SUGGEST THE BEST ART-ROCK albums of the Last 10 years?

?

I would prefer no mentions of Sufjan Stevens or Radiohead since I already have all their stuff.

However, if you love them so much and just want to talk about them, fine.

But, I'm looking to expand my pallet a bit in this area, and wanted some good suggestions.

?

Could name you a tonne of rock albums, but art-rock?? Isn't that just a critics term for self-indulgent pretentious bands who couldn't write a decent riff if their life depended on it?

Deerhoof - Friend Opportunity

This is one of my favorite albums ever... I'm trying to think of 9 other titles from the last decade that can compete.

Nightcrawler

It´s already 14 years old, buit make sure to check out "Six" by Mansun if you haven´t yet. One of the best art rock albums of the last 20 years.

Just like the sun, the rainbow children rise...
