My favorite albums of 2010

Janelle Monae believes she is some kind of robot.

I have even less credibility as an amateur music critic than I do as an amateur TV/movie critic, so I won’t pretend like I even heard a fraction of all the music that came out in 2010.  Here’s my favorites anyway!

  1. The Walkmen, Lisbon
  2. The Arcade Fire, The Suburbs
  3. Janelle Monae, Archandroid
  4. LCD Soundsystem, This is Happening
  5. The Roots, How I Got Over
  6. Band of Horses, Infinite Arms
  7. Sufjan Stevens, Age of Adz
  8. Broken Bells, Broken Bells
  9. The New Pornographers, Together
  10. Gorillaz, Plastic Beach

Honorable Mentions: Kanye West, Frightened Rabbit, Josh Ritter, Nicki Minaj (more for her scorching guest verses than her album), MGMT, Vampire Weekend.

    1. While I appreciate Josh Ritter and I’m sure he puts on a great show, I’m shocked…shocked that you didn’t at least mention Bob Dylan at Bumbershoot.
