2010 Year In Review
Last year I post my 2009 Year In Review, a list of my top songs released in 2009, in a timely manner before the first week of the new year was through. Unfortunately, this year due to a number of horrific computer issues that have at least seemed to have culminated in one of the fancy new MacBooks, and a residence connected to mass media exclusively through an 1980s-era boombox that seems to only pick up NPR (no complaints), my 2010 Year In Review is being posted just shy of March in the following year. My bad. Hopefully now, blogging will recommence in ernest, promise, scout's honor, stick a needle in my eye, and all that jazz. So without further ado, here are my top 20 albums from 2010 accompanied by my favorite song off the album.
