Paste has already issued their picks of the 100 top albums of the year. The funny thing is if you don't agree with say, half of the top ten, you immediately dismiss the list, but personally the choices fall pretty close, if not to my own favorite albums of the year, at least to some of my favorite shows of the year.
The top ten:
1. The National - Boxer
2. Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
3. Bruce Springsteen - Magic
4. The White Stripes - Icky Thump
5. Feist - The Reminder
6. M.I.A. - Kala
7. Wilco - Sky Blue Sky
8. Modest Mouse - We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank
9. Band of Horses - Cease to Begin
10. Iron & Wine - The Shepherd's Dog
