Best Albums of 2010 IMHO

Well, unfortunately 2010 was not my most successful year in making and doing. 2010 was mostly the year of fixing the things that keep breaking. Luckily there were plenty of great albums to keep me company as my electronics and mopeds crumbled around me. There was a bit of shuffling around from my list in May, but the early year albums are well represented. Mostly because I haven't gotten the albums that came out in the last couple months. Anyway, here are my favorite 18 albums of 2010. Happy 2011!

1. Arcade Fire - The Suburbs
2. The Tallest Man On Earth - The Wild Hunt
3. Nathaniel Rateliff - In Memory of Loss
4. Apples in Stereo - Travellers in Space and Time
5. The New Pornographers - Together
6. Surfer Blood - Astro Coast
7. Portugal. The Man - American Ghetto
8. Broken Bells - Broken Bells
9. LCD Soundsystem - This Is Happening
10. Mumford & Sons - Sigh No More
11. Best Coast - Crazy For You
12. The Radio Dept. - Clinging to a Scheme
13. Cameron Scott Fraser - Promised Land
14. Beach House - Teen Dream
15. Vampire Weekend - Contra
16. Frightened Rabbit - The Winter of Mixed Drinks
17. Titus Andronicus - The Monitor
18. Land of Talk - Cloak and Cipher

Yeah, I suppose I can agree with some of your selections... #13 sticks out the most for some reason.
