List of best albums of all genres of the 2010s decade.

The Top Ten

1 Awakening - Jackie Evancho

This is a winner! - BobG

How about the "Think Of Me" sample that has been pre-released?
She is doing amazing new things with her voice!

Rains of Castamere is dark and somber, and beautifully sung.

The most beautiful voice and person

2 To Pimp a Butterfly - Kendrick Lamar

Definitely one of the most influential albums of recent hip hop's AND music's history. Kendrick definitely set the bar so high on this one that everyone else is better off skydiving (anyone get the reference? )

This should be number one. No contest. - SwagFlicks

One of the most important albums ever made

3 Dream With Me - Jackie Evancho

Jackie's debut full studio album produced by David Foster, and showcased in her first of three PBS specials "Dream With Me - In concert", with David Foster accompanying and hosting.

The Jackie Evancho Effect is real! It started with this album. So you're minding your own business, channel surfing, when WHAM! A PBS Special and there's this little slip of a thing spotlighted in a huge outdoor theater. But as soon as you hear her voice, you're hit with choked throat, teary eyed, jaw dropped; and at the end of every song you involuntarily shake your head in utter disbelief at what you just experienced! And it has only a little to do with her size and age. It's just that she sings better than you have ever heard anyone sing! Honest!

"Dream With Me - In Concert" is available on CD, DVD, Blu-ray, and as a high-definition video download on iTunes.

4 Two Hearts - Jackie Evancho

You know an album is good when you find your humming many of the songs, and hearing the singer in your head. It's all good! This is a musical variety smorgasbord. Something for everyone. It's a showcase for a Platinum and multi Gold Album Award Winner. If you haven't heard it, you're an incomplete human being!

This latest (2017) release is a two-disc album that showcases the versatility of Jackie's voice - classical, sacred, pop, rock - as well as her incredible song-writing skills. A real eye-opener by this tireless teen wunderkind. - BobG

awesome

5 Atrocity Exhibition - Danny Brown

Atrocity Exhibition is one of the most abstract rap albums ever. From the beats to Danny's insane voice and flow this album deserves to be in the top 5 this decade. The songs "Downward Spiral" and "Ain't It Funny" are mind blowing.

6 Good Kid: M.A.A.D City - Kendrick Lamar

The big break of the next king of Rap

What?
62?!?!?!
And All The Crapy Pop Artists In The Top 20?
Where's The Justice? And More I'm Importantly Where Are The Rap, Rock, Real R&B And Real Pop Fans? Seriously The Only Albums That Deserve To Be In The Top 10 Are "21" And "Mylo Xyloto".

I Myself Like Green Day But The Trilogy Sucked Hard And Yet One Of Them Made The Top 20?
Night Vision Is An Album That Deserves To Be In The Top 10 And Yet It's 28?
To Pimp A Butterfly Is 52? Why? That's Also Top 10 Material.
The King Of Limbs Although Not Being Radioheads Best It's Still Better Than Everything By All The Stupid Mainstream Artists.
And That Brings Me To This. Truly A Work Of Art.Kendrick Nailed The Whole Album. But Yet It's 62?

7 My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - Kanye West

I can't even really describe why it's so good. There is that "special something" about it. The lyrics are deep and the beats are even deeper. Very self-deprecating and a great musical exploration by the most progressive rap artist of the past decade.

Why is this album on 8? Come on this should at least be on the top 3!

8 1989 - Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift has rocked the world with her album '1989' with songs such as Shake It Off and Blank Space.

9 How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful - Florence + the Machine
10 Songs from the Sliver Screen - Jackie Evancho

Along with her companion PBS Great Performances concert special "Music Of The Movies".

This should be "Songs from the SILVER Screen." But a rose by any name would smell just as sweet. - BobG

The Newcomers

? Bloom - Beach House
? St. Vincent - St. Vincent

The Contenders

11 Beyoncé - Beyoncé
12 Rebel Heart - Madonna
13 Strange Mercy - St. Vincent
14 Mylo Xyloto - Coldplay

The songs on this album are just fantastic. Also, I LOVE the name of the album. It looks and sound so cool... Mylo Xyloto... How awesome that title is.
