My Favorite 25 Albums of 2010: 25 – 11

The album, unlike the single, is a complete offering. It’s not just verse, chorus, verse, chorus, interlude, chorus, outro. It’s not one lone musical idea. It’s an entire pallet of ideas. It’s an opera, a play, a novel. The album can be one of the greatest pieces of art, and when properly done, it’s magical.

And so, here are my favorite albums of 2010 (part 1):

  1. I Heart the musics you reveal to me.

  2. I like your snowflakes.

  3. That Tron soundtrack starts off sounding like The Dark Kinght/Batman Begins score and ends off sounding like 1989 Batman Score. Weird.

    Also, I hope Eric Hutchinson and/or Sara Bareilles make your list.
