So 2010 Kinda Sucked

While putting together my top 10 of the year list I got to thinking r"this is not what I thought rwould be here" especially because I rproclaimed this would be the best year for music ever. rBut with the rlack of the avalanches, radiohead, mbv and pixes coupled with the rsheer rdisappointment of high violet and the suburbs the year was rkinda meh...not to say it was as rbad as 2009. rSo here is my top 10 of the year, it's ok, but In a year I hope to put rout a rmuch better list.
10Joanna Newsom
Have one on me

to long for its own good but still good.
Public Strain

I was actually surprised by how much I like this, it is really quite "cool"
8The Fall
Your Future Our Clutter

After all these years I think they are off their game, but the fall off their game
is still better than most
7The National
High Violet

a shallow husk of Boxer and Alligator. Not comparable to them in anyway. My
biggest disappointment of the year...that being said a shallow husk of Boxer
and Alligator is still good enough to be in a top 10. But with the albums
released this year this should have unquestionable been number one.
6Flying Lotus

It's porn for your ears
5Kanye West
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

I have never hated Mr. West, nor had I loved him. I enjoyed his giant ego but
at the same time I felt it was undeserved. This justifies it, it is one of the best
rap albums in recent memory.
4 Phil Selway

This has not been on a single 2010 list I have been aware of, and that makes
me happy. This is a very boring album, it is crushingly intimate to the point
where it loses all emotional impact. It defies everything Radiohead is and by
doing that it becomes very much a Radiohead album
3The Knife
Tomorrow, In A Year

In 5 years this will likely be my AOTY. This is why I listen to music, this unbridled creativity. I adore this album.
2Neil Young
Le Noise

to have a senior citizen be the leading force in creativity for the year is a sad
fact, but not surprising. This album is the best thing Neil Young has done in
more than 20 years and unquestionable cements his place as the greatest pop
musician ever.
1Titus Andronicus
The Monitor

I really like this album for I while I thought it was a 5 but that would have been
cheating myself. Yes it is emotional, yes it is powerful, yes it makes you want
to chug a beer and scream. But it is just not quite good enough. Still a hugely
enjoyable but not what I thought would be here.
