2010 Scene Awards - Album of the Year

Well, here we are... the final major prize in the 2010 Scene Awards; Album of the Year! While there are five finalists nominated, I thought I'd give out some quick honourable mentions to give credit to some of the best acts that didn't make the final cut. These would be; The Black Keys - Brothers, Eminem - Recovery, Crystal Castles - Crystal Castles (II) and Laura Marling - I Speak Because I Can. Now with that shout out complete, let's look at our five main eventers...

Arcade Fire - The Suburbs

Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

M.I.A - /\/\ /\ Y /\

Robyn - Body Talk (Series)

Sia - We Are Born

Album of the Year

Winner - Arcade Fire

It was a battle between the Man of the Year, Woman of the Year, Group of the Year, Australian Act of the Year and (Swedish Pop Sensation) Robyn. Kanye and M.I.A delivered above and beyond the expectations put upon them; Robyn gave us not one, not two, but three quality albums and Sia had a breakout year by making the music she's always wanted to. However, it's Arcade Fire that get the nod for The Suburbs, which as a whole comes across just that little bit better than the other nominees. So, I'm going with Arcade Fire... what about you? What's your favourite album of 2010?
