Episode 37 – Top 21 Albums of 2010 (Artwork – D. Hixon)

This is always a fun mix to make, and like every year, it’s a difficult one to piece together. After much deliberation, the below 21 albums are what made the cut, and they represent the albums I enjoyed the most in 2010, and from what I’ve seen from other lists thus far, I think this one may have some legs. Regardless, lemme know what I missed, or what you agree with, or what you never heard of until now, and may this serve as a soundtrack to close out your holiday season, as we wish the best for a prosperous 2011. Thanks for listening – Salud.
