Last week Amazon picked their top albums of 2010 (so far) and had LCD Soundsystem sitting pretty at the top of their list. Now SPIN is following suit with their own list of the 20 Best Albums of 2010...So Far. And yes, LCD Soundsystem took their number one spot as well.

Ugh.

But that's not to say there's a lack of variety. SPIN's list otherwise looks completely different from Amazon's, and they included my favorite album of the year, Beach House's Teen Dream, which Amazon puzzlingly left out. Check it out:
