This is just so when someone else makes a similar thread near the end of the year, Dalton can claim he was there first

i could probably make a half-decent list of top 10 albums i still need to get around to hearing/buying from 2010.

and then there's top 10 albums of 2010 that i think i should have liked way more than i did.

if i start threads for each of those lists, that would make me better than dalton! and the wrath of mods would rain down on me like hellfire....

Disappointment of the Year: Spoon, Transference.

Not a bad album by any stretch, but arguably the weakest of their entire career. I would MAYBE put it above Telephono, but I'd rather listen to the Soft Effects EP.

I LOVED it at the beginning of the year, but now it's dropped to #30 on the list.

Nothing disappointed me as much this year as probably Scratch My Back. I enjoy some of it, but it really didn't need to take the place of I/O, which is NEVER coming out, I finally realize.

Also disappointed by Ke$ha's EP and All Day, but uh, let's not go into that.

I know their lead singer. My mom is best friends with his, so I am occasionally asked what I think of his trajectory within the indie conscious. Frankly, I found his material with Page France really formulaic, so I hated being asked about it. What's the Cotton Jones stuff sound like? I really don't want it to suck.

What does it sound like? Read the Pitchfork review, I guess. Just sounds very old-school and retro to me (think Lanois' stuff on Time Out Of Mind, maybe? Swampy?), and if I had read that the singer was some 50 year-old dude I may have believed it.

All I can say is that I DLed it on their recommendation and was very impressed. Haven't heard any Page France so I can't make comparisons.

Meh, that'd be nothing new. I always come first.

Funny you bring that up since I had "I Don't Want to Die" stuck in my head for a good while today. Not sure where it'd place on my list having not even come close to making one yet. If I do, Laz won't be the only one reppin' that Harlem LP.

Searching "Sex Church" in iTunes is funnier than searching "Old Balls" on Google Images.

Don't know what my Top 10 is yet, but The Suburbs is #1.

I've listened to about 25 albums, but there's a lot still to go on my list. I'm ranking songs this year, too. First time for that.

I didn't even realize Sex Church came out this year. Never put it on my list
