Nostalgia: 2010

Have you ever found yourself looking back at a particular moment in time for no reason? You'd think if I were to reminisce it would be to last fall, the first ever with my future fiancee, but instead I've been flashing back to 3 years ago and I don't know why. I was stuck in a dead-end grocery store job slicing lunch meat, but I still lived near all my college friends. We'd go out all the time, get drunk, go bowling, talk to girls, etc. I had a crush on an engaged girl at the time and she liked me too, we'd hang out a couple times a week and it was probably the low point of my life morally. I didn't do anything with her, but it's still obviously wrong just on mere principle. I was a sputnik social butterfly, coming into my own as a contributor and aspiring staff. I remember writing like 3-5 reviews a week for a long stretch of time, and it wasn't one of those things where I was trying to notch 100 reviews to gain status I just enjoyed it a lot. I loved sparking conversations about albums that interested me at the time, and having other users critique my viewpoints. I wish I still had that same zest for the reviewing life, but being an adult with an adult job hit me very fast. I know I've heard some very good albums this year, but I haven't had any time to dig up unknown artists...Justin Timberlake will probably be in my top 10 of the year, just sayin'. Any recs? Below are 10 great albums from 2010 that I've been spinning to fuel the memories.
