Favorite Albums of 2010!

John Crotty
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
You Get What You Give
"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"."
Born Free
Born Free
"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."
Smoke & Mirrors
Smoke & Mirrors
"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
Fearless Love
"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."
Wonders Of The Younger
Wonders Of The Younger
"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."
Up On The Ridge
Up On The Ridge
"This album is an ABSOLUTE must for any fans of Bluegrass music. Includes the country music hit Up On The Ridge and a fantastic cover version of U2s' Pride."
Court Yard Hounds
Court Yard Hounds
"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."
Eureka
Eureka
"EUREKA brings together Rooney's knack for creating melodic hooks, reverberating guitars, elaborate sunny heartfelt vocal harmonies and crowning anthems. Includes the hit "Can't Get Enough""
World Gone Crazy
World Gone Crazy
"As strong as any album the Doobies released in the 1970s!!! Totally surprised that they could reignite the magic of yesteryear with their first album in over a decade. Highly recommended for fans of 70s music."
A Woman Needs (Amazon.com Exclusive)
A Woman Needs (Amazon.com Exclusive)
"JH steps out from the Wreckers to deliver a great album that can best be described as Gretchen Wilson like country music for 20 somethings. Includes the hit "Boy Like Me"."
All The Women I Am
All The Women I Am
"Reba's 34th career studio album highlights include the smash hit, "Turn On the Radio," as well as the superstar's popular cover of Beyonce's hit, "If I Were A Boy,""
The Reason Why
The Reason Why
"To me, Little Big Town sounds like Fleetwood Mac if FM did a country record! Includes the hit "Little White Church""
The Band Perry
The Band Perry
"2010 debut album from siblings Kimberly (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, piano), Reid (bass guitar, background vocals) & Neil Perry ((mandolin, drums, accordion, background vocals). Includes the hits Hip To My Heart, You Lie and If I Die Young. The Band Perry very much reminds me of the 1980s band Scandal."
I Got Your Country Right Here
I Got Your Country Right Here
"GW reminds me of a country music version of Joan Jett...refusing to compromise on the music she wants to put out!!!"
Midnight Souvenirs

"J Giels Band frontman drops an amazing disc after a 14 year layoff from recording."
No Better Than This
No Better Than This
"Producer T Bone Burnett captured Mellencamp at: Sun Studio in Memphis (where Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis recorded) and in Room 414 of the Gunter Hotel in San Antonio (where Robert Johnson recorded in 1936). The songs reflect American musical traditions including folk, rockabilly and country, while addressing such themes as hope, relationships and life."
Mojo
Mojo
"To Pettypresents a wide variety of American music from rock 'n' roll to country and both electric and acoustic blues. And then there are the images in Petty's lyrics which slip in on the melodies and set up a home in your head."
Speak Now
Speak Now
"If you can listen without prejudice & eliminate preconceived notions about Taylor Swift this collection is actually pretty good. Includes the hits Mine & Back To December."
Everything Comes and Goes
Everything Comes and Goes
"'Everything Comes And Goes' represents Branch's first project since she enjoyed her first country smash 'Stand Still, Look Pretty' by The Wreckers. True to its philosophical title, 'Everything Come And Goes' documents what became a complicated and emotional time in the life of Branch. According to Branch, 'Everything Comes And Goes' reflects what she calls 'two break-ups the past year or two.'"
