danbird’s Top 40 Albums of 2010

It’s that time of the year again. What a year it’s been. I normally do an end-of-the-year list with only 30 bands, but I’ve had to up it to 40 this year. There’s been so much good music that’s come out this time around. This year was particularly hard to choose a top album. Really any of my top 5 could have been my number one. Here they are, starting with the old man and his electric guitar……
