The Top Albums Of 2010

A Listmania! list by Simon Bristol "SR1983" (Bristol, UK)
 
Good Things
1.  Good Things by Aloe Blacc
The list author says:
  "Politically shrewd, soulful and forward looking, Blacc paints a picture of America 2010. This is Blaccs moment and he glances toward Gil Scott Heron & Bill Withers. Featuring I Need A Dollar, big hit"
8.60   Used & New from: 1.49
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (63 customer reviews)

SPECIAL KIND OF FOOL
2.  SPECIAL KIND OF FOOL by Ty
The list author says:
  "Possibly Ty's best album yet, and his debut on BBE this could be hiphop album of the year. Lyrically sharp, funky and as ever with Mr Chikoke- personal"
11.28   Used & New from: 4.30
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

TSOL
3.  TSOL by Shad
The list author says:
  "A stellar album from one of Canada's finest up and coming hiphop artists, TSOL has Christian roots lyrically but boy is this record funky. If you like Pharcyde, check this"
12.57   Used & New from: 4.39

I Learned the Hard Way
4.  I Learned the Hard Way by Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings
The list author says:
  "She makes follow up albums seem easy and seems to get better with age, but this record is too catchy to put down,  12 very well written songs, accompanied with knockout funk flair by the dap-kings"
7.73   Used & New from: 5.32
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Harper Simon
5.  Harper Simon by Harper Simon
The list author says:
  "Always difficult to be in your dad's shadow, but Harper's album proves he can stand on his own two just fine (even if his dad did co-write a couple). One of the best debuts you're likely to hear"
9.72   Used & New from: 2.95
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (32 customer reviews)

Good Evening
6.  Good Evening by Nite Jewel
The list author says:
  "Released in 2009, but can you date it? Lo-fi 80's synth pop which looks towards Kraftwerk. Recorded in a bedroom and all analogue,  dark & deep but has some tunes to boot"
9.75   Used & New from: 3.00
2.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Black Sands
7.  Black Sands by Bonobo
The list author says:
  "Four albums in and Simon Green still has an ability to surprise and delight. In Black Sands he has created a beat record influenced by the contemporary and the oriental"
7.85   Used & New from: 5.43
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews)

Lazarus
8.  Lazarus by Travie McCoy
The list author says:
  "This isn't me going all commercial, but this is an excellent pre-party album, irresistably catchy (unfortunately). And Billionarrie says something about modern society"
6.50   Used & New from: 0.49
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Foreign Landscapes
9.  Foreign Landscapes by Hauschka
The list author says:
  "Pretty much Man With A Movie Camera 'Part 2'. The German born producer eloquently paints intricate and often moodsetting glacial soundscapes."
10.99   Used & New from: 6.68
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

The Hundred in the Hands
10.  The Hundred in the Hands by The Hundred in the Hands
The list author says:
  "Very under appreciated album, you'll like that if you were a fan last year of Ladyhawkes album. The track Pigeons stands miles ahead"
9.46   Used & New from: 1.99
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)
