Best albums, in alphabetical order, are:

Beach House, Devotion
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!!
El Guincho, Alegranza
Fleet Foxes, Fleet Foxes

TV on the Radio, Dear Science.
Only one of those--Lil Wayne--was mine. I second lee's selection of Gang Gang Dance, though. I didn't even bother to make a full list of my own, but it probably would have included Wetnurse's Invisible City, Torche's Meanderthal, and Tricky's Knowle West Boy, and maybe Amon Amarth's Twilight of the Thunder Gods.
