2010-2019: A Retrospective

By no means a 'GREATEST ALBUMS OF THE DECADE' list, but simply the soundtrack to my 20's - a bunch of records released in the past decade I listened to a lot, many which I could listen to now and pinpoint where I was at in my life at the time I first got into it. Some of this I still jam regularly, some almost never, but all of it, at some point, felt important. List is in no particular order.
