01. The National - High Violet

Best Tracks: Terrible Love, Sorrow, Runaway, Lemonworld

Awesome, awesome year. Especially the top five. The National's High Violet was the third in a string of masterpieces they've put out recently. The album came out in the Spring and it still gets regular play in my rotation. Simply a fantastic record from beginning to end with no filler. Terrible Love isn't even the best version they recorded, the alternate version they released and the live version they played on Kimmel are even better. Love this band.

Unusual amount of great pop and r&b this year, too. Kanye ditched the auto-tune (mostly) and released what's arguably the best album of his career. Hadn't heard of Janelle Monae before this year, but The ArchAndroid was a fun mix of r&b/funk/rock. Robyn released a pop record that didn't fit the typical bubble gum template. More electro-pop, if anything. Either way, its a great album.

Jimmy Eat World's Invented was a step up from Chase This Light, which i think had a lot to do with backing vocals of Courtney Marie Andrews on most of the tracks. There's also a really good cover of Wilco's You And I on the bonus disc. Sufjan Stevens finally released a follow-up to Illinois. It was a big departure from that record (busted out his electronic side) but it was still a great record. The 25 minute Impossible Soul is epic.

A few disappointments: M.I.A., Wolf Parade and Broken Social Scene. The former two, slightly, because they were lacking when compared to their previous material. Still some good/great moments on them though. Broken Social Scene had a few decent tracks on Forgiveness Rock Record but it stank for the most part. Really tried to get into it, but no dice.

Sleigh Bells record was ok. A bit too noisy but some good tracks. Didn't really want to throw it in there but I wanted to round off to 25. So there's that.

2011 is shaping up to be great, especially with new Radiohead on the way.
