Nothing ever clashes; the varied elements of these songs don’t compete but rather harmonize, working together to emanate an effortless, dreamlike vibe, a “chill” record if ever there was one.

They’re refining their craft, producing some of their most bewitching material yet, but the rest of it feels like they’re merely spinning their wheels while they wait for more interesting ideas to come along.

11. LCD Soundsystem - This Is Happening

May 18, 2010
Critic Score

29 reviews

While This is Happening isn’t as wall-to-wall brilliant as Sound of Silver, if it is indeed his last record with this project, he’s leaving his legacy in just as good of shape as Jay-Z left his with The Black Album before his (unfortunately temporary) retirement.

10. The National - High Violet

May 10, 2010
Critic Score

29 reviews

Should I be so surprised that High Violet ... represents their most, self-serious, dour and morose release yet? 

9. Yeasayer - Odd Blood

February 9, 2010
Critic Score

29 reviews

2. Arcade Fire - The Suburbs

August 3, 2010
Critic Score
89
34 reviews

There’s no shortage of the group’s usual flag-waving stadium rock ... but this time around, they are balanced out by hushed, pensive ballads.

1. Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

November 22, 2010
Critic Score
91
36 reviews

A frequently astonishing, no-holds-barred tour de force that not only eclipses his previous four albums in scope and creativity (no small feat), but also makes everything else on the radio sound positively amateurish by comparison.
