Pitchfork Albums of the 2010: Honorable Mentions (albums that didn't enter the top 50)

Swans just realized Pitchfork denied them the Top 50.
And they're not happy.

Pitchfork Top 50 Albums of 2010 list is getting close. But first, it's time to honorably mention those albums that "made a strong run to our Top 50" and "deserve a bit more praise and notice". Official Pitchfork page is here. Below you find them under Spotify treatment.

No chart ranking: albums are in alphabetical order. Most notable presences are Grinderman, Liars and Swans, who managed to climb several other top 50 of the year. Enjoy!
