I do not listen to studio records/albums, but instead take in said material live in concert. Above is an abridged list of my top ten from 9Jan 11 to 9Jul 11, with the specific performance location listed if it was a single attendance, or [#] to denote the number of times I saw/heard their album(s) played live in the first half of 2011 and the specific performance that contributed to their inclusion on the list.
Officially a fake account. I'm not sure who, but they're punking us hard. Know is my first guess in all things, but FD is pretty damn creative with shit like this too.
It's not a fake, just a troll. If it was a duplicate I know who my guess would be. They don't post here anymore.
1 The Antlers - Burst Apart 2. The Decemberists - The King is Dead 3. Peter, Bjorn & John - Gimme Some 4. Destroyer - Kaputt 5. R.E.M. - Collapse into Now 6. The Dodos - No Color 7. Cut Copy - Zonoscope 8. TV on the Radio - Nine Types of Light 9. Washed Out - Within and Without 10. Radiohead - The King of Limbs

If he's punking us then he is just the most boring troll. Like, he totally enrages me but even so the best I can manage most days is a "fuck you, dude".
Even so, I wouldn't put it past this board to produce a gimmick troll from its established ranks who does little more than recite the contents of his wallet every night. The 'I don't listen to pre-recorded music' thing is like a great big banner that says 'COME AND GET ME GRAMMA'. Like, someone who knows me that's trying to get me riled up.
Real or fake, dude's just too fucking tragic for me to get into it with him (so you can stop now, Friendly D).
I'll make a list like that! I can do that! Ten best sets of 2011 so far:
January 1st: Titus Andronicus @ 285 Kent (the show started on December 31st, but they went on at like 12:30 or 1) April 12th: The Mountain Goats @ Mr. Small's April 27th: The Joy Formidable @ Smiling Moose May 21st: The Antlers @ Bowery Ballroom June 9th: Childish Gambino @ Bonnaroo June 10th: The Decemberists @ Bonnaroo June 10th: NOFX @ Bonnaroo June 10th: My Morning Jacket @ Bonnaroo June 10th: Arcade Fire @ Bonnaroo June 12th: Explosions in the Sky @ Bonnaroo
You may be like, "well I thought you didn't like Bonnaroo." Overall, I didn't. But the music was not the problem with it.

1. Decemberists - The King is Dead 2. Okkervil River - I Am Very Far 3. Gil Scott Heron & Jamie XX - We're New Here 4. Iron & Wine - Kiss Each Other Clean 5. Radiohead - King of Limbs 6. Bon Iver - Bon Iver 7. Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues 8. Alex Turner - Submarine OST (EP) 9. O'Death - Outside 10. James Blake - James Blake
I'm probably forgetting a lot, and most of this ordering was random. King is Dead is definitely my #1 so far.
Edit: will have to re-listen listen to Destroyer. Didn't really feel it first time around. Zonoscope should probably be on my list too. Will listen to Panda Bear, WU LYF, and Man Man soon.
My first (Cut Copy) and second (Bon Iver) picks will be the same, but the rest of my list is going to be pretty different. Adele and Lady Gaga will definitely still be in my top 10, but I'm not sure about any of the others.
