* not released in the U.S. yet
+ haven't listened to the whole album yet (heard 2 or more tracks)
yeah, i know it's presumptuous to rate an album based on 2+ tracks, that's why this is just a short prelim list

Only full-length LPs (i.e. iron and wine's excellent woman king ep not included)
Albums distributed internationally last year but not in the states don't count (i.e. annie, the go! team, feist, mylo)

any glaring omissions? (i bet there are)
