hardly got into anything new last year but this year there has already been some classics. here is what i've heard;
The Irrepressibles and These New Puritans i'd say are fantastic, 9-10 albums.
The Silent League, Yeasayer, Horse Stories, Besnard Lakes and Jaga Jazzist are solid 8/10 albums.
Retribution Gospel Choir is pretty good.
Tindersticks is awful, 2/10.
last year there were 2-3 albums i'd say were great, and many disappointments. Jonsí, Motoro Faam and obviously much more yet to be released too. YAY 2010!
