It is, without a doubt, Beach House’s best work, and deserves to be recognized as such.

5. Arcade Fire - The Suburbs

August 3, 2010
Critic Score
89
35 reviews

The Suburbs is perhaps the most coherent schizophrenic you will ever meet, for though the guidance offered in its songs may be contradictory, the subject matter is never under discussion.

Critic Score
82
32 reviews

2. Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

November 22, 2010
Critic Score
91
38 reviews

This album is a benchmark, a high water point for mainstream conceptual rap. It’s Kanye’s most complex and complete release and one of the most consistently impressive hip hop albums in recent years.

1. The National - High Violet

May 10, 2010
Critic Score
85
30 reviews

Everyone keeps saying that this is a sad album. It’s not. It’s an honest album, a real album. And it’s breathtaking.
