I had a short ~150 word review/blurb for about half the albums on this list. Unfortunately, my power went out and Microsoft Word didn't auto-recover my document for some odd reason. I'm not motivated enough to write all those again so instead, I wrote a simple list. 2011 albums have been leaking and releasing so I feel like it's reasonable to hurry up and get this list done quickly. I guess I'll have to wait until 2011 for an extensively written end of the year list.
2010 was the first year I tried to listen to a lot of music - I officially moved out of my absolutepunk.net phase in the fall of 2009. However, 2010 was also a tricky year in music because no album truly stuck with me for a long time. Therefore, there is no ranking system in this list. This list is in order of release date. Listing the albums in order of release date helps me remember when i listened to the album and also helps me associate those albums with memories/events around that time.
