What would December be without lists, to summarize? And especially lists that summarize other lists?? So, here are 10 Year-End round-ups - some from places I go-to regularly, others for various other reasons...

#10 Drowned in Sound is up to #3: It's Blitz, by Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

#9 Tiny Mix Tapes' Favorite 50. #1... Merriweather Post Pavilion.

#8 Paste Magazine has a Top 25. #1? The only album better than MPP!!

#7 Treble Zine's Top 50. Up to #21: Actor from St. Vincent.

#6 The A.V. Club's Top 25... topped by Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix!

#5 One list from Dusted Magazine's many contributors'.

#4 Pitchfork has done their Honorable Mentions, and starts a two-day Top 50 fest tomorrow.

Monoliths and Dimensions
#3 The Quietus has an un-list of 20. Which un-counts up to Sunn O)))'s Monoliths and Dimensions.

#2 For ambition, Artrocker's list of 100, currently up to #41: Watch Me Fall by Jay Reatard.
