1. Pop Levi - The Return To Form Black Magick Party
Awesome, definitely my fave album of the year. A fun album with lots of energy.
Favourite track: Sugar Assault Me Now
2. múm - Go Go Smear the Poison Ivy
A bit of a mixed response to this album from the múm fans, and I can understand why to be honest, the new vocalists do make this album sound quite different to the previous ones, but I do enjoy this album a lot.
Favourite track: They Made Frogs Smoke 'til They Exploded
3. Amon Tobin - Foley Room
Some amazing tracks on here, including two which instantly became all time favourites, however I felt that there's a couple of tracks which are a bit average.
Favourite track: Esther's
4. Amiina - Kurr
Only recently discovered Amiina, hand have been making up for lost time! I've been listening to them a hell of a lot over the last few weeks, beautiful stuff.
Favourite track: Sexfaldur
5. Sigur Rós - Hvarf-Heim
Only a handful of new (sort of) tracks, but still a great album. The live acoustic reworkings of the old stuff is at least equal with the original performances.
Favourite track: Starálfur
6. Radiohead - In Rainbows
Well, this one came out of nowhere! Pretty damn good too. I bought the fancy discbox (which only turned up on Christmas Eve!), some great stuff on disc two as well.
Favourite track: Faust Arp
7. Fink - Distance and Time
First track I heard off the album was This Is The Thing, as it was an iTunes free single of the week. Loved it and bought the album as soon as it was out and was not disappointed at all...
Favourite track: Trouble's What You're In
8. The Quantic Soul Orchestra - Tropidélico
Damn funky! Great energy, great sound.
Favourite track: She Said What? feat. J-Live
9. The White Stripes - Icky Thump
Probably my favourite White Stripes album, very energetic.
Favourite track: You Don't Know What Love Is (You Just Do as You're Told)
10. Björk - Volta
Some good tracks on here, but I don't feel it's on the same level as some of her previous work.
Favourite track: Wanderlust
