Dinosaur Jr - Farm
The Flaming Lips - Embryonic
Railcars - Cathedral with No Eyes (it's a mini-album but it's so damn good I don't care)
Mt. Eerie - Wind's Poem

Not sure what the last one is yet, I'm torn between Timber Timbre, A Sunny Day in Glasgow, and Dalek. And Amesoeurs is up there. Those are in no particular order, except that those are my top 4 and one of those others would be number 5. I've really enjoyed this year in music, personally I thought there was a ton of fantastic music. What're yours? You can't make the post and not list them!!!

EDIT: Dear god, I forgot Earthly Delights. That's also tied for number 5.

In no particular order

Heartless Bastards - The Mountain

Flaming Lips - Embryonic (I'm going to have to listen a couple more times but after my first listen i'm loving it. The song with Karen O is nuts).

Matt & Kim - Grand (I can't listen to this album without smiling).

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes - Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes (I heard these guys on a mix cd and I've been hooked ever since).

The Decemberists - The Hazards of Love (One of the best shows I've ever seen).

I still have to hear the Where the Wild Things Are Soundtrack and Embryonic.

So far my top five would probably be...

Clues - S/T
Dinosaur Jr. - Farm
HEALTH - Get Colour
Japandroids - Post-Nothing
HORSE the Band - Desperate Living

Do you want Embryonic? I'm putting it up for someone already. I could do Where the Wild Things Are as well, but my internet is very touchy at home right now so it might take a couple days before I can get it up.

I really liked the WTWTA soundtrack, more than I almost ever like music with little kids singing. There were a few songs I wasn't very fond of, definitely enough to keep it well away from my top 5 for the year. It's a fun album though; makes you feel like a kid again.

That would be excellent. I quite excited to hear both. I love The Flaming Lips and anything with Karen O. If WTWTA soundtrack is too much hassle don't sweat it.
