And that being said, this time i'm going to have to start with honourable memntions who didn't make it, so firstly Angus & Julia Stone's B-Sides, rarities and covers album Memories of an Old Friend, mainly misses because it is a B-side album.. Great tunes off this one though and a regular listen for me this year. Adele's 21 also deserves a mention, great songs and a great voice! The Cat Empire's lead vocalist Felix Riebl released his debut solo album this year, Into the Rain and this deserved to be in the top 5 but the rest are just too strong. Florence + the Machine released their second studio album Ceremonials, which missed more than anything as it was a late release date in November, great follow up though. And finally, Gotye's latest offering Making Mirrors, more on Gotye later.
