Janelle Monae & Kanye West top Guardian Albums of 2010 list


Janelle Monae and Kanye West scoop to the top two positions in The Guardian‘s Albums of 2010 list, published today.

Commenting on the difficulty in pigeonholing Janelle Monae’s sound even if you wanted to as she takes the top spot for The ArchAndroid (Suites II and III), the list also commends Kanye West as one of the most compelling artists of our time holding down the number two position with his latest offering, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

Releases from Hot Chip, Arcade Fire, These New Puritans, Robyn, Caribou, Laura Marling, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti and John Grant also feature in the British publication’s top annual album highlights.
