Feels like a fantastic year for music, though I may have just been paying a little more attention recently - and being active again on HH has made a big difference, some great recommendations.

Would have struggled to come up with a top ten for most years of the 00s, but for 2010, ten isn't enough:

1) These New Puritans - Hidden
2) Field Music - Measure (I reckon their baroque pop-prog would actually appeal to quite a few HHers - strong elements of Hammill and 80s King Crimson in here)
3) Magic Lantern - Platoon
4) Jane Weaver - The Fallen By Watchbird
5) Anta - The Tree That Bears The Equine Fruit (thanks in particular to whoever recommended this in the modern prog thread - a real grower)
6) Sun Araw - On Patrol
7) Klaxons - Surfing The Void
8) Bear In Heaven - Beast Rest Forth Mouth (technically 2009, but only got an official UK release this year)
9) Crippled Black Phoenix - I, Vigilante
10) Forest Swords - Dagger Paths
11) Motorpsycho - Heavy Metal Fruit
12) Tame Impala - Innerspeaker
13) Dungen - Skit I Allt
14) Voice Of The Seven Thunders - S/T
15) Majeure - Timespan

Plus honourable mentions for MGMT - Congratulations & Flying Lotus - Cosmogramma.

No doubt changes to this order and additions will be made over the coming months... have the new Eno, Third Eye Foundation and Salem albums on the way for Christmas
