As the title says.

It's difficult for me - I can't remember what's been released this year! And I've not bought/listened to anywhere near as much music as I was doing the last couple of years. My top two are easy though...

Image

Arcade Fire - The Suburbs

Image

Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

Then third would probably be...

Image

Mystery Jets - Serotonin

Then I thought this was brilliant...

Image

Foals - Total Life Forever

And fifth - I know it's not really a top five album but I liked it because I love them muchly and I finally got to see them live after wanting to for a few years...

We Are Scientists - Barbara

As this thread is for top five albums, I've taken the trouble of editing your post appropriately.

Trust you won't mind :cool:

7. Beach Fossils - Beach Fossils
8. Broadcast & the Focus Group - ....Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age**
9. Magic Lantern - Platoon
10.Dum Dum Girls - I Will Be


The only ones I've heard out of here. Gemini was okay, it's the Raveonettes worst work yet. The Black Angels would probably make my top 10, though.

I agree about the Raveonettes, but when you're talking about them, it's an incredibly high standard. Some of their worst stuff is better than some bands best stuff.:cool:

Lust Lust Lust is my favourite album of their's, I think it's a belter, but never been much of a big fan tbh. This album stood out as shite to me, though.

It's certainly not their best, but it's not shite. I still say their best was the mini 'Whip it On'. I do like Lust Lust Lust.

Always tricky, but to get started:

Image

LCD Soundsystem - This is Happening. Probably my favourite of the year. Groovy.

Image

Arcade Fire - The Suburbs. Loads going on in this one. Still notice new charms every time I listen to it. "Mountains Beyond Mountains" has to be one of the tunes of the year too.

Image

Underworld - Barking. I thought this was going to be a bit naff. Ended up really liking it. Prolly one of my all-time favourite bands.

Got a few that I can't quite decide which two of to put in my five. Might have a recap on the drive home and the next couple of trips to the gym.

Wrestling's generally a good way of working off the post christmas calorie overload.

fancy coming for a sweaty grapple and roll around?
