3. Swans - The Seer vs. 2. The National - Trouble Will Find Me
I thought I was going to vote for The Seer beforehand, but songs by The National have a way of sneaking up on you. Both are great, dark albums though. Tough choice.

5. Beach House - Depression Cherry vs. 1. The Original Soundtrack - O Brother, Where Art Thou?
7. The Bees - Free The Bees vs. 4. Deltron 3030 - Deltron 3030
6. Sweet Trip - Velocity: Design: Comfort vs. 8. Game Theory - The Big Shot Chronicles
