26. The National - High Violet

May 10, 2010
Critic Score

29 reviews

Simmering more than it strikes, High Violet coaxes you into baroque indie darkness rather than shines bright pop lights.

7. Grinderman - Grinderman 2

September 14, 2010
Critic Score
81
19 reviews

Throughout Grinderman 2., the guitars and violins pant and howl with a visceral, veteran’s swagger. Late middle age has never sounded so thrilling.

5. Jamey Johnson - The Guitar Song

September 14, 2010
Critic Score
90
6 reviews

If Johnson seems uninterested in Nashville's warm-and-cuddly act, he agrees with its insistence on crackerjack songcraft, and that keeps The Guitar Song from hardening into tough-guy drudgery.

3. Arcade Fire - The Suburbs

August 3, 2010
Critic Score
89
34 reviews

The Suburbs burns on behalf of the belief that modern culture is missing its heart — and to give up the search is to send one’s soul to oblivion.

1. Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

November 22, 2010
Critic Score
91
36 reviews

It's a sinister, orchestral, hugely grandiose affair that owes as much to the artist's self-aggrandizing ego as to the voracious id that would destroy it publicly.
