10. Warpaint - The Fool
9. The Phantom Band - The Wants
8. Nick Cave & Warren Ellis - The Road OST
7. Peter Broderick - How They Are
6. Tindersticks - Falling Down A Mountain
5. Neil Young - Le Noise
Who'd have thought that this feedback drenched solo album would be a return to form for Neil Young? Even when the noise is off for a track or 2, it works.
4. Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan - Hawk
Look past the dull title to another strong chapter in this pair's collaboration.
3. Lloyd Cole - Broken Record
The comeback of the year. Edge is gone, but an addictively relaxed collection of country-rock.
2. Sun Kil Moon - Admiral Fell Promises
An austere collection of icy finger picking, perfect for wintry mornings.
1. The National - High Violet
Not an original choice. But unignorable. Any doubts were dispelled by an incendiary live show. A collection of songs which on paper shouldn't instill euphoria but actually do.http://sacredcowpats.blogspot.com/2010/05/album-review-national-high-violet.html
