Here are my favorite albums of 2010. In all cases, these are the albums I spent the most time with. Sure most of these are on other lists as well, and many of you are hip to how good the Kanye, Big Boi and Deerhunter albums are, but go ahead and spend a little time with the White Denim album. The White Denim album is hosted on their website and fans can download and contribute an amount of their choice. It is a great, great record that should not be overlooked. The No Age and Abe Vigoda albums both feature two bands transitioning from their punk roots to more of a shoegazey, layered sound. In both cases, they absolutely nailed it and have released the best records of each band’s career.
Without further adieu, here is my list. Enjoy, and have a safe and fun holiday season.

great list, man. i’m still trying to digest kanye. there are parts that are genius and other parts that are self indulgent kanye bullshit.
my only objection: you forgot “brothers” by the black keys.
Excellent post. My only suggested inclusion: Blitzen Trapper, ‘Detroyer of the Void’
