Best Of Far

It's a bit early to say all of these albums will be on my top ten of 2010 rcome Dec. 31, but I've really enjoyed these a lot. I can't find a decent r#10, so hopefully I'll find something with the remaining month and a rhalf. Recommendations are welcome.
1 Jason Moran

He won a MacArthur "genius" grant this year...and he absolutely deserves it.
Probably one of my favorite jazz albums.
Self Preserved While the Bodies Float Up

It's a difficult listen, but it pays off in the end. After their 'Home and Minor' EP,
I was craving something heavier from them...and Self Preserved really brings it.
3The Pineapple Thief
Someone Here Is Missing

I think this is the first album The Pineapple Thief really coalesced into something
great. It's a great, complete album.
4Circa Survive
Blue Sky Noise

I've never listened to them before this album, but it's been my most recent dig.
"Get Out" is a fantastic a vocalist who is willing to just destroy his
vocal chords like that.
5Jukebox the Ghost
Everything Under the Sun

It's a nice example of a great pop album that is cheap or entirely unoriginal.
The melody of "Carrying" has been stuck in my head for about 2 months.
Diamond Eyes

It's just so good. It may be up there with 'White Pony'. Great mix of
aggression, beauty, and 20 years of experience.
7 Anathema
We're Here Because We're Here

The most original Anathema album ever. They build on their older sound, while
picking up the tempo and adding some energy and excitement.

Close to my favorite album of the year, and definitely the one I respect the
most. That someone can sit in a house after work and come up with something
that sounds this good is astonishing.
Sound Awake

I love this album in a similar way that I love Tool's 'Lateralus'. There is just so
much to listen to, and listening to it is an experience. They incorporate a lot of
progressive ideas, but none of it sounds forced. I know it was released in 2009
in other countries, but here in the States, it's my premature pick for album of
the year.
