I know most people say 'oh there were so many, i couldn't POSSSIBLY choose' but, go on, throw caution to the wind. What's the SINGLE BEST ALBUM you've heard this year. You can always retract or change your mind later, but right now, this very second, what's the first album that springs to mind when you think "What's the best album of the year?" (that means no lists, list fans. One album. And 'Best Track On It' too). Go on, ignore that Abandon Reply button...
Me: The National - Alligator.
Best Track on it: City Middle. (sooooo good)
