Before the noise, there was the brief glimpse of light and then the noise turned to a crushing fear followed by darkness. A piece of, what felt like the door, was stabbing him in the ribs and his left knee was pressed up against his cheek. The pain was coming. He just had to calm down and wait for it.

There have been so many lists around this time of year, I thought one more wouldn't hurt.
Here are my favourites:
10. Atlas Sound - Let the blind lead those... ( Beautifully atmospheric.)
9. Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks - Real Emotional Trash (I didn't like this at first but now...Damn he's good.)
8. The Sea and Cake - Car Alarm (A fresh sound from an old favourite.)
7. Department of Eagles - In Ear Park (Grizzly Bear offshoot. Love that.)
6. TV on the Radio - Dear Science ( Exciting nerd rocker.)
5. Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes (The vocals on track three stop me every time.)
4. No Age - Nouns (just plain exciting punk rawk to soothe the soul.)
3. Deerhunter - Microcastles (a last minute surprise - stunning.)
2. Portishead - Third (The Rip is transcending)
1. Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago... ( One of the most beautiful and personal records I have ever heard.)
She & Him - Volume One. (Caught me by surprise. Zooey's voice is a gift.)
Judy Garland - Judy Live at Carnegie Hall. ( An oldie that I had never heard until this year. It's a fantastic snapshot of a forgotten era. Truly impressive performance with the fantastic banter included.)
