It didn't quite measure up to their first album for me, but I still really enjoyed it, especially the more I listened to it. I agree about Giving up the Gun, but I also think Horchata is a great song.
I had a chance to see three of my 2010 favorites in concert this year: Vampire Weekend in Asheville, NC, Mumford and Sons in Washington, DC, and the Avett Brothers in Charlottesville, VA. All three were phenomenal shows.
