2010 was a great year for music, and a pleasant and exciting year to be writing about it . The sheer plethora of great releases made the idea of attempting to summarize the year scary. Going through our favorite albums this year was almost nostalgic because so many worthwhile albums were put out this year, and even summer albums feel kind of old. I guess we came to the conclusion that the best albums were the ones that we are still listening to. These 10 albums are all consistently great and are all timeless in their own respective ways. Happy New Years, and thank you so much for reading and supporting us (The Islander).
