21 Jan 2011, 20:46 by desaparecid0This year I think I listened to more albums than I ever have before. I've tried to actively check out anything I hear about that sounds interesting or that someone tells me about. New genres, new labels, there was some serious innovation.
My biggest music crush of the year ended up being chillwave. Coming out of a year where I was listening to every dubstep single I could find, chillwave provided the perfect music for this past summer. Even now, listening to jj or Washed Out takes me back to roof top parties and 90 degree days.
Here is a list of the albums I liked the most from 2010. I'm sure I missed a bunch of stuff. Subject to change.
1. The Wild Hunt by The Tallest Man on Earth
2. Foxy Shazam by Foxy Shazam
3. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy by Kanye West
4. Marrow of the Spirit by Agalloch
5. Glowing In The Darkest Night/Spilling Over Every Side/Make Up a Changing Mind by Pretty Lights
6. The Suburbs by The Arcade Fire
7. The Monitor by Titus Andronicus
8. n° 3 by jj
14 Jan 2011, 19:08 by kenjisdoseHappy new year, fellow lastfmers!
These are the best albums of 2010 according to my plays. I don't know why it's not there but Crystal Castles would probably top the list. Apparently there's something dodgy's going on with them.
25. Matthew Dear - Black City
24. Massive Attack - Heligoland
23. Ratatat - LP4
22. Owen Pallett - Heartland
21. The Black Keys - Brothers
20. LCD Soundsystem - This Is Happening
19. Napoleon Solo - Napoleon Solo En La Ópera
18. Yeasayer - Odd Blood

Yes, a countdown of the year’s best – how original, right? I’ll bet you haven’t seen one of THOSE before! Nah… I’m fully aware that this is about the 853,329th year-end list to surface on the internet, and little more than yet another opinion tossed onto the rather large heap. But hey, it could turn out to be a good read – you might discover a new band, or in the very least have your own opinions backed up (or better yet, disagreed with entirely, and you can make annoyed groans at your monitor). And what else have you got to do, anyway? Why not read about what some random guy on the net thinks about the year in music? Trust me, those hot thumbnails you were checking out on spankwire ain’t goin’ anywhere. So, without further ado, let’s get on with it, shall we?
100. Interpol – Interpol
30 Dec 2010, 15:32 by Quicksand227- Favourite albums:
1. Massive Attack - Heligoland
2. Bonobo - Black Sands
3. Valgeir Sigurðsson - Draumalandið
I bought this album right after the phenomenal Whale Watching Tour (Ben Frost | Nico Muhly | Sam Amidon | Valgeir Sigurðsson with Una Sveinbjarnardóttir & Borgar Magnason) concert in Berlin.
Draumalandið is the soundtrack to an icelandic documentary about the exploitation of Iceland's natural resources of the same name.
Amongst others, the score features Valgeir's collaborators and Bedroom Community labelmates Ben Frost, Sam Amidon and Nico Muhly.
This leads to a very wide instrumentarium (for example, combining electronic sounds with hauting string sections and banjo) while still managing to keep a coherent overall sound.

14. Spoon – Transference
13. Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson – Break Up
12. Charlotte Gainsbourg –IRM
11. Jack Johnson - To The Sea
