Best of 2010 – Everyone else

Filed under: Best of — assman41 @ 12:01 am

Just as I did last year, here is an aggregation of as many end-of-the-year lists as I could find from all the sources out there. And, in case you missed it, here is my own Best of 2010 list.

  • A.V. Club … No. 1 album: Kanye West, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”
  • Amazon. comNo. 1 album: Mumford & Sons, “Sigh No More” … No. 1 song: Cee Lo Green, “Fuck You” … No. 1 alt/indie album: Arcade Fire, “The Suburbs” … No. 1 alt/indie song: Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, “Round and Round”
  • American Songwirter … No. 1 album: The Black Keys, “Brothers”
  • Billboard … No. 1 album: Kanye West, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”
  • Clash … No. 1 album: Arcade Fire, “The Suburbs”
  • DIY … No. 1 album: The National, “High Violet”
  • Drowned in Sound … No. 1 album: Emeralds, “Does It Look Like I’m Here?”
  • Entertainment Weekly … No. 1 album: Kanye West, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”
  • Exclaim! … No. 1 Pop/Rock album: Arcade Fire, “The Suburbs”
  • Fact … No. 1 album: Forest Swords, “Dagger Paths”
  • Filter … No. 1 album: LCD Soundsystem, “This Is Happening”
  • The Guardian … No. 1 album: Janelle Monae, “The ArchAndroid”
  • Gigwise … No. 1 album: Arcade Fire, “The Suburbs” … No. 1 song: Kanye West, “Monster” (ft. Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Bon Iver and Nicki Minaj)
  • Gorilla Vs. Bear … No. 1 album: Beach House, “Teen Dream”
  • The Guardian … No. 1 album: Janelle Monae, “The ArchAndroid”
  • A Heart Is a Spade … No. 1 album: Beach House, “Teen Dream”
  • Magnet … No. 1 album: Beach House, “Teen Dream”
  • Metacritic … No. 1 album: Kanye West, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”
  • Mojo … No. 1 album: John Grant, “Queen of Denmark”
  • MTV … No. 1 album: Kanye West, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”
  • MySpace … No. 1 album: Yeasayer, “Odd Blood” … I’d like to note the neat posters that were created for each album on the list.
  • NMENo. 1 album: These New Puritans, “Hidden” … No. 1 song: Foals, “Spanish Sahara”
  • Paste … No. 1 album: LCD Soundsystem, “This Is Happening”
  • Pitchfork.comNo. 1 album: Kanye West, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” … No. 1 song: Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, “Round and Round” … It should be noted that this listing needs to be taken with a grain of salt as P4K only gave Mumford & Sons a 2.1 rating out of 10. As a friend astutely pointed out, Marcus Mumford must have banged the reviewer’s girlfriend or something.
  • PrefixNo. 1 album: Kanye West, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”
  • Qthemusic.com … No. 1 album: Arcade Fire, “The Suburbs”
  • Rolling Stone … No. 1 album: Kanye West, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”
  • Spin … No. 1 album: Kanye West, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”
  • Spinner … No. 1 album: Beach House, “Teen Dream”
  • Stereogum … No. 1 album: Kanye West, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” … No. 1 EP: Zola Jesus, “Stridulum”
  • Time … No. 1 album: Kanye West, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”
  • Uncut … No. 1 album: Joanna Newsom, “Have One On Me”
  • Under the Radar … No. 1 album: Sufjan Stevens, “The Age of Adz”
  • Urban OutfittersNo. 1 album: Beach House, “Teen Dream” … the peeps at UO did something very cool, not only listing their top 20 albums, but also getting each of those bands to submit a top-5 list of their own.
  • WNRN … No. 1 album: Mumford & Sons, “Sigh No More”
  • You Ain’t No Picasso … No. 1 album: Portugal. The Man, “American Ghetto”
