15. Teenage Fanclub, Shadows

14.The Delta Mirror, Machines That Listen

The Delta Mirror, Going to Town

13. The Radio Dept, Clinging to a Scheme

12. Sleigh Bells, Treats

11. Chemical Brothers, Further

10. M.I.A., ///Y/

9. Belle and Sebastian, Write About Love

8. Shout Out Louds, Work

7. Underworld, Barking

6. Vampire Weekend, Contra

5. Goldfrapp, Head First
Solid pop tunes with an 80’s sensibility.

4. Scissor Sisters, Night Work
Never sexier and just what the disco doctor recommends.

3. Arcade Fire, The Suburbs
Listening to this the other day, it truly does make sense from end to end. A little heavy towards the late half of the disc, but very good over all.

Arcade Fire, Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)

2. Beach House, Teen Dream
Dreamy, beautiful, haunting.

1. LCD Soundsystem, This Is Happening
Hands down, from start to finish, the best disc of the year. It’s smart, catchy, infectious.

    And now, the Why? Awards…

Most boring disc, or Haven’t we heard this before? award:
Interpol, S/T
Bad production and mediocre song writing. And we wonder why Carlos D. left the group.

It’s so bad that it’s funny award:
Liz Phair, Funstyle
She raps on it, and I think that should say it all.

Great song but worst title award:
Kele, Tenderoni
Just bad. So bad, that Kele doesn’t even say it in the song. He has to spell it.

Overrated and full of shit award:
Kanye West
Just because. It’s funny ’cause it’s true.

    and finally…

Best reissue of the year- TIE:
The Cure, Disintegration
Nine Inch Nails, Pretty Hate Machine

A great trip back to 1989
