No clear standout for me this year, lots of very good albums clustered together so this top 5 could be in almost any order

1 The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die - Always Foreign
2 Broken Social Scene - Hug of Thunder
3 Lorde - Melodrama
4 Japanese Breakfast - Soft Sounds From Another Planet
5 Oslow - Oslow

6-10 would be Waxahatchee, Smith Street Band, Julien Baker, Perfume Genius and Sylvan Esso

Whoops!

Oh well, wasn’t entirely certain about mine anyway. Particularly struggling to choose between three albums for No.5 spot: EMA’s album, Charly Bliss’s Guppy, and Madonnatron’s self-titled. Decided that Charly Bliss is the one that gives me the greater sense of joy when I put it on.

  1. Los Campesinos! — Sick Scenes
  2. LCD Soundsystem — American Dream
  3. Fazerdaze — Morningside
  4. Wolf Alice — Visions of a Life
  5. Charly Bliss — Guppy

Rounding out the top 10 in no set order:
EMA — Exile in the Outer Ring
Madonnatron — Madonnatron
Furniteur — Perfect Lavender
Mermaidens — Perfect Body
Underground Lovers — Staring at You Staring at Me

  1. Jen Lekman - Life Will See You Now
  2. Perfume Genius - No Shape
  3. The War on Drugs - A Deeper Understanding
  4. Nite Jewel - Real High
  5. LCD Soundsystem - American Dream

  3. Kesha - Rainbow
  4. Blanck Mass - World Eater
