20. Lykke Li - Wounded Rhymes

Best Tracks: I Follow Rivers, Sadness Is a Blessing, Get Some

19. Handsome Furs - Sound Kapital

Best Tracks: Repatriated, What About Us, When I Get Back

18. Gang Gang Dance - Eye Contact

Best Tracks: Glass Jar, Adult Goth, Mindkilla

17. Girls - Record 3: Father, Son, Holy Ghost

Best Tracks: Vomit, Honey Bunny, Alex

Vomit alone really makes this album

16. The War on Drugs - Slave Ambient

Best Tracks: Brothers, I Was There, Come to the City

15. Death Cab for Cutie - Codes and Keys

Best Tracks: Codes And Keys, You Are a Tourist, Unobstructed Views

14. TV on the Radio - Nine Types of Light

Best Tracks: Second Song, Will Do, New Cannonball Blues

13. Matthew Good - Lights of Endangered Species

Best Tracks: Non Populous, Shallow’s Low, How It Goes

At only 9 tracks, there still feels like there's too much filler here. But Non-Populous is one of his most epic solo tunes so it more than makes up for it.

12. Cut Copy - Zonoscope

Best Tracks: Need You Now, Take Me Over, Hanging Onto Every Heartbeat

11. Jay-Z & Kanye West - Watch the Throne

Best Tracks: Otis (feat. Otis Redding), Murder to Excellence, New Day

10. Cults - Cults

Best Tracks: Abucted, Go Outside, Oh My God

Thank you, MLB The Show 11

9. Destroyer - Kaputt

Best Tracks: Chinatown, Suicide Demo for Kara Walker, Bay of Pigs (Detail)

8. Radiohead - The King of Limbs

Best Tracks: Codex, Bloom, Lotus Flower

By Radiohead standards, it's a bit underwhelming. But it's more rewarding after repeat listens. Also, it's Radiohead.

7. Lupe Fiasco - Friend Of The People (mixtape)

Best Tracks: The End Of The World, Lightwork, WWJD He'd Prolly LOL Like WTF!!! (but not for the ridiculous title)

Lupe Fiasco makes up for his earlier release this year, aka the Lasers disaster, with a new mixtape. This review sums it up perfectly.

6. Feist - Metals

Best Tracks: The Bad in Each Other, Graveyard, Bittersweet Melodies

5. The Weeknd - House of Balloons

Best Tracks: Glass Table Girls, High for This, Wicked Games

4. Drake - Take Care

Best Tracks: Over My Dead Body, Take Care (feat. Rihanna), Marvin’s Room/Buried Alive (Interlude)

3. M83 - Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming

Best Tracks: Midnight City, Intro (ft. Zola Jesus), OK Pal

2. Childish Gambino - Camp

Best Tracks: All The Shine, Heartbeat, That Power

Despite some awkwardly misogynistic lines, I really enjoyed this as a sort-of concept album (growing up, camp). Donald Glover is good in my books. Now, to get his show back on the air...

1. Bon Iver - Bon Iver

Best Tracks: Holocene, Calgary, Perth

Overall, a pretty weak year.
