Cincinnati-via-Brooklyn band The National stealthily creep into the Best of 2010 Top Ten, sandwiching their cerebral rock between two brash'n'bossy pop divas.
Having formed nearly a decade ago, the five-piece have slowly built up a huge fanbase while continually receiving critical acclaim. Previous albums Boxer and Alligator were heavily endorsed by music websites like Pitchfork, while Q Magazine awarded this year's release, High Violet, with the Best Album gong at its annual awards ceremony.
High Violet saw the band explore their typically less-than-peppy subject matter - fear, anxiety, addiction, war - in subtle songs that rewarded repeated listening. In fact, a relatively small number of you contributed a truckload of album scrobbles, with the band racking up over 7.3 million during the year.
