My top 25 albums of the year with videos are on my blog (see link in my sig)
 
The Temperance Movement. Old style R&B and superb. Free, Faces, Stones, its all there.
 
Only got a few albums this year:

Bastille - Bad Blood
OneRepublic - Native
David Bowie - The Next Day
 
My Fave Album of the year has been Awayland by Villagers. Caught them last month in London and was one of the best shows I have been to in an age.
 
No idea, but I concur about The Boxers and I quite like London Grammar but I've no idea these days.

I like the sound of this!

Pearl Jam's Lightning Bolt is excellent and looking forward to a rare European tour next year, hoping to see them in Amsterdam given the ease of getting there from Southend these days!
 
Arcade Fire, M-elt Yourself Down, Connan Mockasin, Factory Floor, **** Buttons are the ones I have kept coming back to. Was mbv this year? I tend to overplay things then forget they exist for a few months. Best song of the year Avicii 'I could be the one' - euphoric. The new Paul McCartney single makes me happy at the moment.
 
Just started listening to Public Service Broadcasting - Inform Educate Entertain, which I'm immediately loving so I'll have that on my list.
