Sorry for such a cryptic title but "best of" seems so played out, also these albums aren't necessarily the best albums that came out this year, in fact I think some albums I don't mention are just as good if not better than what is to follow but I think these records haven't gotten the recognition they deserve. This is in no meaningful order other than the way I placed them since my tastes and mood are in constant flux. Also I don't mean this as a end all be all "best albums" list, these are just my personal favorite 2010 records as of right now, these few minutes.
