Cramming for albums of the year

It happens every year - I plan to stay up on new music, but get caught up in a few favorites and get to November or December without a proper list of candidates for a top 10 list. I'm trying to "cram" a little earlier this year. Below is my working list, with some albums that I think could break in with more listens. What am I missing? Let me know.

1. Once soundtrack
2. Spoon - Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
3. Josh Ritter - The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter
4. Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
5. The Good, the Bad and the Queen
6. Radiohead - In Rainbows
7. Over the Rhine - The Trumpet Child
8. Patty Griffin - Children Running Through
9. Steve Earle - Washington Square Serenade
10. Modest Mouse - We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank

To listen to:
Robert Plant/Allison Krauss - Raising Sand
New Pornographers - Challengers
The Avett Brothers - Emotionalism
Ryan Adams - Easy Tiger
Wilco - Sky Blue Sky
