Favorite Albums Of 2010

Welp, another year is basically in the books and it seems the longer that I run this blog, the greater amount of music I seem to obtain. Not a bad thing by any means, but it is getting harder to listen to everything. Below is a list of my Favorite Albums Of 2010, as well as some Honorable Mentions. Again, it's getting harder to give everything the "proper" amount of listens, especially when you're initially attached to one, more than the other. However, the great thing about music is you can listen whenever you want and you never know when an album will eventually affect you. Please feel free to leave any comments/thoughts and hopefully you're all having a lovely Christmas.
