The Morning Benders and Owen Pallett are the clear winners here. My version of Is This It didn’t include New York City Cops because of 9/11 or something, so I feel just fine about lopping it off here, too. What a train wreck that was.

I stand by my original assessment of Iceage. If someone tells you to listen to them, just punch them in the face.

Seriously, though, I don’t get it. Tune-Yards gets left off the list completely, and Iceage is number 3? Oh, Stereogum.

Isn’t bashing the Foo Fighters kind of like bashing AC/DC at this point. If you don’t like one of their songs, you probably won’t like any of them.

I don’t want to be one of those guys who gets stuck in the past with a band, but I really haven’t enjoyed anything these guys have done since The Crane Wife. This is no exception. I really want to like it, but it’s just boring to me. I’ve already heard this music.

I had never heard of Ariel Pink until everyone went bananas over Before Today. I don’t necessarily like the album that much, but for some reason I can’t stop listening to it? I might need help. And I do agree with Pitchfork that Round and Round is a killer song. I don’t know if I’d put it at number one, but I definitely listened to it A LOT when it first came out.

I was glad to see Girls “Broken Dreams Club” EP on here. One of the best releases this year, despite it only being an EP. “Carolina” is a breathtaking song.

Beach House is my #1. The rest I don’t care to place in any kind of order, because ranking anything beyond your favorite seems kind of arbitrary.

Age of Adz didn’t get the critical love it deserved, IMO. Then again, I haven’t listened to it in a couple of weeks and it hasn’t been out that long, so what does that say?

I thought the name of the album was “Sufjan Stevens Invites You to Come On, Feel the Illinoise.” Is that way old school?

Oh, man! I can’t listen to this song anymore after reading your comment. And it was so close to being a perfect album for me.

That being said, album of the year anyone? Nothing else I’ve heard this year comes close.
