From the print magazine (it's not on the site yet), here are Magnet's top 25 albums of the year:

1. Ex Hex - Rips
2. Freeman - FREEMAN
3. The Both - The Both
4. The War on Drugs - Lost in the Dream
5. Against Me! - Transgender Dysphoria Blues
6. Spoon - They Want My Soul
7. Lydia Loveless - Somewhere Else
8. Future Islands - Singles
9. The New Pornographers - Brill Bruisers
10. St. Vincent - St. Vincent
11. TV on the Radio - Seeds
12. Ty Segall - Manipulator
13. Guided by Voices - Cool Planet
(tie) Guided by Voices - Motivational Jumpsuit
14. Steve Gunn - Way Out Weather
15. tUnE-yArDs - Nikki Nack
16. The Hold Steady - Teeth Dreams
17. Cloud Nothings - Here and Nowhere Else
18. Aphex Twin - Syro
19. Parquet Courts - Sunbathing Animal
20. Swans - To Be Kind
21. Lana Del Rey - Ultraviolence
22. Sloan - Commonwealth
23. Perfume Genius - Too Bright
24. Ryan Adams - Ryan Adams
25. The Afghan Whigs - Do to the Beast

A couple of unexpected entries near the top: FREEMAN (which I've never heard of until this moment) is a solo album by Aaron Freeman, a/k/a Gene Ween; and The Both is the unlikely collaboration between Aimee Mann and Ted Leo.

Cool choice for number one, that album deserves some love.
