Top Albums of 2010..

I’ve toyed with this SO much.. I’m never going to get it perfect, as there are still so many amazing records out there that I haven’t managed to hear or give a full enough listen to with me working full time outside of the radio/music industry.

Whilst I’d love to give all of these albums another full listen to help me with the decision, time doesn’t permit me presently. So for my sins, here it is.. my TOP ALBUMS OF 2010.  Make of it what you will and inform your christmas lists accordingly 😉

    Great list Shell, of which i agree with and own many of them. Never mind these bands, you’re been my find of 2010, without your Twitter/Blog posts my musical knowledge would be all the poorer for it. Keep up the fantastic work.
