Sure, Cassadaga. I listened to it again recently and it has grown on me. The songs I love, I love quite a bit. Lime Tree especially.


I did have it a little high to begin with, though, so I corrected that.

I also added something I forgot.

That's two revisions already after posting it. This is why I'm not good at lists.

1. Bruce Springsteen - Magic
2. Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
3. The White Stripes - Icky Thump

I'm afraid that's it for me. I'm way behind on all the new releases this year. I haven't even checked out the new Spoon and Crowded House albums yet.

haha, I was kidding about giving you a hard time, I was sure you would give me an even harder time for adding Easy Tiger to me list

ranking the top 3 songs for an album was hard enough, I didn't even rank albums in order, I copped out an alphabetized it


Impy, I know you're a huge Okervivialsidsnbfjdjdnd River fan, I've read many good things 'bout them, what's a good starting album?

Here are my top albums of the year

1. The National-Boxer

I can't remember an album coming out having so much of an impact on me in my lifetime. Although no knockout tracks like Mr. November, an incredibly consistent album.
Notable Tracks:
1. Slow Show
2. Squalor Victoria
3. Guest Room

2. Radiohead-In Rainbows

Another excellent collection of songs from the best band of our era.
Notable Tracks:
1. Reckoner

3. The Arcade Fire-Neon Bible

Not as good as Funeral, but not a disappointment by any means.
Notable Tracks:
1. Ocean of Noise

4. Broken Social Scene Presents Kevin Drew-Spirit If...

Just about as good as Broken Social Scene's s/t
Notable Tracks:
1. Lucky Ones
2. Bodhi Sappy Weekend

5. Okkervil River-The Stage Names

An excellent follow-up to Black Sheep Boy. Not as much raw energy and passion as the predecessor, but it makes up for it with depth and maturity.
Notable Tracks:
1. Unless it Kicks

6. Animal Collective-Strawberry Jam

This is Animal Collective finally hitting the right balance of experimentation and pop. Their strongest effort to date.
Notable Tracks:
1. Cuckoo Cuckoo
2. Winter Wonderland
3. Fireworks

7. Akron/Family-Love is Simple

This is freak-folk at it's best.
Notable Tracks:
1. Ed is a Portal

8. Sunset Rubdown-Random Spirit Lover

Sunset Rubdown is the side-project for Spencer Krug of Wolf Parade, but this is 10 times better than any Wolf Parade album
Notable Tracks:
1. Stallion

9. Leaves in the River-Sea Wolf

The best album of the year nobody has talked about.
Notable Tracks:
1. You're a Wolf

10. Elvis Perkins-Ash Wednesday

The best folk singer/songwriter album of the year.
Notable Tracks:
1. While You Were Sleeping

11. Stars of the Lid-Stars of the Lid and Their Refinement of the Decline

Although I don't usually listen to ambient music, this is a beautiful album that is incredibly relaxing to listen to.
Notable Tracks:
1. Dopamine Clouds over Craven Cottage
2. December Hunting for Vegetarian Fuckface

12. Iron and Wine-The Shepherd's Dog

The group finally finds the perfect balance with their low-fi folk sound and instrumentation
Notable Tracks:
1. Pagan Angel and a Borrowed Car
2. Carousel
