For me so far it's been a good year for albums but maybe not so good for standout tracks.
I'd probably go for Ocean of Noise from Neon Bible.
I'm a bit bored of it too but Atlas by Battles has probably got the biggest positive reaction from my ears on first listen
"Lord hates a coward" - FOTLeft
"Boyz" - M.I.A.
"Atlas" - Battles
"All my friends" - LCD Soundsystem
"End of radio" - Shellac
"Don't stop the music / Umbrella" - Rihanna
"The way I are" - Timbaland
I've thought this year's been a bit poor for abums - but then, I'm kind of behind on all the new stuff.
Rihanna - Umbrella
Times New Viking - Teenage Lust!
BARR - The Song Is The Single
Los Campesinos! - Frontwards
Cocorosie - Werewolf
because it leaked nearly a year ago but is this year would be 'the past is a grotesque animal'
was last year
by Tellison. Perfect pop tune.
Battles - Atlas
LCD Soundsystem - North American Scum
Melt Bannana - Cat Brain Land
Blood Red Shoes - Its Getting Boring
One of those 5

Melt Banana - Blank Page of the Blind
Cutting Pink With Knives - Laser Hannon
Either Our Velocity by Maximo Park or Brainy by The National.
colleen - joanna newsom
or atlas, i'm still not bored of that yet.
or fake empire - the national
'Hush' - Le Retrouvailles
So unbelieveably catchy
I hear something my Maximo Park
But I couldn't really care less, because by the time he's played the fifth note on the guitar and the drums have come in, I'm too busy jumping around the room/pub/car/office/garden flailing my arms in the air and grinning like a braindead labrador to give a damn.
