I never listen to as many albums as I'd like, but I definitely found some favorites in 2010. Check them out below, and if any are new to you, I recommend giving them a listen.

“Our Riotous Defects” is one of my favorite tracks on the album, have a listen below.

And in addition to these 2010 releases, there were a few albums that were released prior to 2010 that were on constant rotation this year.

Mumford & Son's Sigh No More (09)

I was definitely a fan of this album last year, but I completely fell IN LOVE with it this year. Absolutely a favorite. If for some reason you have yet to discover Mumford & Sons, do yourself a favor and check out "The Cave" below. Awesomeness.

!!!'s Louden Up Now (04)

Just got this album this year, and I LOVE it. Especially "Pardon My Freedom." Enjoy!

Definitely late to this train, but super glad I finally caught up. Great album! LOVE "40 Day Dream." Love.
