Yeah, Band of Horses was my runaway for worst album of the year...and High Violet was only average at best, I thought.
Totally agree on Broken Bells...I revisit it every now and then, hoping it'll be better than it is.
I didn't hear a few of those...including 1 and 4...I'll give them a shot in the next couple of weeks.
As for hip-hop...I mean, obviously I love Kanye's album, but it's its own weird beast, for just awesome beats and flow, there's no topping Big Boi's.
I am a hugehip hop fan, but not sure I have gotten too much in the last couple of years. Plus, I am bigger on the top lyricists and less of a beat guy, so we would obviously have different tastes. I am huge on Aesop Rock, Murs, Slug, People Under the Stairs, Little Brother, Del, etc... I feel like you are of a different ilk but maybe I am wrong.
