    vote for one and one only. then argue about it using specious logic and irrelevant analogies.

    I think it's a 2010 album, but it's easily my favorite album of this year.

    This is really tough because there are a lot of albums this year that I love listening to. Gonna go with Take's Only Mountain.

    As of now my favorite is the Besnard Lakes' ...Are the Roaring Night. But I haven't listened to it in a few months, and lots of other good stuff has come out so it could easily be overtaken in the near future.

    I voted for LCD because it makes me feel premature nostalgia for 2010. Looking forward to future memories...

    I think Jonsi's GO is still at the top of my list. His Coachella set helped solidify that earlier in the year...I am sure his theater show in october will make that point even more so for.

    I really need to listen to High Violet still.

    His Coachella set was indeed excellent, but I find Go very same-y sounding and mostly uninteresting.

    I still think Plastic Beach is the bee's knees, though I'm also rather fond of There is a Mountain by Common Prayer.

    I find it kind of interesting that there hasn't been a huge uniting album released yet this year that is sure to make FUCKING EVERYONE'S top ten list, a la Veckatimest last year.

    Poor options, as I dislike Suburbs and Brothers hasn't grabbed me too much.

    The best album of the year is Beach House's Teen Dream. It's not only immediately catchy upon first listen through, it gets better and better upon repeated attention even after more than a few dozen runs since it's release at the beginning of the year.

    Great year for music in general with Teen Dream being its apogee imo.

    Broken Bells.... im convinced is the best album of 2010.
    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

    These 3 have made a definite impression on me so far this year:

    Caribou-Swim
    Joanna Newsom-Have one on Me
    Menomena-Mines

    Titus Andronicus' The Monitor is by far my favorite 2010 album. That band doesn't get nearly enough recognition. Mines, Brothers, Suburbs, How I Got Over and Teen Dream are also great albums. Haven't taken a good listen to the new Joanna Newsom album yet, so I'll probably end up getting really into that one too by the end of the year.

    Overall, this has been a much better year for music than 2009, imo.

    Out of the options, I'd probably say High Violet, but I think Heartland still probably has the prize for me personally. The Suburbs is somewhere in my Top Ten, but I haven't decided where, and This Is Happening just hasn't left enough of a lasting impression on me to really have an opinion just at the minute.

    Agreed and agreed, though I do prefer Teen Dream and High Violet a tad more with Monitor being number 3 for me. So many great albums this year though...

    I play Have One on Me more than most others from this year, and How to Dress Well's Love Remains caused the type of instant amazement that tends to herald a new favorite album for me.

    However I'm reserving judgement on this one. With Panda Bear, Deerhunter, Sufjan Stevens, and (hopefully) Radiohead on the horizon, shit might get real in the next few months.

    If the cosmos should line up against me and those four albums end up being terrible, then I'm going to vote for Uffie.
