    I believe in the UK, but 2010 for us Yanks.

    Another album released late '09 that I listened to a lot this year is Backspacer by Pearl Jam. One of their best efforts.

    I am/used to be a huge Pearl Jam fan. I can't say I have been excited about any of their new stuff lately. I can't really say if I have heard many songs off of Backspacer.

    Definitely check it out. Especially "The Fixer", "Just Breathe", "Amongst the Waves", and "The End".

    Correct. It was released on October 5, 2009, in the UK and February 16, 2010, in North America. So by American standards (including the Grammy Awards) it is a 2010 release.

    Just Breathe should have been up for Song of the Year last year. Beautiful song. Hasn't worn old on me yet and I probably play it once a day.

    Re: Top Albums of 2010

    My top three were Gaslight Anthem, American Slang, the Hold Steady, Heaven is Whenever and Mumford and Sons, Sign No More.

    I'm happy that I have XM -- I found all of these bands listening there; when I'm in my wife's non-XM car, alll I ever hear on regular rock radio is U2 and there ilk.

    I guess I represent a different musical tase than most of you. My favorite album this year was Blue Sky Noise by Circa Survive. I really haven't been impressed by much this year though. A song here or there caught my attention, but not much in the way of whole albums.

    My musical taste is I guess influenced by what I'm more familiar with. As far as what album I got the most enjoyment out of it was easy, Ben Folds' Lonely Avenue, but I've been a Ben Folds fan for a long time. 2nd would probably be Band of Horses and Arcade Fire's new ones, but again I'm pretty familiar with them.

    I liked Mumford and Sons, Sigh No More and I can even admit that it's better than Ben's new one, but if I'm gonna pick based on enjoyment then it's easy.

    Ok, over the last week I've finally listened to Kanye's new one. I've liked certain songs of his before but never an entire album, but this one I can just listen from the first track to the last. Part of it is because some of the stuff he says is so funny. I honestly don't think he even believes some of the things he says.

    Cosmogramma is definitely one of the best electronic albums of 2010.
