We’re approaching the end of 2010, so it’s time for anyone who writes about music to list what he or she liked best from this year. Despite the fact that it’s a heavily political and arbitrary exercise, the chance to use it as both a writing challenge and a way to wrap my head around the past year of music as I saw it, was too good an opportunity to pass up on.
So here’s how it’s going to work. Regular posts here will continue as per usual. However on top of that, the focus of the month, or at least pre Christmas is going to be in build up to my top 5 albums of the year. Ranking anymore than that seemed like a fairly arbitrary and pointless activity, so the rest of the years standouts shall be very honorable mentions, as they more than deserve to have something written about them. Plus there’ll be a few more random accolades along the way.
So enjoy, I hope the pieces aren’t too pretentious and would love to hear any feedback or opinions so comment away
BONUS - Total jam for you all. One of my favorites from this year.
