My top 25 of the year, this was so hard to decide. Beyond this, there's just too many albums for me to rank, that are all equally fantastic. This was the year I really discovered music, with my taste expanding in ways I never thought it would - especially Electronic music, in all it's fantastic forms.

Honourable mentions: Basically everything I've given a four to this year. There's been that many good albums, that my 3.5's (which are all great records in their own right) haven't even gotten a look in.
