Top 10: Albums of 2010

2010 has been a fantastic year for music, band old and new have released absolutely stunning albums. That has only made the job of choosing a top 10 much harder. But here’s my attempt.

10.
Dimmu Borgir – Abrahadabra
This album is epic ( and that’s the correct use of the word.)
Huge sounding orchestrations mixed with awesome black metal riffs, Dimmu Borgir at their very best.

9.
Murderdolls – Women and Children Last
Joey and Wednesday resurrected the Murderdolls this year, and released the follow up to Beyond The Valley…
Check out the full review here.

8.
Exodus – Exhibit B: The Human Condition
The only bad thing about this album, is the fact it is way too long. But there’s a reason I gave it 10/10 when it was released… It’s fantastic.

7.
Bring Me The Horizon – There is a Hell, Believe Me I’ve Seen It, There is a Heaven, Let’s Keep It A Secret
BMTH expanded their sound even further with their ridiculously titled new album. An album so packed full of great songs, that is is causing even the most determined BMTH-haters to re-evaluate their opinion of the band. Check the review here.

6.
Your Demise – The Kids We Used To Be
One of the best young bands in Britain, Your Demise released their second album this year. A new singer and a more developed sound ensured this album would be one of the best to come out of the UK hardcore scene this year.

5.
Avenged Sevenfold – Nightmare
A7X paid tribute to their fallen brother with this 10/10 album. Check out the full review here.

4.
Bullet For My Valentine – Fever
Fever is their best album yet, expect to see these guys headlining festivals in the next few years. Check the review here.

3.
Cancer Bats – Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones
Your missing out if you haven’t checked this album out. Check out the review here.

2.
The Gaslight Anthem – American Slang
The perfect album? Almost. The Gaslight Anthem released this gem of an album earlier this year, not just one of the best albums of 2010, but one of the best albums I’ve ever heard.

1.
Lower Than Atlantis – Far Q
For me, there was no question about what album would get number one, as soon as I heard Far Q I knew it was something special.
There is not a bad track on it, and Mike Duce’s lyrics are fantastic.
Big things are on the horizon for this band.

Honourable mentions:
Letlive – Fake History
A Day To Remember – What Separated Me From You
Alter Bridge – ABIII
Parkway Drive – Deep Blue
Ozzy Osbourne – Scream

  1. […] last release, Far Q was a stunning record, so much so that it topped this sites list of the best albums of 2010, so, the question on everyone’s mind is: How does World Record as good it’s […]
