The Year In LA Gangster Blues (And Reds)
Comments from Mallory Londeck
It's so hard to narrow down only ten tracks, but this list is actually pretty great. Would've like to see "A Man/Me/Then Jim" on here but I have very few complaints.

The 10 Best Rilo Kiley Songs
Really like to see How to Dress Well so high on this list. That album was definitely top ten worthy material.

FACT’s 50 Best Albums Of 2012
This is not at all what I expected when I read "new Tegan & Sara." This sounds so young and fresh. But I really like it

Tegan And Sara – “Closer”
it's a shame that it went from being cool to like Lana Del Rey to being extremely uncool almost instantly. . . i still stand by her.

One Year Of Lana Del Rey: A Retrospective
Really sad that Rilo Kiley didn't make the list. . . and rumor has it that they may be dropping a B sides album or something this year. . .

The Top 20 Albums We’ve Been Waiting For Forever
looks like the Matt & Kim single dropped just a little too late to make it on to this list. . . Lovin' that song.

Let’s Shortlist The Indie Song Of The Summer 2012
Alabama Shakes put out an absolutely amazing record! And they had so much buzz going too, I can't believe there is no mention of them! Has anyone said anything about Foxy Shazam yet? That band is unbelievable and they never get any recognition from blogs like this. . .

Stereogum’s Top 25 Albums Of 2012 So Far
Well I, for one, loved Youth Without Youth. I thought it was everything a Metric single should be. . . Also loving this track as well. Can't wait for Synthetica!

Metric – “Speed The Collapse”
Had huge expectations for this single, and I could not be more pleased! Metric delivers their signature rock/electro/pop style, this time with a little bit harder of an edge but doesn't sacrifice a hook in the process. Absolutely adore this song!

Metric – “Youth Without Youth”
After reading this thread I was expecting to find this album pretty average, but I ended up really loving it. I've been a long time listener of the Shins, but never really considered myself a hardcore fan. I think this album is a great addition to the Shins catalogue, and I was pleasantly surprised at how solid this album is. Not a bad track on it. I don't know if it's just me, but it seems like James Mercer has gotten more soulful on this one. I like it.

Stereogum’s Top 50 Albums Of 2011
I think I'm the only person that doesn't hate this list. . . . I completely agree with Ceremonials being number one. It's nice to see a list that's not afraid to rate commercially successful albums high. Of course there are many things I don't agree with, but all in all I don't hate it.

’s 50 Best Albums Of 2011
The fact that Florence + the Machine's "Ceremonials" does not appear completely undermines the relevancy of this list. . . That was the best album of the year by miles and miles (in my opinion). I am also confused as to why Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. is number 6. . . umm what!?!?
