Yeah my last list was a kind of shortlist. They're still in my top 10, I just value the uniqueness of the albums 1-9 so much more. Plus I had more of a serious think about my top 10! Two Door's record is more of an LP of great singles, rather than having the full flow of an album. I had to get out of a serious Two Door obsession phase to realise!

glad you saw the light buddy lol but its still a good record. it might be far from being my fave album of the year but its right up there as one of my most listened to albums.

 

Yeah that was my thinking. I had listened to it SO much this year but it just didn't have those top album qualities.

^^^ Christina!

 

Good news: YAY, you have more than 5 albums! :cheesy:

 

Bad news: You need to change your list. That Mumford & Sons album was released October 2009. It's only the limited deluxe edition that was released this year, and since there was the original release before that, that doesn't count. :\

 

oh eff, I always thought it was 2010. :disappointed:

Booooo!

Hmm, it's kind of disappointing not to see LCD on more lists....one of the few artists that has consistently put out top quality material over 3 consecutive albums nowadays.

 

Also, am I the only one who thought the new Deerhunter was kind of overrated? Don't get me wrong it's a good album (which is apparent by my inclusion of it on the list), but I was surprised how well received it was by critics and pitchfork had it at #3 on their year-end list. I thought it was just more of the same (which isn't a bad thing considering their previous stuff) with a few changes/tinkering here and there, but certainly it's nothing earth-shattering.

much like kanye, it isnt the type of music that is popular on here. personally i think it is the best album released since radiohead's in rainbows and best of LCD's 3 and thats saying something.

 

and hey briggins has it on his list! thats enough isnt it? :P

haha, I love that album. One of my favourite albums of the past few years.

 

I agree about Deerhunter. I gave it a pretty average position in my list because that is how much i liked it. More accessable and straight forward than microcastles, but not ground breaking.

I'm surprised at 'Surfing The Void' featuring in many lists. I was extremely disappointed by it!
I loooove it. The title track is now my go-to song when I want something completely insane to play very loudly. Good stress buster. And I love all the little new wave influences creeping in to other tracks. It's a very interesting album- I certainly haven't gotten bored of it. Or else I'm just weird. :shrug:

 

I just wish I knew what had happened to my CD of it- I thought I lost it down behind my desk but I can't find it there. It's been missing for a couple of months now. And I'm usually really good at keeping track of all my cds, even when they end up in piles all over the place. :(

 

Hope it's not too late, but here is my list anyway
Not too late, that's what extentions are for. :D But I have been horrible neglectful of just about everything in my entire life except for school I'm afraid. Time to play catch-up. :embarrassed: And to get some lists up.

Yes. This is Happening seemed like an oddly quiet release to me considering how anticipated it was. But a great album though. Yet I still prefer Sound of Silver by a long shot. I haven't actually listened to the new one all that much since I got it.

 

Not really familiar with Deerhunter. Couldn't get into them. :confused::shrug:

omg, I thought I had submitted mine, but I actually haven't!

 

Am I too late to send it now?

That's weird, I thought you had too. :confused: Hmm. Maybe the thread monster ate it.

 

Added! :D

 

 

 

New lists still welcome, everyone! :dance:
