20. Lykke Li - Wounded Rhymes



Best Tracks: I Follow Rivers, Sadness Is a Blessing, Get Some








19. Handsome Furs - Sound Kapital



Best Tracks: Repatriated, What About Us, When I Get Back









18. Gang Gang Dance - Eye Contact



Best Tracks: Glass Jar, Adult Goth, Mindkilla









17. Girls - Record 3: Father, Son, Holy Ghost



Best Tracks: Vomit, Honey Bunny, Alex



Vomit alone really makes this album







16. The War on Drugs - Slave Ambient



Best Tracks: Brothers, I Was There, Come to the City











15. Death Cab for Cutie - Codes and Keys



Best Tracks: Codes And Keys, You Are a Tourist, Unobstructed Views










14. TV on the Radio - Nine Types of Light



Best Tracks: Second Song, Will Do, New Cannonball Blues










13. Matthew Good - Lights of Endangered Species



Best Tracks: Non Populous, Shallow’s Low, How It Goes




At only 9 tracks, there still feels like there's too much filler here. But Non-Populous is one of his most epic solo tunes so it more than makes up for it.






12. Cut Copy - Zonoscope



Best Tracks: Need You Now, Take Me Over, Hanging Onto Every Heartbeat










11. Jay-Z & Kanye West - Watch the Throne



Best Tracks: Otis (feat. Otis Redding), Murder to Excellence, New Day













10. Cults - Cults



Best Tracks: Abucted, Go Outside, Oh My God




Thank you, MLB The Show 11









9. Destroyer - Kaputt



Best Tracks: Chinatown, Suicide Demo for Kara Walker, Bay of Pigs (Detail)












8. Radiohead - The King of Limbs



Best Tracks: Codex, Bloom, Lotus Flower



By Radiohead standards, it's a bit underwhelming. But it's more rewarding after repeat listens. Also, it's Radiohead.









7. Lupe Fiasco - Friend Of The People (mixtape)



Best Tracks: The End Of The World, Lightwork, WWJD He'd Prolly LOL Like WTF!!! (but not for the ridiculous title)




Lupe Fiasco makes up for his earlier release this year, aka the Lasers disaster, with a new mixtape. This review sums it up perfectly.








6. Feist - Metals



Best Tracks: The Bad in Each Other, Graveyard, Bittersweet Melodies













5. The Weeknd - House of Balloons



Best Tracks: Glass Table Girls, High for This, Wicked Games












4. Drake - Take Care



Best Tracks: Over My Dead Body, Take Care (feat. Rihanna), Marvin’s Room/Buried Alive (Interlude)











3. M83 - Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming



Best Tracks: Midnight City, Intro (ft. Zola Jesus), OK Pal










2. Childish Gambino - Camp



Best Tracks: All The Shine, Heartbeat, That Power



Despite some awkwardly misogynistic lines, I really enjoyed this as a sort-of concept album (growing up, camp). Donald Glover is good in my books. Now, to get his show back on the air...









1. Bon Iver - Bon Iver



Best Tracks: Holocene, Calgary, Perth




Overall, a pretty weak year.
