1. Matthew Good - Hospital Music

That Matthew Good Album is amazing musically and lyrically. I highly recommend it. On his website there is the story of how the album came to be. Its pretty vulnerable stuff that he shares and it makes the album that much more engrossing (at least to me).

Great stuff that didnt make the cut includes albums by Bjork, Radiohead, Queens of the Stone Age, Monarch, Blonde Redhead, Andrew Bird, Bright Eyes, Low, Maserati, Twilight Sad.... Tons of good stuff this year.
