Mixes By Year: 2010 Most Recommended Albums

2010 revisited.  Top 20 albums remain unchanged except for swapping in the great Australian psych-rock band Tame Impala’s “Innerspeaker” for the still really good “Plastic Beach” by Gorillaz.  2010 still really shines for me and I will say that I think it was an overall stronger year than 2011.  My five favorite albums- Kanye’s “MBDTF”, Deerhunter’s “Halcyon Digest”, Arcade Fire’s “The Suburbs”, the late LCD Soundsystem’s “This Is Happening” and the should be world conquering pop star Robyn’s “Body Talk” still sound just as good if not better than they did last year.  The great tracks in 2010 are seemingly endless.  I still had to cut ridiculously good stuff at volume 8 so eventually I’ll re-revisit 2010 and just keep going.

After a few years in the gutter rap music seemed back in 2010 and it still shows no signs of stopping.  Big Boi, Drake, Kanye & Rick Ross are still some of the music’s leading lights.  Looking very forward to the sophomore releases from Surfer Blood & Best Coast, the next Beach House record & the 3rd from Vampire Weekend all coming in 2012.
