Our end-of-year issue - featuring the 50 best albums and tracks of 2010 - comes out next Wednesday (December 1). But we thought we'd kick things off now, counting down from 75, revealing five each day. Think of it as a form of erotic tease, only with indie albums instead of nipple tassels, or something.

NME said: "Absorbing on an almost parasitic level."
74. Sufjan Stevens, 'Age Of Adz'
NME said:"Who knew the apocalypse could be so beautiful?"
