2010 Favorites

This is meant entirely as a record of what I was listening to at this point in time, but if for some weird reason you care what music I like, enjoy. Also, just to be clear, all of these are albums and songs I like a lot. I left off stuff (like LCD Soundsystem’s This Is Happening) that just didn’t work for me at all.

One thought on “2010 Favorites

  1. I’d have put “This is Happening” at #1. Seeing them live has just a little to do with it. But, I’m totally with you on most of those albums, especially “Dark Fantasy,” “Sit Down, Man,” and “The Suburbs.”
