Oh please tell me you stuck around for #1! I was reading the list while cooking breakfast and started laughing so hard, I almost burned it.

I'm 31 albums into this year, and Vampire Weekend is still in dead last in my rankings.

Ha, I did end up reading the whole thing. I actually like the band at number 1. That particular album would not land in my personal top twenty, but it is completely different from anything else that I have heard this year.

It's #9 on my list.

J/W what's your problem with it Dan? Honest question, just curious.

I don't love Contra, but I love their first album so much there was really nowhere to go but down with the follow-up.

I don't hate it, it's just all right.

For me, I despise the debut, not that I've ever heard it, I've tried, several times, can't do it. On the other hand, Contra had a polar opposite reaction. I wanted to hate it and I couldn't.

You haven't heard it but you despise it? Do you mean you've tried to get through it but what you've heard you've hated so much you couldn't make it through the whole thing?

I've seen a few live performances by them, so I'm sure I've heard at least half of the album that way. The actual studio versions though, I've put on a few times, I'll get about 5 or 6 tracks in and either zone out, or I'll just kind of find something else to do without realizing it and pause the album while never returning.

Yeah, it leaked in like spring 2009, which explains why I've heard it so much more than other 2010 albums.

It's funny that the fucking clowns at Pitchfork named a song called Round & Round the best of 2010 when there was a song released this year, with the same title, that is better. Maybe they got confused.

YouTube - Selena Gomez & The Scene - Round & Round

Those little drum fills are dope, the bridge is hot, and the vocals are surprisingly nuanced for a girl who isn't even actually a very good singer.

Has anyone heard this Future Islands release? It's getting quite a bit of praise on certain lists.
