|Top 20 Of 10|
These are not the best albums I listened to this year but...
A Sufi and a Killer
Simultaneously being amusing and entertaining the backing tracks are
undeniable. Thanks to silentpotato for this rec.
A generic label I'll use a lot in this list... fun, upbeat and entertaining.
I'm surprised this hasn't made it onto more 2010 lists although it did come
out all the way back in January.
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
I really can't stop myself from saying... this just isn't as good as you think it
is. It is however good enough to be highlighted for the year. I 3'd the
fucker but I can admit that it is a damn good album and simply not to my
I'm an old school Deftones fan so there was no way this wasn't making my
Here we go again... fun, upbeat and entertaining. That being said I should
probably have put it at 18.
|14||Matt and Kim|
Fun, upbeat and entertaining: this album is infectiously upbeat as we have
come to expect from this couple.
|13||Nine Inch Nails|
Pretty Hate Machine: 2010 Remaster
My favorite surprise of 2010.
|12||Toro Y Moi|
Causers of This
Smooth and mellow just pop it in and chill with your substance of choice.
mc chris Goes to Hell
With three songs named after Star Wars bounty hunters on this album
alone he is my favorite Nerd-Core artist and this is by far his cleanest album
with the best production level.
|10||The Gaslight Anthem|
Not as good as "59 Sound" still far better than most the releases this year.
|9|| ||Ray Lamontagne|
God Willin' & The Creek Don't Rise
Yet another lack luster album from someone who has given us better. It is
however a good album in its own right and the first album he has produced
It's a great album that is upbeat and I'm not sure were all the hate comes
from. The one complaint I might have is that it is more of the same.
Death to False Metal
Completely out of left field I never would have known of its existence if it
wasn't for CasualListen's review. It's filled with music they should have
been releasing over the last few years.
Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty
Great album: nuff said.
If BigHans hadn't been so disappointed in it I never would have known it
had come out. It has the best production value of his catalog but it is classic
|4||Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse|
Dark Night of the Soul
Great album with a great story. Before the legal dispute was resolved you
could order the Booklet and it would come with a blank CD. The package
would be labeled "For legal Reasons, enclosed CD-R contains no music. Use
it as you will.". Ready for release in 2009 but the official date is July 12,
Danger Mouse and James Mercer need I say more?
|2||The Black Keys|
I'm a long time Black Keys fan. Brothers is not there best album but it is a
After listening to this album I knew it would be my number one for the year.
