top albums 2010


first let me say, some of these were not released in 2010 however, they were still my favorite albums i had listened to last year. without further ado and in no particular order, here they are:

Florance and the Machine – Lung (2009)

Barcelona – Absolutes (2009)

Broken Bells – Broken Bells (2010)

Alicia Keys – The Element of Freedom (2009)

Pete Yorn – Back and Fourth (2009)

Phoenix – Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix (2009)

Band of Skulls – Baby Darling Doll Face Honey (2009)

Regina Spektor – Far (2009)

Band of Horses – Cease to Begin (2007)

Postal Service – Give Up (2003)

bonus album: The Butterfly Affect – Final Conversation of Kings (2008)

i only realized after compiling this list, only one album actually came out in 2010 and most of them were from 2009 which i thought was funny. why didn’t i discover those albums actually in 2009 and why didn’t i discover any in 2010?? my one and only new years resolution will be: to be better on top of music as it comes out. i would have loved to have known these albums existed earlier and had been listening to them all along.
