Since Beyonce's self-titled doesn't count (even though it wasn't on any end of year lists last year)... St. Vincent.

This was the first album I bought after getting my driver's license in high school, so it will forever be linked to long car rides to school in my green Chevy S10 with my sister complaining about how weird it all was. I was driving down A1A when I first heard the transition from Ocean Breathes Salty to Float On... life was unbelievable. Maybe it's the nostalgia, but this album still gets me every time. And yes, Bury Me With It. Good. Stuff.

Arcade Fire simply reverses the songs from the first half of the album for a 10 minute little bonus track, and it's better than 90% of the EDM out there. Stolen from reddit, but allegedly, this is the 10 minute bonus track in reverse. I think you'll recognize these ditties. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/442014/Reverse%2000%20-%20Hidden%20Track(320).mp3

And the official youtube version is even better. Chorus bumps.

October 21, 2013 on Arcade Fire – “Afterlife”
Was listening to Funeral today, then jumped forward to this and "Reflektor." At first blush, "man it's incredible how much they've grown/changed" and then those first few garbled seconds of Reflektor (which I hear are ripped from Neighborhood #1?) and that first guitar riff of Afterlife bring you right back to the old days: yep, it's still the same AF we all fell in love with. And then I stopped thinking and danced.

When I go back and listen to The Suburbs, I skip a good 4-5 tracks every time, but Sprawl II works so exceptionally well because of the doldrums of the songs before it. The album is supposed to be meandering and superfluous at times because, well, that's kind of the point, no?
