Favorite Albums of 2010!

A Listmania! list by John Crotty (New York, N.Y. USA)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "2010 was a good year in music IF you took the time to seek out the better music. From the rock sounds of Kid Rock, Lifehouse, Melissa Etheridge, The Plain White T's & Rooney to the southern rock of The Zac Brown Band, Dierks Bentley, Court Yard Hounds & Jessica Harp, throw into the mix such long established acts such as The Doobie Brothers, Peter Wolf, John Mellencamp & Tom Petty & you have a pretty good year in music!!!"
You Get What You Give
1.  You Get What You Give by Zac Brown Band
The list author says:
  "My choice for Album of the Year. Includes my favorite song of 2010: As She's Walking Away. I like this collection a bit more than their 2008 release The Foundation. Unfamiliar with the sound of the ZBB? Think a combination of The Grateful Dead, The Band & The Allman Brothers. Also includes the hit "Colder Weather"."
$5.00   Used & New from: $2.49

Born Free
2.  Born Free by Kid Rock
The list author says:
  "The Kid Rock 8th studio album, Born Free, was produced by Rick Rubin. The album was recorded with a cast of musicians including Heartbreaker Benmont Tench & Red Hot Chili Pepper Chad Smith. There are collaborations with Bob Seger, Sheryl Crow and Zac Brown. Kid Rock and Rick Rubin have created a great American classic rock record that channels heavily the aforementioned Seger."
$9.00   Used & New from: $2.20

Smoke & Mirrors
3.  Smoke & Mirrors by Lifehouse
The list author says:
  "Ever-so-slightly beats out Melissa Etheridge as my third favorite album of 2010. Includes the hits Halfway Gone & All In. Lifehouse are now coming into their own on their fifth studio album...look for them to become more popular in the years ahead. The band is Jason Wade: Singer/songwriter/guitarist/piano, Ricky Woolstenhulme Jr: Drums, Bryce Soderberg: Bass & Ben Carey: Guitar."

Fearless Love
4.  Fearless Love by Melissa Etheridge
The list author says:
  "Fearless Love expands on the multiple strengths that have made Etheridge one of the major figures in rock. It follows her revealing 2007 set The Awakening with a rousing tone both tough and tender."

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (82 customer reviews)

Wonders of the Younger
5.  Wonders of the Younger by Plain White T's
The list author says:
  "Sounding VERY Beatlesque (this album reminds me of a cross between the Beatles' Revolver & Magical Mystery Tour) & phychedelic the PWT's deliver their best album to date. The T's have found a higher level with this music & I hope they only keep going in this direction on future discs."
$10.00   Used & New from: $2.39
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (28 customer reviews)

Up on the Ridge

Court Yard Hounds
7.  Court Yard Hounds by Court Yard Hounds
The list author says:
  "Not quite Dixie Chicks but a great substitute (2/3 of the DCs is better than none!). This album would have been a great follow-up to the Chicks 2006 Taking the Long Way."
$9.93   Used & New from: $0.01
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (91 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Eureka

4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

World Gone Crazy
9.  World Gone Crazy by Doobie Brothers

All The Women I Am
11.  All The Women I Am by Reba McEntire
