Brett Spaceman:

It was a strong year, lacking really spectacular releases. While I appreciate the likes of HEALTH, Grizzly Bear, and Animal Collective, they never quite made my ten. Grammatics and Last Days can count themselves unlucky not to be Album of the Year. In another universe they would be. But my choice went to The Boxer Rebellion, a comeback story of epic proportions. Four years ago, Nathan was on life support. Now he's back fronting the most energized and uplifting slice of arena-angst since The Bends. Honestly, I could see these guys come gunning for Coldplay next year. I really could.
