Yet another 10x10

Brought to you by "hangover at work," ten more record reviews in ten words or less. Life is easy.

Girl Talk - Feed the Animals
Seriously unreal. Nearly flawless. Jesus.

The Hold Steady - Stay Positive
Will grow on you - expands their sound, for the better.

Black Kids - Partie Traumatic
Surprise! The previously leaked tracks are the only good ones!

Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago
Best opening sequence of songs in history. Close to perfect.

Air France - No Way Down
Pitchfork-fueled mirage - not enough substance to overcome monotony.

Cut Copy - In Ghost Colors
Solid effort that sways toward cheesy just a touch too often.

Tapes 'n Tapes - Walk it Off
Surprisingly inconsistent - hasn't caught hold in my CD player. Weird.

Nas - Untitled
Fuck Nas. Seriously irrelevant. This guy made "Illmatic"?

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin - Pershing
Still the worst name in music, still a great record. (Breaking my own rule but FU: download this. It's this year's "The Orchids" - a very good thing)

Shearwater - Rook
I don't get the hype - way worse than Okkervil River.
