Top 8 albums of Fall 2009 - Spring 2010

A Listmania! list by Geoffrey Caveney (Chicago)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "I think of "years" in music as Fall through Spring/Summer more than January through December. First, music belongs to the young, so the school year means more than the calendar year. Second, I enjoy music more in the spring and summer, so I like to pick my favorites and catch up on the year then rather than winter. Here are my albums #1-8 of last fall through this spring (to leave room for a couple more in the fall-through-summer top 10)."
Sigh No More
1.  Sigh No More by Mumford & Sons
The list author says:
  "#1. Folk rock with an attitude and a subversive sense of humor. It doesn't get any better than this."
$9.00   Used & New from: $1.99
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (877 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Get Color
2.  Get Color by Health
The list author says:
  "#2. The future of rock music. Finally, something new that moves beyond the Radiohead influences. I expect a half dozen great British bands to spring from this."
$14.98   Used & New from: $4.00
3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Together
3.  Together by New Pornographers
The list author says:
  "#3. The best pure pop album of the year on the hard side. Like Guided by Voices songs with a polished finish."
$14.62   Used & New from: $0.63
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (34 customer reviews)

Permalight
4.  Permalight by Rogue Wave
The list author says:
  "#4. The best pure pop album of the year on the soft side. Delightfully unfashionable. Love the lush production."
$13.78   Used & New from: $0.66
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (17 customer reviews)

Sainthood
5.  Sainthood by Tegan & Sara
The list author says:
  "#5. Right up there with the New Pornographers and Rogue Wave albums."
$12.64   Used & New from: $2.17
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (56 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Tarot Sport
6.  Tarot Sport by Fuck Buttons
The list author says:
  "#6. The middle track of this album is as well crafted as a movement in a Beethoven symphony. The rest of the album frames it nicely."
$13.31   Used & New from: $7.50
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

The Winter Of Mixed Drinks
7.  The Winter Of Mixed Drinks by Frightened Rabbit
The list author says:
  "#7. I expect most best-of lists will rank this higher. (My first guess for #1 non-metal album of 2010 on Glenn McDonald's The War Against Silence.) It's undeniably great stuff, but I prefer the singer's voice one song at a time, not an album-full at a time."
$11.97   Used & New from: $3.94
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night
8.  The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night by The Besnard Lakes
The list author says:
  "#8. It's not pop, I don't know what it is, but it's beautiful and lovely to listen to."
$15.78   Used & New from: $5.80
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)
