10 of '10: Best Albums of 2010

This may have been my hardest year for selecting the ten best albums of the year. Plenty of albums had great singles (Kelis and Hurts) or were surprisingly amazing (Kanye West) or were exactly what you wanted/expected (Nina Nastasia and The National). But, to really pick the greatest albums... those I would return to repeatedly throughout the year. Those I imagine returning to in years to come...

1. Five Ghosts, Stars
2. Have One On Me, Joanna Newsom
3. The Courage of Others, Midlake
4. Crystal Castles II, Crystal Castles
5. New Amerykah Pt. 2, Erykah Badu
6. The Suburbs, Arcade Fire
7. Body Talk, Robyn
8. Stridulum, Zola Jesus
9. Dagger Paths, Forest Swords
10. Love Remains, How To Dress Well
