    My favorite album of the year was Sigh No More by Mumford and Sons. Nothing even came close for me this year and I was pleasantly surprised by the Grammy nominations it picked up.

    "Sigh No More" was easily my favorite too. Rounding out my top three are "Contra" by Vampire Weekend and "Astro Coast" by Surfer Blood.

    And I know it doesn't count since it came out in 2009, but I only discovered it in '10: "I and Love and You" by the Avett Brothers is outstanding.

    I also really like the band Girls - only just found out about them.

    That is a great album. Check out Live, Volume 3 if you want to hear the Avett Brothers at their best.

    Same here with the Avett Brothers album. I spent all summer with it. I guess I first heard the material on Austin City Limits, which I think was late last year, but the album was a 2010 experience for me. I'm an old guy who's just discovering how much great music's still being made.

    I've bought more new albums this year than I have in some time, and there's still music out there I want to get, such as the Phoenix ans the National lps.

    Ditto that.

    Honorable mention to the albums from Arcade Fire and Broken Bells. Without putting too much thought into it, either of those would have been the best album of 2009 for me if they came out last year.

    I'd have to think about it more...but 3 that immediately come to mind are Infinite Arms by Band of Horses, III/IV by Ryan Adams and the Cardinals and Plastic Beach by The Gorillaz.

    I've seen both both Surfer Blood and The Thermals (who are from portland). Both very good live bands.
