Best Albums of 2010


The Top Ten

1 My 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

Just one of the best albums of ALL TIME. A masterpiece. Kanye West just proved on this album he is a musical genius.

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

Best album of the decade.

2 O 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.

Hmm, all these thumbs up on eerily similar comments, then 1/6th of those thumbs up on an established user's comment.

Methinks what occurred was a bot-plug by someone close to this girl, whether she knows the person or not. - Satire

3 Recovery - 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

2nd best Eminem album - Ajkloth

Then whats the best?

4 A 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

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

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!

Linkin park albums tend to be very underrated just like this one. Its genius

5 The 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.

6 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

This Is just a unforgetable album after Deat THE REV

2010 may be a sh*t year for music but I love nightmare

And I'm also gonna defend a thousand suns I may not like it too much because of the electronic pop but it still has rock which makes it special and chesters vocals still kick ass

7 This is Happening - LCD Soundsystem

This is happening.

8 Plastic 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!
