2. Super Furry Animals – Dark Days/Light Years
1. Animal Collective – Merriweather Post Pavilion

Now, I could quite easily go through the list praising certain choices and dismissing other, but it's a list and I haven't listened to everything on it so it'd be pointless. They included Jay-Z's 'The Blueprint 3,'  but missed Raekwon and many other far greater hip-hop albums released this year. I could go on, but it's their list and the magazine has introduced me to some great music over the years (The Felice Brothers!!) and they have some excellent albums in there...Felice Brothers, Animal Collective, Grizzly Bear, Dylan, White Denim, Low Anthem etc. But as with any list that includes so many things I know and love, I will definitely try my best to listen to the ones I haven't yet heard!

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

Thanks! Glad you're enjoying it! It's definitely taking some time for me to get used to blogging. I'm trying to find a balance between keeping up with new releases and blogging about good music in general. There are loads of blogs which are up to date, but if people find a couple of new bands they like then I'm happy.

Any suggestions are always welcome!
