17. LCD Soundsystem - This Is Happening

May 18, 2010
Critic Score
85
29 reviews

Sure LCD Soundsystem songs are fun, but they also make you question why they are fun, whether they are actually fun, what fun means, whether we can ever answer these questions, and whether when all is done, are you happy with what you’re doing. It’s meta-party music.

7. Beach House - Teen Dream

January 26, 2010
Critic Score

27 reviews

Beach House is clearly ready to step out from the shadows and play timeless music intended for dreamers and romantics.

6. The National - High Violet

May 10, 2010
Critic Score
85
29 reviews

They’ve taken some minor risks, tailored their sound, and emerged with a record that can stand confidently beside Boxer and Alligator, all without overdoing or losing any of its predecessors’ merits.

3. Arcade Fire - The Suburbs

August 3, 2010
Critic Score
89
34 reviews

The idea behind The Suburbs is simple, if not universal. It’s about aging. Of course it’s deeper than that, but if you were to summarize all the underlying emotions and just cut right to the chase, it’s really about coming to grips with the full package that is growing up.

2. Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

November 22, 2010
Critic Score
91
36 reviews

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is hands-down the most ambitious mainstream rap album ever made.
