I COMPLETELY fucked up and left off OFF!'s First Four EPs (which would be top 15 if not inside 10) and the Black Lips' Arabia Mountain. And I didn't include LiveLoveA$AP because I'm a nazi and technically it's a mixtape.
Shameless plug here. Today starts the top 100 albums countdown for LSB. We'll unveil twenty albums a day until the top twenty on New Year's Day. Hopefully you guys enjoy it and can find some cool music you might not have heard yet. I will just update this post with each day.

Yeah, the Immigrant Song is pretty wicked (I hate using that term, but it's appropriate), and the stuff with his wife is good too... it's mostly, of course, droning minimalist stuff, typical stuff he likes to do under his own name. I don't think it's quite as great as The Social Network (certainly not as electronic), but it's still pretty good. Of course, I'm bound to love most everything he comes out with.
In retrospect (I can say that now that it's 2012), my personal top 10, in order:
Girls - Father, Son, & Holy Ghost SBTRKT - SBTRKT TV on the Radio - Nine Types of Light The War On druqs - Slave Ambient Shabazz Palaces - Black Up Atlas Sound - Parallax The Black Keys - El Camino My Morning Jacket - Circuital Mastodon - The Hunter The Civil Wars - Barton Hollow
Honorable mention to M83, St. Vincent, A$AP Rocky, James Blake, and The Kills.

I'd love to see a Sang/Andrea collaborative music blog.
andrea said she wants to do that. maybe we could do it on lsb. i told jeff when he started it i wasn't much of a writer, i guess that's why he hasn't asked me to do more for it, either that or he doesn't like me anymore.
i've been checking out as many best of lists to find some new albums to download, and after rechecking this thread, i had no idea all yall have your own music blogs. who'da thunk? congrats guys. im really proud to play you guys in fantasy sports
