New York Magazine Best Of Potpourri

Lotsa lists comin' at you today, the first being a grouping of three 2010-music-related posts from New York Magazine's wonderfully-lowbrow-yet-highbrow Vulture pages. Part 1 is critic-with-a-fun-name-to-say Nitsuh Abebe's Top Ten Albums of 2010 list, which can be found both here and below. Part 2 is a discussion with Oliver Platt, who has pretty cool taste (I love him), on his favorite music of this past year. That's a nice read and can be found here. Part 3 is a poll--who doesn't love a good poll?--asking you, yes YOU, your favorite albums of the year. They will presumably publish the results at some point... That's here. As you can tell I'm a little overwhelmed by the lists, which may explain why I'm using so many dashes and speaking schizophrenically. Or maybe not. Whatever. Abebe's list after the jump.

10. Robyn--Body Talk
Lots of year-end love for the Swede. I neither agree nor disagree.
9. Das Racist--Shut Up, Dude
I prefer Sit Down, Man.
8. Kanye West--My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
7. Quadron--Quadron
Never heard of this. Hmm.
6. Janelle Monae--The ArchAndroid
I don't really have anything to say.
5. Male Bonding--Nothing Hurts
Okay, Nitsuh, I see where you're coming from. Solid pick.
4. Big Boi--Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty
I wish I liked this album this much. But I don't.
3. Sleigh Bells--Treats
Again, boo Ben Konop!
2. The-Dream--Love King
Gentrified music critics love them some The-Dream.
1. Vampire Weekend--Contra

More lists in a few...


  1. What's with your Sleigh Bells hatred? I rather like them

  2. I may sound like an old man, but their music gives me a headache. Very irritating I think. Original idea, though.
