    If anything, Meg Myers - Take Me To The Disco is at the very least the most overlooked album of this year. Bums me to only see it on a handful of lists.

    In any case, Happy New Year everyone!

    Plenty of good music this year, but a little heavy on B/B+ material and not much in the way of A/A+ albums. There were a lot of records with a handful of solid songs, but not that many that I think are great top-to-bottom. Definitely didn't make it easy to put my list together. Overall, this was probably one of the weaker years of the 2010s for me from an album perspective.

    With that said, here are some records I didn't see too many people talking about that I think are pretty good and deserve more attention:

    The Night Game - The Night Game (80's-type rock pop)
    Elder Brother - Stay Inside (heavy alternative americana)
    McCafferty - Yarn (neurotic, brash soft/loud punk)
    Household - Everything A River Should Be (moody, intricate alternative)
    Mat Kearney - CRAZYTALK (mostly acoustic/electronic pop)
    Real Friends - Composure (sad pop punk)
    The Aces - When My Heart Felt Volcanic (80's-type alternative pop)
    The Academic - Tales From The Backseat (basically Neon Trees)
    Barely Civil - We Can Live Here Forever (sad, gritty singalongs)
    With Confidence - Love And Loathing (very melodic pop punk)

    cringey and sameworthy Prestigious

    I admire your enthusiasm. I think you've mentioned her album enough to where anyone checking this thread is going to consider giving it a listen. However, I'm worried you're going to reach the law of diminishing returns with these posts. People who subscribe to threads (like me) are going to catch on that these Meg Myers posts are a bit cyclical.
