One of my favourites this year has been Ossicles by Karl Seglem. Beautiful album you can listen to any time, regardless of mood.

Also liked Brothers by The Black Keys, and Gonja Sufi, and...

Babur72:...Arcade Fire - The Suburbs...
Great album, which seems to be the most popular thus far.

Can be DL'd in ALAC or FLAC from the band's site for $7.99 (£5.11). A shame that all artists don't offer the same option.

Dylan LeBlanc - Paupers Field...great singer/songwriter son of James.

Jenny & Johnny - I'm having fun now...Jenny Lewis + 1.

She & Him - Volume Two. Pure pop.

Laura Veirs - July Flame. Her best album by a mile.

Midlake - The Courage of Others. Everything the Fleet Foxes were supposed to be, but aren't.

Kris Drever - Mark The Hard Earth. Excellent young Scottish singer/songwriter/folkie.

1. The National - High Violet, by far the best album of the year!

2. The Beach House - Teen Dreams

3. MGMT - Congratulations

4. Arcade Fire - The Suburbs

5. John Grant - The Queen of Denmark

I just bought Sufjan Stevens - The Age of Adz and Walkmen - Lisbon, both of which are possible contenders for spots 2.-5. based on first impressions. I was also pleasantly surprised by the new Belle and Sebastian album.

All in all, I think 2010 was a really good year in music.

My purchased 5 of 2010:

Tin Can Trust - Los Lobos

Once Around - The Autumn Defense

I Tried - David Celia

Propellor Time - Robyn Hitchcock and the Venus 3

Listening Booth 1970 - Mark Cohn

and a reissue - the John Lennon 4CD set Gimme Some Truth - fantastic value and a lot of tracks not heard by me.
