Welcome back to our look back at the year's best music.

Yesterday we named the 10-6 top albums of the year. For those that don't want to scroll down to that post (ugh, lazy bums...) here's what you missed:

Honorable mention: Drake, Thank Me Later

10. Black Milk, Album of the Year

9. Lyfe Jennings, Still I Believe

8. Keke Wyatt, Who Knew?

7. Nas & Damain Marley, Distant Relatives

6. Eminem, Recovery

And here's the cream of the crop - the Top 5 albums of the year.






5. Big Boi, Sir Lucious Leftfoot...The Son of Chico Dusty

GM review; 4 stars out of 5

Twit thoughts: I don't know if we'll ever get another OutKast album, but Big Boi filled the void with a long overdue dose of imaginative Southern heat





4. Erykah Badu, New Amerykah Part 2: Return of the Ankh

GM review; 4 stars out of 5

Twit thoughts: Well, it took her long enough! Badu took her sweet time releasing this but this throwback to Baduizm was well worth the wait.





3. Kanye West, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

GM review; 4 stars out of 5

Twit thoughts: We had to endure a year of his antics but the end result was definitely worth it. Ye stretched hip hop's boundaries in unimaginable ways.






2. Cee Lo Green, The Lady Killer

GM review; 4 stars out of 5

Twit thoughts: In the year's biggest surprise, Cee Lo gave new life to soul music. Let Usher n' dem keep singing their techo songs. Cee Lo offers substance.

And now, Georgia Mae's album of the year:




Just playing. Although it might be album cover of the year. Look at that suit!

Georgia Mae's album of the year:







1. Janelle Monae: The ArchAndroid

GM review; 4.5 stars out of 5

Twit thoughts: One of the most imaginative social commentaries I've ever heard. Backed by an amazing voice, nothing else came close to this all year.
