Yes, I know it’s actually already 2011. But having spent the last week of the year on vacation and pretty much unplugged I didn’t take the time to post this before the New Year rolled around.
There’s a thousand and 1 different “best of lists” every year but, all the same, we around here still make our lists. In the past these lists would be just another discussion point among friends or something to be shared on Facebook or both. But this year, after a ridiculously good first year for this blog, we’re going to do things different and post these here for your reading pleasure.
Like the title says, this is part one. There are still lists to be posted by both Juan and Nick and those will be coming down the pike shortly.
So, without further delay, here is the my Best of 2010 list. First up, we’ll look at my take on what the best albums of the year were.
1 – Tim Barry “28th & Stonewall”
2 – Ryan Adams & The Cardinals “III/IV”
3 – I Can Lick any Sonofabitch in The House “The Sounds of Dying”
4 – Torche “Songs for Singles”
5 – Two Cow Garage “Sweet Saint Me”
6 – Black Tusk “Taste The Sin”
7 – Gaslight Anthem “American Slang”
8 – Coliseum “House with a Curse”
9 – Trap Them “Filth Rations”
10 – Drag The River “2010 Demons”
The National – High Violet, The Roots – How I Got Over, Big Boi – Sir Lucious Left Foot; Ballad of Chico Dusty, Daughters – Daughters, Minus The Bear – Omni, Fang Island – Fang Island
And, finally, just for the hell of it, here’s a quick list of 10, non-music, things from 2010 that were awesome in their own right.
