05.04.11 My Top 10 Releases Of 2010 (because I'm

My Top 10 Releases Of 2010 (because I'm Slow Like That)

Since I just joined, I thought I should make my obligatory first list. rAny thoughts/advice appreciated. Enjoy!
10Pierce The Veil
Selfish Machines


About as poppy as post-hardcore comes, Pierce the Veil make great improvement on their first album. Despite a few cliches and nothing tracks ('Stay Away From my Friends' springs to mind), this is a solid, catchy release.
9 Dangers
Messy, Isn't It?


My first experience of this album was 'Opposable' and what can I say, I was hooked from the first second. Whilst not as hard-hitting as their first release, this one is a keeper. Al Brown should write a book or something. Seriously
8Rabbit Junk
Project Nonagon


This is the first and (at this point in time) only industrial album that I've really enjoyed. Ranging from brutal ('Blood') to fun ('Handle Bars'), this is a great introduction for anyone who's looking for a little industrial in their music collection.
7Adebisi Shank
This Is The Second Album Of A Band Called...


International Dreambeat. Makes me want to dance. Thank you Ireland
622
Flux


Never has the phrase "Only in Norway" been more appropriate. This band produces a colourful debut which sounds like something between Muse and Lady Gaga. That doesn't even do them justice. Seriously, just look at this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpkQeiw-s9k
5Foxy Shazam
Foxy Shazam


Eric Nally's vocal stylings carry this album from a solid performance to a great one. While fans of their earlier material may dismiss this as "boring", new listeners will find a lot to enjoy in this release
4 United Nations
Nevermind the Bombings, Here's Your Six Figures


Whilst the band's members are shrouded in mystery, United Nation's music is anything but. Louder and Faster than their d?but album, United Nations come out with guns ablazing in this EP. Also, this was my gateway to Converge. Thank you Mr. Rickly. Again
3Letlive
Fake History


Say all you want about Glassjaw impersonations, this album is great. It rocks, it feels, it moves, it... It's just good okay?
2 Los Capitanes
Rest For the Wicked


Maybe I'm biased because this band is Australian like myself, or maybe because since I saw them live last month, but this band kicks a lot of ass. While they are most definitely a ska band, they blend so many other genres into this release that it's easy to see that these guys are something special.
1Trophy Scars
Darkness, Oh Hell


'Bad Luck' was one of my favourite 2009 releases, so when I listened to this bad boy and discovered that Trophy Scars had added more pianos, more horns and more variety into their sound, I realised I'd found something special. Can't wait for their next full-length.
