Any albums from this year where you think they've been unfairly overlooked or over-criticised?
My choice is Arm's Way by Islands. It's not as good as their debut, and it's not as good as The Unicorns (but The Unicorns are gone people, whether we like it or not). But it's a fine album in its own right, could do with a bit of pruning is all. The first two tracks are especially good, and the bit in In The Rushes where they start singing a variation of A Quick One While He's Away.
