    Here’s my top 10. This year’s been amazing and two records have already crept into my top 10 of all-time:

    10. Until We Have Faces – RED
    9. Barton Hollow – The Civil Wars
    8. The Valley – Eisley
    7. All Things Bright and Beautiful – Owl City
    6. Hawkboy – Hawkboy EP (only reason it’s so low is because it’s only four songs…the music is incredible)
    5. With Shivering Hearts We Wait – Blindside
    4. Love and War and the Sea In Between – Josh Garrels
    3. We Do What We Want – Emery
    1. Of Man – Cool Hand Luke / Your Sparkling Death Cometh – Falling Up
