I suppose this is what the Beach Boys would've sounded like had they grown up in the forests of Seattle rather than on the beaches of California. On their self-titled debut album, the band's sense for melody and arrangements creates a sound that is both intriguing and exciting. Each of the eleven tracks on this album seems to be part of a musical story that goes through the record, where nothing sounds out of place. Songs like "White Winter Hymnal" and "Quiet Houses" will reverberate in your head for a long, long time. I'm not the biggest folk fan in the world, but I can't help but love the band's use of beautiful harmonies, vocals and instruments, and altogether it's one of the most consistent albums that I've ever heard.

Seemingly everyone's top pick for the album of the year was the eponymously titled debut by the band Fleet Foxes. And it's justifiably so, it is a master-piece that singer/song-writer Robin Pecknold has concocted. Indie-folk/baroque-pop/psychedelic whatever you need to label it as, Fleet Foxes is heavenly from beginning to end with warm instrumentation and impeccable harmony.
