Best Albums of 2010


The Top TenXW

1O Holy Night - Jackie Evancho

Fantastic album by a very talented young lady.

The first evidence of a promising and commercially successful future for the astonishing young singer.

Ended up being the best-selling CD by a debut artist in 2010, and was the 10th best selling CD of the entire year overall, peaking at #2 on the Billboard charts, and went Platinum.

I love Jackie Evancho, her voice is so wonderful. - Catacorn

2My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - Kanye West

Possibly one of the greatest albums of all time, let alone 2010. And so much better than Taylor Swift and Jonas Brothers.. - InsertNameHere

Recovery is good, but this is Kayne's best album to date. - SwagFlicks

Dark, twister, beautiful... fantastic.

Lost In The World was beautiful - JaysTop10List

3Recovery - Eminem

Good album but still lacking that slim shady humour

Great album from my man Em! This one really helps on the workouts, and the punch lines and rhymes are great. The beats are ok but there are enough great beats to make up for the bland ones

4A Thousand Suns - Linkin Park

Great and criminally underrated LP album - still catchy, still intriguing, still awesome. Can't believe trashy Kanye West is over Linkin Park. There's something wrong with this world - Magnolia

Best Sounded Album of Linkin Park! The way they experimented with the song is simply great! There won't be any other album like this one! Linkin Park Forever!

Brilliant album - really underrated :L hope that it gets more appreciation in the future

5The Suburbs - Arcade Fire

An unbelievably amazing album. None of the other albums on this list even compare to the suburbs! Definitely deserved best album grammy.

6Nightmare - Avenged SevenfoldV2 Comments
7Brothers - The Black Keys
8Plastic Beach - Gorillaz

LOVE THIS ALBUM. For the most have Gorillaz made no song that sounds like another song they have made. This album has variations of singing, background music, artist (that plays different types of music) and a good flow. Like a relaxing in a cold dark day in the car nor going on a calm then heavy fishing trip.

This one of the best albums of gorillaz, my favorite songs of this album is:Rhinestone eyes, On melancholy Hill, Stylo, Some kind of nature

Love each song in this album! White Flag, Empire Ants, On Melancholy Hill and Some Kind Of Nature are great songs.

My favorite gorillaz album!

10Band of Joy - Robert Plant

The Contenders

11Fearless - Taylor Swift

Amazing album! Best by Taylor so far! All the songs really touch your heart! - jman411

Great Lyrics.. touches your heart.. makes you feel like your own story

12Asylum - Disturbed
13The Guitar Song - Jamey Johnson
14Raw - Hopsin

A real hard hitting album

15High Violet - The National
16The Adventures of Bobby Ray - B.o.B
17No Apologies - Trapt
18Umbrella - Rihanna
19The Union - Elton John & Leon Russell

Two rock giants, one largely forgotten, rekindle a friendship and make music that ranks with their best. Producer T Bone Burnett delivers his most spectacular production in memory, filled with shining steel guitar, chortling brass and gospel-time choirs - GuitarZero

Come on, Kanye West ahead of a combination of Elton and Leon? Great tracks on this album, including the upbeat "Hey Ahab. " Piano at it's finest. - CaptainFantastic

20Doo - Wops & Hooligans - Bruno Mars
