As a follow up to http://www.giantbomb.com/forums/off-topic/31/top-5-favorite-songs-of-the-year/568671/#45 I thought I'd jump straight into the best albums of the year. Most of my favorite songs from the previous list are part of my favorite albums this year which isn't often the case, it's just been a really strong year for great albums in my opinion. So what are your favorite albums this year? You're welcome to order them or not.

Here's my picks:

1. Hot Chip - In Our Heads

The strongest album release this year for me but it's followed very closely. I love every track on it apart from the lead single (Night and Day) which I really dislike.

Thank you for introducing me to Hot Chip. They are fantastic.

  1. Kendrick Lamar - Good Kid m.A.A.d City.
  2. Big K.R.I.T. - 4eva N A Day (it's a free mixtape but whatever)
  3. OC & Apollo Brown - Trophies
  4. Joe Budden - A Quarter On The Loose (Same as Big K.R.I.T., free mixtape)
  5. Lushlife - Plateau Vision

Honorable mentions:

  • Nas - Life Is Good
  • Big K.R.I.T. - Live from Da Underground
  • M83 - Hurry Up, We're Dreaming
  • Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - The Heist
  • Chiddy Bang - Breakfast
  • Slaughterhouse - On The House

Overall, pretty disappointing year in music, the only impressive released were the top 2 for me, the rest was just good to okay.

In no particular order:

Springsteen: Wrecking Ball

The Cribs: In the belly of the brazen bull

Jack White: Blunderbuss

Tame Impala: Lonerism

And then probably Jake Bugg- Jake Bugg, but I've heard good things about the Neil Youngs album just haven't listened to it yet so maybe change to that in the future.

Overall seems a little underwhelming of a year.
