The 25 Best Albums Of 2010

#18: Yeasayer, Odd Blood

Released: February 8 (Click Here To Buy It Now On MP3)
Best Song: "Ambling Alp"

After kicking off 2010 with enviable amounts of buzz and critical acclaim, everyone forgot about Yeasayer. It's like we needed something to talk about during the early winter months before the beach bands took over. That's a fair assessment, but looking back at the year's releases, it's clear why people cared about Odd Blood in the first place—it's really good. On their sophomore record, Yeasayer took modern rock's ubiquitous '80s influence far left and gave us a solid LP that holds up even after the hype settles.
