Romulus 2010

sorry for the awkward number of entries. also i know i'm forgetting something. whatever. (also this is my fifteenth title for this list i apologize. anyone want to suggest one?)
31The Men

lazarus is a fantastic song. the rest of this is still great, just not on that level for me

grooviest album of the year, except for possibly.......
29More Than Life
Love Let Me Go

put off listening to this for ages, when i did i was seriously shocked at the level of emotion

this has a few off-putting aspects to it, but its uniqueness more than makes up for it. plus i love this guy's voice seriously
27Her Name is Calla
The Quiet Lamb

Plastic Beach

......this. extremely pleasant surprise that i kind of forgot about for the majority of the year, which was extremely silly of me because it's great.

i was really pleasantly surprised at the amount of hip hop releases that i loved in 2010
Fake History

first time i listened i thought this sucked, second time i thought it was top ten material. it's neither, but it is an extremely up and down album. the high points (muther) are fantastic though.
23The State Lottery
When the Night Comes

this is such an endearing album. beats out gaslight in the gaslight department for 2010
22The Saddest Landscape
You Will Not Survive

happy that this got some hype late in the year, probably my favorite emo slightly over sed non satiata
21Sick of it All
Based On a True Story

i had sky high expectations for this, and the fact that it very nearly fulfilled them speaks volumes as to how good it is.

the most fun album of 2010 bar none.
19PS I Love You
Meet Me at the Muster Station

so rough and lazy that it eventually becomes lovable. heard a track on the staff blog (!) and got hooked pretty quickly.
18Future Islands
In Evening Air

the most blissful album on this list. makes me want to jump into a tropical jungle pool or something like that.
Public Strain

this is not the second coming of jesus, as some people say, nor does it suck, as others say. it is, however, very very good.
16Max Richter

i was a little underwhelmed by this at first, but it's become one of my top seven or so most listen to albums this year.
15The Menzingers
Chamberlain Waits

didn't think much of this at the beginning of the year, but haven't been able to lay off lately. in five years i might listen to this album as much as my top 5.
14 Dangers
Messy, Isn't It?

love this album because it was always a forgone conclusion in my best of list: 2010 might suck, but at least it'll have dangers.
13Peter Wolf Crier

i almost feel but putting this out of the top ten after how enamored i was with it at the start of the year. fantastic album still.
12How to Dress Well
Love Remains

why doesn't anyone ever mention how fucking catchy this is? everyone's always like omg bad production or omg haunting and transcendent but man does it get stuck in your head
11Flying Lotus

i was so confused at all the hype cause i downloaded a phony version of this (which was still pretty sweet but i digress). got the real thing during the summer and fell in love
10Broken Water

one day i'll find a way to review this (or get mike allen to do it) and everyone will listen to it and love it
9Four Tet
There is Love in You

four tet was pretty cool this year in that i kind of forgot about this for a while, then came back to it and loved it more than ever.
8Bullets in Madison
We Became Your Family When You Died

absolute gem that i never expected to find this late into the year. may not have the same staying power as the others but i'm full-heartedly loving this at the moment.
7The National
High Violet

the first national release that i really, really dug. call me crazy. this is fantastic though, little faith is one of my favorites of the year.
The Golden Archipelago

probably the first album i fell in love with this year. it's grown off a bit, but the high points (castaways, hidden lakes) remain as astounding as ever
5Kanye West
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

anyone who thought of this as a surprise paid zero attention to the singles kanye was releasing, but even i didn't think it would go top 5.
4The Tallest Man On Earth
The Wild Hunt

i really thought this would be my album of the year at one point. the quality of the songs is really just overwhelming at times.
3S. Carey
All We Grow

checked this because it's bon iver's drummer! did you know? in all seriousness though this grew on me like mad. what a pleasant surprise-- broken is probably my song of the year.
2The Flashbulb

was rec'd this halfway through the year, fell in love. probably one of, if not my favorite artist discovery of the year. seriously ideal for summer runs.
1Dark Time Sunshine

basically went wire to wire as my favorite album this year. speaks volumes to how consistent it's been-- has yet to grow off me in the slightest.
