interpol - Interpol

14. Sufjan Stevens - The Age Of Adz

15. Flying Lotus - Cosmagramma

16. Autechre - Oversteps

17. Autolux - Transit Transit

18. Jaga Jazzist - One-Armed Bandit

19. Los Campesinos! - Romance Is Boring

20. Jónsi - Go


Wild Nothing warm the hearts of shy lo-fi types everywhere.

Pulled Apart By Horses rock out and they do it very, very, very well.

Sufjan gets his bleep on and Interpol offer a suprising and highly intelligent album.

Los Camps dominate complex pop tunes and Jónsi makes a dance pop Sigur Ros album.


21. Silver Mt. Zion - Kollaps Tradixionales

22. Deerhunter - Halcyon Digest

23. The Tallest Man On Earth - The Wild Hunt

24. MGMT - Congratulations

25. Surfer Blood - Astro Coast

26. Woven Hand - The Threshingfloor

27. Grinderman - Gringerman 2

28. Bonnie "Prince" Billy & The Cairo Gang - The Wonder Show Of The World

29. John Zorn - Dictée/Liber Novus

30. Deftones - Diamond Eyes

31. Broken Social Scene - Forgiveness Rock Record

32. Yeasayer - Odd Blood

33. 65daysofstatic - We Were Exploding Anyway

34. The Walkmen - Lisbon

35. Beach House - Teen Dream

36. Massive Attack - Heligoland

37. Vampire Weekend - Contra

38. Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy


Grinderman's second album is hardly different from their first, but the first was damn fine.

John Zorn proves he's not settling down at all. MGMT go in a new and very pleasing direction.

Tallest Man On Earth justifies the buzz around him and will probably be very famous in a few years.

Deftones are still doing an alright job. Vampire Weekend and Kanye impress me a bit.


Good year. Good albums. Good bye.

I still haven't listened to the new Autolux. Is is actually good? Their first album blew my mind, I don't want to be disappointed.

Pretty good list. Hella indie, but I would expect nothing less from you. :P

New Autolux is good but it doesn't touch Future Perfect.

I think I'll always be obsessed with them as long as Carla Azar is a member. :wub:

You may enjoy Little Women, JN, if you haven't heard them already.

Just Youtube "Little Women Throat" and delve into the best in modern thrash jazz.
