Top 10 Albums of 2010 - Inaugural Edition
Offered without explanation or apology... this is what I liked best.
10 Yeasayer - Odd Blood
9 Vampire Weekend - Contra
8 Arcade Fire - The Suburbs
7 LCD Soundsystem - This Is Happening
6 School Of Seven Bells - Disconnect From Desire
5 The High Violets - Cinema
4 The Gaslight Anthem - American Slang
3 The Naked And Famous - Passive Me, Aggressive You
2 Kids of 88 - Sugarpills
1 Fiawna Forte' - Transitus
Okay, a little explanation. These are the albums that I find myself going back to, time and again, because they never stop sounding fresh, exciting and amazing. I find myself hearing something new every time I listen, as the songs reveal a bit more of themselves - like a very sensual striptease. (TMI? Too bad.)
I'm very comfortable recommending these ten albums to any of you and they'll make lovely Christmas gifts for your musically inclined family and friends.
Of course, you can hear ALL of these artists on Egg Radio, so LISTEN!
(And tell a friend.)
