- Alicia Keys - As I Am: She just gets better and better. Get the whole album!
- Led Zeppelin - Mothership: A whole set of remastered immortal rock classics. What's not to love?!
- Radiohead - In Rainbows: Last month I wasn't so sure, now I'm in love with it! Hurry and get the download, today is the last day!
- Dave Gahan - Kingdom: Brooding droning rock from lead singer of Depeche Mode
- Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings - 100 Days, 100 Nights: Amy Winehouse's backing band strike out on their own with their original lead singer (while she's sorts out her messy life). Raw, old-fashioned soulful vocals reminiscent of early Tina Turner before she went all Eurotrash.
- Amy Winehouse - Back to Black: In honor of her multiple Grammy nominations, an achingly beautiful track from her last album. I just hope she doesn't end up as this generation's Janis Joplin.
- Mark Ronson with Amy Winehouse - Valerie: Perfection! And a great video too.
- The Cinematic Orchestra - To Build A Home: The most beautiful song you'll hear all year, with lead vocals by Patrick Watson.
- Sia - Day Too Soon: A beautiful and warm song for winter. If it ever shows up.
- Foo Fighters - Long Road to Ruin: Solid reliable rock from the Fighters' latest album with a fun video.
- Queens of The Stone Age - Make It Wit Chu: A sexy track from one of my favorite rock bands.
- Chromeo - Bonafide Lovin': 80's flavored dance pop by a Montreal duo, one Arab and one Jewish. Just proves that music fosters peace and understanding as long as the politicians stay away.
- Various Artists - Through The Wilderness - A Tribute to Madonna: A hit and miss collection of covers of Madonna classics by some obscure Indie bands. Some are good, some are just deranged!
- The Killers - Don't Shoot Me, Santa: This year's best Christmas song.
