RE: So, what are your top 10 albums of the year?

I don't even think I *bought* 10 albums this year.....But......I'll put on a couple.

Muse - The Resistance
Kris Allen - Self-titled
Daughtry - Leave This Town

I'm gonna put on 30 Seconds to Mars even though I dont own it yet because I LOVE the single (I cannot stop listening to it). I'm hoping to get the album for Christmas, I asked for it. :)

Great topic, Evan! :)

Oh, I really want to participate in this one. Later today, maybe?

Kyle I'm looking forward to your list (if you don't post it here, I'll just get it from mediareviews). I always find one or two new bands that I end up loving from your lists.

Sarah, I can't wait for 30 Seconds either!

ThinkTwice, there are bands on your list that pop up for me now and again that I've never heard, but need to check out: Bon Iver and Grizzly Bear.

RE: So, what are your top 10 albums of the year?

Overall, I thought it was a pretty disappointing year in music for me, but my picks include:

1. Crack the Sky - Mastodon
2. Black Gives Way To Blue - Alice In Chains
3. Blue Record - Baroness
4. Axe to Fall - Converge
5. Walking on a Dream - Empire of the Sun
6. Wavering Radiant - Isis
7. Merriweather Post Pavilion - Animal Collective
8. Hospice - Antlers
9. Veckatimest - Grizzly Bear
10. Night Is The New Day - Katatonia

This was a tough list but I think it's pretty accurate.  Like I mentioned earlier, it was mostly a disappointing year for me in new music so I spent just as much time with older releases as I did with new.  Here's to a far superior 2010!

I love how everyone has different tastes of music but we all share a common bond of Jimmy/Ours. :) I've discovered some new stuff thanks to threads like these, so for that, I thank you all.

I am an idiot for not including U2 on my list.

That is a fabulous album.

DMB's new one is good too, it lived in my CD player in my car for awhile. :)

You know I adore the new U2 album if I pick that over big whiskey. Whiskey was a great comeback record by a band I've seen 65 times, but no line is a timeless masterpiece.

Oh! Oh! I've only listened to it once (and I was writing a paper when I was doing it). I remember enjoying it a lot, and that's why I included it in honorable mention.

I need to listen to it again very soon, it seems.

RE: So, what are your top 10 albums of the year?

I've had this album sitting around for months, and simply forgot about it, then gave it a distracted listen, and then let it collect dust.

And you describe it this way?

I suck.

RE: So, what are your top 10 albums of the year?

I think a lot of that album has to do with Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois being much more involved in the songwriting process than usual. I consider those two musical geniuses and that coupled with Steve Lillywhite mixing and co-producing just creates the perfect storm. I didn't mean to interrupt the album of the year thread but this effort will stay with me for decades just like the joshua tree. It's just that good.
