So I won’t bore you to tears with my tedious psycho babble on why these are my Top 10 Albums of 2010because frankly we all know you and I don’t have the time to write or read the reasons and I believe you really don’t care however I like to write lists and document; it’s a genetic thing so I’ll give you pictures with a small brief, how’s that sound?

Out of the shit load of music I purchased this year this is what made my top 10, it was freakin hard to narrow down so here goes…


1.

Kanye-West-My-Dark-Twisted-Fantasy-Album-Cover-Art_21


Kanye West- My Dark Twisted Beautiful Fantasy: Masterpiece! Yep Yeezy did it! Yeezy taught me. Let Yeezy teach you. Gather around children zip it listen.


2.

LCD-Soundsystem-This-Is-Happening-560x560


James Murphy I just want to hug you! Have you read the lyrics to ‘I can Change’? it makes me cry! Brilliant Brilliant Brilliant album.


3.

Best Coast 500x500


If you like Connie Francis, Patsy Cline, Shangri-La’s, Best Coasts- Crazy In Love picks up where they left off so very girly, full of little stories, It’s tops.


4.arcade fire the suburbs


Arcade Fire-The Suburbs, Superb! Hypnotic, broody, leaves you feeling heavy in a good way like a good book.


5.Warpaint_


Warpaint-The Fool, Beautiful! If you were to dive into the ocean and rest on the ocean floor this would be the soundtrack.


6.

GRINDERMAN2_album_PACKSHOT_500


Grinderman-Grinderman 2. Mischievious, Rowdy, Dirty, just the way I like it! The man is a genius.


7.
chemical_brothers_further_20100609


The Chemical Brothers-Further. Superb, immersive, melodic and dead danceable just like every other Chemicals album.


8.dum-dum-girls-i-will-be


Dum Dum Girls- I will Be. Think: Stooges, Jesus and Mary Chain, The Cramps. Awesome garage fuzz guitar rock, stoner girls in leather. I love that the production is raw. It shits all over Vivian Girls. Just saying.


9.

beach-house_teen-dream


Beach House-Teen Dream. It took me a long time to get into this album, in the end I was emotionally engaged its textural and full of dynamics, I can hear Stevie Nicks in her (Victoria Legrand) vocals. It’s definitely a grower.


10.zola jesus


Zola Jesus-Stridulum II, I fell in love with Zola one early morning while watching Rage. Gothic, dark, moody, Siouxsie Sioux vocals, she won me over that easy. It’s a brilliant brilliant album.


Honourable Mentions: Wavves- Post Acid, The Walkmen-Lisbon, Foals-Total Life Forever, MIA- Kala, arrr I’d better stop.

    LOVE your top 10 Kazz… some of my favs made it in there too :) … You really know how to capture the essence of an album in just a few sentences girl. You could do that as a weekly blog/tweet thing. I’d listen to ya

  • Kazz:
