Top 10 albums of 2010

Published: Monday, Jan. 10 2011 1:16 p.m. MST

I'm always hesitant to label any year as a "good" or "bad" year for music, but if you couldn’t find anything to love in 2010, you simply weren’t paying attention. From mainstream pop to alternative rock to traditional gospel, it seemed as if every possible genre was represented this year by more than a few excellent albums. Personal preferences and limited space exclude many notable releases from any top 10 list, so it would be difficult to argue that these albums are the absolute best 2010 had to offer. However, even this small selection should help provide an idea of the wealth of great music released over the past 12 months.

Interesting off-the-beaten-path list. Since this is the desnews, I would expect all this music to be family friendly, right? No Katy Perry or Eminen or Kanye.

Who is this guy? What credibility does he bring? Without context, this list means nothing and after figuring he isn't the home inspector on Google I found the identical list elsewhere.

A critic isn't somebody to be agreed with constantly but somebody to gauge taste by after a consistent history of comparisons. So while I may not have the same taste, I can gauge my taste by the critics but throwing people up with their list provides no context or basis for me to know anything. In this case, I have no idea what any of this means unless I already know the music myself.
