|Top 10 Of 2010|
Gonna keep it short and sweet, no fucking around with a 100 album list for me.
|10||Dark Time Sunshine|
Best hip hop release of the year. Highlight is definitely the production, really unique.
This album may not have made the list if not for the fact that it was so criminally overlooked. Ihsahn does something great here, but I guess cause his last 2 albums sucked no one checked this out. While this album has its flaws, most notably seeming a little forced at its heaviest moments, it features some great composition, with strong transitions, and great melodies. I loved the way the sax was integrated on this album as well, it just takes the biggest moments and makes them even bigger. Another thing that was cool about this album was to see Ihsahn move away from his neoclassical and avant garde tendencies and embrace his love of 70's prog and jazz.
|8||The Tallest Man on Earth |
The Wild Hunt
I bought into the Sputnik hype train on this one and damn was it worth it.
Deftones are the band that got me into heavier music over a decade ago and it's great to see they're showing no signs of slowing down.
This isn't as good as The Blue Notebooks but simpler and more emotionally moving.
My Father will Guide me up a Rope to the Sky
I wasn't sure what to expect from a Swans comeback, but Michael Gira really delivers on this one. Not their best work but it still rules.
|4||Gnaw Their Tongues|
L Arrivee de la Terne Mort Triomphante
Atmosphere atmosphere atmosphere
Everything that needs to be said about this album has already been said.
DsO return with a more focused, less pretentious, and somewhat more accessible album than their last few offerings, resulting in their best work to date IMO.
We're Here Because We're Here
Anathema reinvent themselves as an atmospheric rock band and the result is pure awesome.
|Can't get the Anathema artwork to show up for some reason.|
|when you edit your list, everything with an apostrophe gets raped.|
|Satellite is correct. Good list.|
|Makes sense, thanks guys|
|Good list. Did you check out the new Enslaved? I thought it was a lot better than Paracletus, tbh.|
|ah that's why the Dangers album wouldn't show up on mine. I'm getting 2 now. Good list, I kinda forgot to put High Violet on mine. Oh well.|
|sick list, what did you think of the new enslaved?|
|yeah i didn't really like the new enslaved that much, it was good but not great. the actual BM riffing seemed forced and there wasn't much in the way of atmosphere. I really preferred Ruun and Isa to Vertebrae and the new one|
