Best & Worst Of Music 2010: Part 2

A Listmania! list by Michael Kerner "Michael Kerner" (Brooklyn, New York U.S.A.)
(HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (VINE VOICE)   
The list author says: "As you've seen in Part 1 of the list in Best & Worst Of Music 2010, there haven't really been strong albums, but good ones and some surprises. Here is part 2 of the list, which does continue to show some delivered songs and staples to call music its own, and others to say, why have I wasted my time on this junk? Here is why from Part 2."
Wake Up Everybody (Album Version)
1.  Wake Up Everybody (Album Version) by John Legend & The Roots feat. Common & Melanie Fiona
The list author says:
  "Best Collaboration: I loved Wake Up Everybody by John Legend & The Roots. Also having Melanie Fiona and Common along made a great cover song, feel better than its original. I really liked the song, and I hope there is more like this to wake up to."

Russian Roulette (Explicit Version) [Explicit]
2.  Russian Roulette (Explicit Version) [Explicit] by Rihanna
The list author says:
  "Worst Music Video: Rihanna's Russian Roulette was depressing. Just seeing someone too much in despair from being abused, killed the feeling of the song. It was so depressing."

Symphonicities
3.  Symphonicities by Sting
The list author says:
  "Best Album Cover: While I didn't like Sting's reworkings, but I love the simplicity cover of Symphonicities. It really was honestly a great Mondrian-made design only Sting could have on a album cover."
$10.88   Used & New from: $0.78

Pulse
4.  Pulse by Toni Braxton
The list author says:
  "Best R&B Album: I loved Toni Braxton's Pulse. While it wasn't definitive for her, it really had a lot of great songs to call her own, and it wasn't so yesterday."
$8.37   Used & New from: $1.98
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (93 customer reviews) | 5 customer discussions

The Script
5.  The Script by The Script
The list author says:
  "Best New Artist: I like what The Script had brought out into the mainstream. They really delivered with a nice mainstream hit on Breakeven, and it was well-appealing to move ahead."
$9.00   Used & New from: $1.95
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (106 customer reviews)

My World 2.0
6.  My World 2.0 by Justin Bieber
The list author says:
  "Worst Male Album: There sometimes can be too much of one act at one time. Justin Bieber might be appealing to all, but he really needs to find better songs to call his own. I didn't like My World 2.0."
$5.99   Used & New from: $0.01
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (188 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Pulse
7.  Pulse by Toni Braxton
The list author says:
  "Comeback Of The Year: Toni Braxton. While she has had some rough bumps in the road, her songs like Hands Tied really brought out her strongest pulse in music in years."

I Am...Sasha Fierce
8.  I Am...Sasha Fierce by Beyonce
The list author says:
  "Worst Collaboration Of The Year (tie): You know you're really in trouble when two singers have 2 bad collaborations of the year. That is the case with Beyonce' & Lady Gaga on Video Phone. The song was just awful. I think they need to find better partners the next time they sing something with someone more than just all in the name of the fame."
$5.99   Used & New from: $0.96

The Fame Monster [Deluxe Edition]
9.  The Fame Monster [Deluxe Edition] by Lady Gaga
The list author says:
  "Worst Collaboration of The Year (tie): I honestly hated Telephone from Lady Gaga & Beyonce'. It really was just as horrible as their other song Video Phone brought into the table. I think they need better phone to talk to someone especially on the telephone."
$14.88   Used & New from: $3.69
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (584 customer reviews) | 12 customer discussions

The Fame Monster
10.  The Fame Monster by Lady Gaga
The list author says:
  "Overexposed Artist Of The Year: Lady Gaga. There can be too much of an act, whether it is being too racy and raunchy, or beging too provocative. Lady Gaga has really felt more like "lady gag me with a crescent roll!""
$5.00   Used & New from: $0.01

Un-thinkable (I'm Ready)
11.  Un-thinkable (I'm Ready) by Alicia Keys
The list author says:
  "Song of The Year: I loved Alicia Keys Un-Thinkable. It really was the standout from The Element Of Freedom, and proved Alicia will always be ready when it comes to a great song."

I Look To You (Glee Cast Version)
12.  I Look To You (Glee Cast Version) by Glee Cast
The list author says:
  "Worst Cover Song: Glee has done a lot of bad covers, but they've done honestly the worst cover of a Whitney Houston song ever. They really took last year's swan from Whitney with I Look To You, and turned it into a scary black crow."

The Signature Box
13.  The Signature Box by John Lennon
The list author says:
  "Artist Of The Year: John Lennon. Seeing his catalog to a new audience, and his music broadly shared more than ever. On what would've been the year of his 70th birthday, and the 30th anniversary of his trgaic death, John is still here with us all, deeper than he had imagined."
$115.41   Used & New from: $80.99

Power To The People: The Hits
14.  Power To The People: The Hits by John Lennon
The list author says:
  "Best Greatest Hits Album: While Power To The People wasn't the best reflection of John Lennon, it still was a good and simple straight-forward reflection of why he was watching the wheels of life, and that is purely more than instant karma."
$11.88   Used & New from: $0.01
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions

How Will I Know (Acappella)
15.  How Will I Know (Acappella) by Whitney Houston
The list author says:
  "Best Remixed Song: Just the simplicity of hearing Whitney's melody alone on How Will I Know shows how powerful she made a song her own. I really liked this remix of the song, and how rare remixes can be just as good as the original."
$0.99

Not Afraid
16.  Not Afraid by Eminem
The list author says:
  "Best Rap Song: I like Eminem's Not Afraid. It really is his best rap song in years, and maybe not being afraid to deeply say the best rap of his life. Maybe Eminem not only grew up, but strong enough to say he is not afraid to make a great song. I hope there are more from him like this to come from Slim Shady himself."
