Best 2010s Albums That Won a Grammy for Album of the Year

The Top Ten
1 Random Access Memories - Daft Punk

I agree, this album was great. Also, even if the 2010s Album of the Year winners weren't necessarily the best, would you argue if I said they seem to make way more sense overall than the 2000s winners?

As much as I enjoyed both Red and GKMC, this is the album that needed to win, both in terms of the artist's relevance and the quality of the album.

2 21 - Adele

I just listened to this album (I don't listen to many albums) and, despite its flaws, the biggest probably being a lack of variance, I really liked it. The amazing thing I realized, though, is that I actually already knew all but 2 of the songs.

Basically, the most successful album of the decade. It might not be the best one from the winners, but it is still an iconic one and also the best Adele album to date.

3 The Suburbs - Arcade Fire

The perfect choice for that year. Too bad Funeral didn't get one.

Probably the most surprising one from the list, especially compared to how successful the other nominees were (Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Eminem).

4 24k Magic - Bruno Mars

Despite not being as good as the other nominees (Lorde, especially), I still enjoy this album. The 2018 nominees were actually really good, to be honest.

5 25 - Adele
6 Golden Hour - Kacey Musgraves

It's really good, but I think Dirty Computer is slightly better. Most of the songs are just a little more memorable.

7 1989 - Taylor Swift

It has some truly amazing pop songs, but I guess it won't necessarily have that great a cultural impact. Of course, it was also pretty uneven.

Not a bad choice and arguably the best Taylor Swift album, but it was nominated alongside TPAB by Kendrick Lamar, which was superior in every way.

8 When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? - Billie Eilish

"Please don't be me" - Billie Eilish. Honestly, I'm much more worried about putting too much pressure on Billie Eilish at such a young age than the thought that she maybe doesn't deserve the recognition. Hell, I would say this album is better than "Father of the Bride" and "NFR."

Not a bad album, but Lana Del Rey, Vampire Weekend, and Tyler the Creator (which wasn't even nominated) deserved the award way more than her. This only makes it more obvious how desperate the music industry is to push Billie Eilish down everyone's throat.

9 Morning Phase - Beck
10 Babel - Mumford & Sons
