Best Albums of 2010

A Listmania! list by Neil Pickering (United States)
 
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
1.  My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy by Kanye West
The list author says:
  "Six years later, Kanye is undoubtedly the most openly self-aware MC. And the music world should be grateful to have him. I know I am.

With his music and persona both marked by a flawed honesty, Kanye's man-myth dichotomy is at once modern and truly classic."
$11.25   Used & New from: $3.33
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (438 customer reviews) | 12 customer discussions

Contra
2.  Contra by Vampire Weekend
The list author says:
  "Another set of clever songs from the Ivy League Rockers. Contra finds the group expanding their afro pop and punk tendencies with other genres to successful results. Definitely one of the biggest names in indie rock right now and well deserved of it."
$9.99   Used & New from: $2.59

High Violet [Vinyl]
4.  High Violet [Vinyl] by The National
The list author says:
  "Music that sours from beautiful instrumentation and baritone singing. No other band is more exciting to listen to at the moment. Such raw emotion that the band brings every time they release an album, its difficult not get goosebumps while listening to it."
$19.94   Used & New from: $15.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (162 customer reviews) | 7 customer discussions

The Suburbs
5.  The Suburbs by Arcade Fire
The list author says:
  "Could quite be the Arcade Fire's most accessable album they've made. Each song epic and nicely combined with straight forward honest lyrics of Win Butler. On The Suburbs, the band strikes gold again solidifying them a spot to legendary status."
