Re: Your top 5 albums from 2010 so far

1. LCD Soundsystem - This is Happening (saw them in Milwaukee last night!)

2. Joanna Newsom - Have One On Me

3. The Black Angels - Phosphene Dream (the album artwork on all of this band's three albums are really cool... definitely worth grabbing the physical CD)

4. Hot Chip - One Life Stand

5. Liars - Sisterworld

Re: Your top 5 albums from 2010 so far

No Cosmogramma fans on AMF? That surprises me a bit...

Re: Your top 5 albums from 2010 so far

For the moment, my favorite CD's look like this:
1. The National - High Violet
2. Radio Dpt.- Clinging to a Scheme
3. Tallest Man on Earth - The Wild Hunt
4. Lindstrom & Christabelle - Real Life Is No Cool
5. The Roots - How I got over
6. Flying Lotus - Cosmogramma
5. Pantha du Prince - Black Noise
7. Arcade Fire - The Suburbs
8. Deadbeat - Radio Rothko
10. Erykah Badu - Amerykah 2
11. Angus & Julia Stone - Down The Way
12. Ufomammut - Eve

The National is nr. 1 by a wide margin; Flying Lotus took me several months to get into; Radio Rothko probably isn't eligible as it's a techno compilation mix album; Ufomammut is an Italian metal band - normally I don't listen to metal, but this is very good.

Re: Your top 5 albums from 2010 so far

1. Big Boi - Sir Lucius Left Foot
2. No Age - Everything In Between

I haven't listened to many 2010 albums yet, some others I enjoyed are:

MIA - Maya
Gorillaz - Plastic Beach
Meth/Ghost/Rae - Wu Massacre
Wavves - King of the Beach
Deerhunter - Halcyon Digest

Re: Your top 5 albums from 2010 so far

1. Sufjan Stevens - The Age of Adz
2. Flying Lotus - Cosmogramma
3. Titus Andronicus - The Monitor
4. The National - High Violet
5. Beach House - Teen Dream

Very strong year. Still need to dive further into more albums ie. Halcyon Digest. Sufjan Stevens is far and away number one and the only foreseeable way that he would get knocked off is if Radiohead got their album out by the end of the year.

Re: Your top 5 albums from 2010 so far

1. Arcade Fire - Te Suburbs
2. Janelle Monaé - The ArchAndroid
3. Vampire Weekend - Contra
4. The Roots - How I Got Over
5. Best Coast - Crazy For You

Not very original, but hey, you really can't beat those 5.

1. Disconnect from Desire - School of Seven Bells
2. Dum Dum Girls

Re: Your top 5 albums from 2010 so far

Anyone fancying an EOY poll for 2010 (albums & songs)? If so, what about doing this in january? (I'm not sure anymore what period we agreed upon starting the '00s poll...).

Re: Your top 5 albums from 2010 so far

We've done a sort of AM Pazz & Jop for the last few years, so I'm pretty sure we will do that as well this year. I'm not sure if anyone has already volunteered to do the collating.

Re: Your top 5 albums from 2010 so far

Would you take Valleys of Neptune, released around March by the estate of Jimi Hendrix? If so, that's my favorite this year.

1) Valleys of Neptune-Jimi Hendrix
2) Plastic Beach-Gorillaz
3) Odd Blood-Yeasayer
4) April Uprising-John Butler Trio
5) Janelle Monae-Archandroid

Honorable Mention:

Arcade Fire-The Suburbs

I thought we were going to start the 00's poll at the start of 2011.

I'm really looking forward to it. Our lists should be deeper and more varied than our lists for previous decades. At least, I know mine will.
