As each new album is released, I liken my relationship with St. Vincent's music to slowly watching a relative die of cancer. How you can progress from such beautifully crafted songs such as All My Stars Aligned and What Me Worry to this overly produced, synthesized tripe is dumbfounding. A few songs from Strange Mercy grew on me, but I've given up on any hope of her going back to her old ways with this song.

The Antlers Hospice
This is the best album of 2009. This is the best concept album ever. This is beautiful.
The National Boxer
The National Alligator
Just recently discovered that this is on par with (if not better than) Boxer.
The National Trouble Will Find Me
The National High Violet
I feared my ultra high expectations for this album would ensure disappointment, but The National delivered yet again. From start to finish this is just superb.
The Tallest Man on Earth Shallow Grave
The Tallest Man on Earth The Wild Hunt
This guy hasn't released a single bad song. Ever. Will definitely place in my top 5 of 2010.
