It's that time of year again when we make lists that only really have personal meaning, but can probably be enjoyed by others!
Best Artist From Last Year That I Still Listen To: Darwin Deez
Best "Hey, Remember How I Said To Watch This Band in 2010? Nailed It!" Album: "Treats" by Sleigh Bells
Best Album To Fulfill Both Your Rockin' and Reflective Needs: "Lisbon" by the Walkmen.
Best Album to Play Whenever You Have Company: LP4 by Ratatat
Best Song for Driving: "Daisy" by Fang Island
Best and Only Rap Album I've Ever Purchased: "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" by Kanye West.
Best Future Wife For David Kantrowitz: Any and all ladies from Ra Ra Riot. Yes, polygamy is an option here.
Album That I Like A Lot, But Don't Own, And Therefore Can't Really Praise Much Beyond That: "Brothers" by the Black Keys
I Guess I Like Bands With The Word "Club" In Their Name: Two Door Cinema Club and Bombay Bicycle Club have been on heavy replay for a while now.

Best Music Review I Wrote All Year: "No F*cking Around" by Rafter
Best "Wow, I Really Thought That Album Was From Last Year" Album: "Astro Coast" by Surfer Blood
On last year's list, I mentioned that I'd like to hear the Harlem Shakes at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve. This year, there's not really a clear choice, but the general "go for it!" vibe that Two Door Cinema Club exudes on several tracks might be a good place to start.
