In no order, my shortlist of 15 - all of which I have loved - is:

Keane - Perfect Symmetry
Amy Winehouse - Back to Black
Radiohead - In Rainbows
The xx - eponymous
Grizzly Bear - Veckatimest
Fleet Foxes - eponymous
Vampire Weekend - eponymous
The Verve - Forth
Paul Weller - Wake Up The Nation
The Shins - Wincing The Night Away
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Show Your Bones
Lady Gaga - The Fame
Joanna Newsom - Ys
RHCP - Stadium Arcadium
