Re: MOJO EOY 2010

Wow. John Grant at #1 and MGMT in the top 5. Didn't see that coming. Will give both of those another spin now.

Re: MOJO EOY 2010

They gave perfect ratings to both albums, and also to Joanna Newsom, thats why i expected a higher placement, but top 20 and making the Q list (Ys didnt back in 2006) is cool.

Re: MOJO EOY 2010

THANKS for posting this list now -- it will take a few weeks for my issue of Mojo to arrive in the mail, and I was eager to know what topped their list.

Fabulous for John Grant -- a gorgeous album, well-deserving of the top rank. Also great to see Doug Paisley at #10.

Q: where are Robyn, Sleigh Bells, Perfume Genius and Twin Shadow?
