Top 10 Albums of the 2010s that Will Most Likely Become Cult Classics

This is not what you think is the best album of the decade, but one you assume will be considered as the most popular of the decade retrospectively.

The Top TenXW

1My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - Kanye West

I'd like to ask if we can call this a cult classic if every music reviewer has already given it a 9-10 review and if its had great commercial success. - ArchAces

A cult favorite among prison inmates convicted of murder.

221 - Adele
3The Heist - Mackelmore and Ryan Lewis
4To Pimp a Butterfly - Kendrick Lamar

As great as MBDTF was, I voted for this because while it isn't the best album I've heard in years (Blackstar and maybe Skeleton Tree have topped it this year), it's the most important album I've heard in years. - WonkeyDude98

5Lemonade - Beyoncé

No, it's not exactly the next Bonnie Tyler or Kate Bush, but it's still Beyonce's best album. - Swellow

6If You're Reading This It's Too Late - Drake
71989 - Taylor Swift
8Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites - Skrillex

Considering I might be the only one who liked this, I doubt it - ProPanda

9The Marshall Mathers LP 2 - Eminem
10Dream With Me - Jackie Evancho

Or, it could mean that they are no longer in High School, and actually know how to write.

The CD's production by David "The Hitman" Foster, along with the iconic setlist, and the spectacular performances by her in the elaborate 1-hour T.V. special make this one the Jackie Evancho release that will endure for decades.

Actually I was the one adding the other Jackie Evancho album when creating the list. - Martin_Canine

The Contenders

11Songs From the Silver Screen - Jackie Evancho

A very good CD, but not nearly the same "degree of difficulty" as Dream With Me, and the movie-theme idea restricted the song choices, so is less likely to be as popular in the distant future.

12.5 the Gray Chapter - Slipknot
13Southern Family - Southern Family

Country is so underrated, and among country fans this WILL go down as a classic. - WonkeyDude98

14At the Edge of Time - Blind Guardian

Released in 2010, this album will not become popular because music is too complex and unusual for the pop culture but it's already a cult classic for the metal fans, with songs like Wheel Of Time, Sacred Worlds, Curse my Name, Tanelorn, Valkyries. - Metal_Treasure

15The Money Store - Death Grips
16Blonde - Frank Ocean
