LivingEars 30 Favorite Albums of 2010

As I mentioned, I got burned out recently. But the list is something people ask for and care about and I like to read others so here it is. Simple and without explanation. I planned on writing about each of these but I don’t have the drive right now. I played them all a lot, I think they are all worth checking out, I suggest you buy or dl all of them and hope you discover something new.
