2010 in retrospect
Okay, so last year around this time, I posted my 2010 AOTY list, and gave a reason for each album choice. Before I roll out this year’s year-end music related post, of which there will be four more, I wanted to give an updated list of my 2010 AOTYs. Some of the album changes are due to changes of taste and my general enjoyment of music evolving and others are due to me not having heard some albums until this year. I am just going to post a quick list, and not restate all my reasons. THOUGH, I’ll be honest. My main reason for posting this list is because I can’t believe I thought versaemerge made my third favorite album of last year. The original post is here if you want to check it out.
