Favorite non-reg albums this year

Recommended Posts

So i figured in this here thread we could all discuss our favorite non-far albums of the year.

At fear of being bashed as a hipster (this is what we were talking about on the Far thread) - I honestly think Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavilion is a fantastic album, and easily one of the best of the year.

Also, I'm a *huge* Spencer Krug fanboy so I think Dragonslayer by Sunset Rubdown is awesome. My friends think it's odd that I listen to both Sunset Rubdown and Reg. But what can I say. I like diversity in my music. For those unfamiliar with what Spencer does, don't be frightened by the title - it's a truly great album of indie rock (verging on pop) songs. I don't expect too many people to enjoy it though...

WHAT are YOUR thoughts!?!?!?

I think Grizzly Bear's Veckatimest(what I have heard of it so far) is also brilliant and beautiful.

I honestly don't like Veckatimest that much. There are some nice songs on it to be sure, but it's all one tempo and I find it to be rather boring. It's good, but it's not that good. But that's just one man's opinion. I seem to be heavily outweighed (hehe - heavily outweighed! redundant?).
