Nominees: MGMT, Kings of Leon, Third Eye Blind, Dave Matthews Band, Michael Jackson, Taylor Swift, O.A.R.
Winner: Kings of Leon
- this one was so tough
- there seemed to be so much new amazing music this year, it was difficult to choose just one album
- but if I had to pick just one, I would go with Kings of Leon - Only by the Night
- I admit, Use Somebody may be the most overplayed song, ever, but I am still sticking with this album
- the music, the lyrics, the enthusiasm that they convey ... I enjoyed it all
- ... and I loved listening to it: whether it was while I was driving, listening to my iPod, at the gym, or at the helm of the boat in November
