Really belated, but hey, I just started this blog. I like music, a lot. My friends and I are what my wife and others would call music nerds/snobs. Every year, a group of us get together and send our individual top ten lists to our friend Jeremy, who then compiles them. This year, the group was considerably larger, and correspondingly the promotional aspect was further emphasized.
What a bunch of weirdos.
Anyway, here are what I considered to be the top albums of last year.
1 Of Montreal Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?
2 Animal Collective Strawberry Jam
3 LCD Soundsystem Sound of Silver
4 Jens Lekman Night Falls Over Kortedala
5 The National Boxer
6 Menomena Friend and Foe
7 New Pornographers Challengers
8 Spoon Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
9 Okkervil River The Stage Names
10 Blitzen Trapper Wild Mountain Nation
I'll post an update when the composite list comes out. What was your favorite album this past year?
