It's that time of year when critics start listing their opinion of which of this years albums are the most objectively valuable pieces of artwork. Personally, every year I get less sure I know what that might mean, or who could be qualified to recognize such a thing. Anyway what I am sure of is which albums I ENJOYED listening to the most this year, so I made a list of them. There may well have been 'better' albums released this year but these are the one's I'll remember:

Meet Me In St Louis - Variations on Swing

Radiohead - In Rainbows

Burial - Untrue

The Good, The Bad and The Queen

Dillinger Escape Plan - Ire Works

The Cribs - Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever

Reuben - In Nothing We Trust

Frank Turner - Sleep is for the Week

Jamie T - Panic Prevention

Jeffrey Lewis - 12 Crass Songs

Battles - Mirrored

Tinariwen - Aman Iman

still on my to do list: band of horses, MIA, arctic monkeys, iliketrains, beirut

so what have I missed out on?
