If you haven't been following the music scene lately - hey, sh*t happens - you might've missed the emergence of Sleigh Bells into the national spotlight.

Our favorite movies, our favorite TV shows, and even our favorite music, and this year, we had a lot of great albums. But don't worry, I won't be going on and on about how great the new Kanye album is, nor will try and debate with you Pinkerton loving elitists how great the new Weezer albums were because it'd be like talking to a brick wall. What I will do, however, is tell you about the 30 best albums from this year you need to hear.
