-TIE-
Try as I might, I could not choose between these two albums.  They're both great, unique, and addicting albums.
Fun. - Some Nights
Delta Rae - Carry The Fire
9.
Passion Pit - Gossamer
So good.
8.
Taylor Swift - Red
Another great album from Taylor Swift, not quite as strong as Speak Now but still more wonderful music from her.
7.
Ellie Goulding - Halcyon
She went from someone I'd never heard of to taking over my ipod.
6.
Freelance Whales - Diluvia
SUCH a great album.  Do yourself a favor and get their stuff.  You'll love it.  And I apologize for calling them Freestyle Whales on the podcast.
5.
Jay Brannan - Rob Me Blind.
If he isn't one of the best singer/songwriters out there right now then I don't know what I am talking about.
4.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - The Heist
I bought this album to show support for a hip-hop artist brave enough to put out a song like Same Love and then come out and defend the teacher who was suspended for playing it in class.  I didn't expect to have one of the best albums of the year on my hands, and one of my favorite hip hop albums ever.
3.
Shiny Toy Guns - III
Another album that came out of nowhere.  A welcome return and a brilliant comeback release.
2.
Frank Ocean - Channel Orange
This guy is on pretty much every top ten list and deserves it.  This might be the most important hip/hop release in years not just from his personal life but because it's just that damn good.
1.
Flobots - The Circle in the Square
I've been listening to and talking about this album since it's release months ago.  The first time I heard it turned into fifth time I heard it because I could not turn it off.  Lyrically brilliant, musically stellar, important, entertaining, smart, unique.  Top of their game.  Do yourself a favor and buy this.
