    Never listened to Mumford & Sons before this thread...where the hell have I been hiding? Little Lion Man was all it took to get me hooked.

    The only CD (iTunes) I bought this year was The Gaslight Anthem American Slang. Other than that I usually download one song at a time from itunes.

    I couldn't imagine not buying the whole album. Don't you feel that there is something special to listening from beginning to end on something?

    I also would hate not having the package and art. I prefer Vinyl over anything.

    My favorite album of the year was "Everything in between" from No Age.

    Loved the Kid Cudi album and Ted Leo's also.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Lots of people buy songs a la carte. I don't get it either. I am like you - I want the whole album, case and jacket. To each his own, I guess.

    I'll agree with the Mumford & Sons vote. Absolutely amazing stuff. Some of the most stirring production I've heard in years.

    I was also a big fan of the Black Keys effort. Fun down and dirty blues rock.

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

    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.

    I loved Giving up the Gun and the song Contra, but by and large, I found the album Contra to be underwhelming.

    Sigh No More by Mumford and Sons is $5 on Amazon right now. I meant to check them out months ago after liking one of their videos on VH1 and forgot until this thread, bought the album just now.

    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.

    Hadn't really listened to the Avett Brothers until this thread either...quite like them as well. They are coming to this big festival in Live Oak, FL (a redneck burg about 40 minutes north of Gainesville) on 03/26...gonna go check them out.

    I like the Avett Brothers album a lot too. Mumford & Sons just didn't resonate with me, not sure why. Could be that his voice reminds me of Dave Matthews who I loathe.

    My favorite 3 new albums of the year are by the Kings of Leon, the Black Keys, and Broken Bells with Kings of Leon blowing away the competition.

    Wasn't Sigh No More released last year?
