The Best Albums of 2010 (#45-#55)

It's that time of the year again.  Time for the "Best of" lists!  It's the time for all us music bloggers to take all the countless hours of listening to music and pour it through our collective strainers.  But don't take our word for's time for your opinions, too.

I want all of you to send me your 20 best albums of 2010. The only rule is that the album had to be released in 2010.  It could be any album from any aritist in any genre.  I just want to know your favorites.  I will then tally everyone's lists into a mega-master list of 111 albums.  If you can't think of 20...then send 10...or just 5.  And if you only like 1 album.  That's okay, too...just send that.

Just post your favorites in the comment section.  Or PM me.  Thanks...and keep listening.

Here are the best albums of 2010 (#45-55):

45. Jimmy Eat World – Invented

46. Kings of Leon – Come Around Sundown
47. Darkstar – North
48. O. Children – O. Children

I can't even name 20 albums this year :(

Chris said...

so, is there a problem with people not be able to log into your .com site with wordpress to post comments? cause i know i can never log in and it would seem that there aren't any comments on there. i have a wordpress account which works fine on the wordpress site but never on your .com, its a strange problem.

I know it's a long shot but I hope Yeasayer makes the list.
I suspect Beach House WILL.

But Contra? I was so underwhelmed...

I was having spamming problems with the other site. I'm leaving it up as a back-up. I would get anywhere between 150-300 spam comments a day and it was getting way too time consuming to constanly have to sift through them all.

Chris said...

whoa, that is an insane amount of spam.

Chris said...

also i just realized i posted the wrong list of mine,
i meant to include devo's "something for everybody"

The Suburbs by Arcade Fire
Teenage Fantasy by Secret & Whisper
Of The Blue Colour of the Sky by Ok Go
The Beginning by Black Eyed Peas
