Best Albums of 2010 – Hope & Anchor Edition


2010 was one of the best years for music I can remember.  It seems like every week I was obsessed with a new record.  The year isn’t quite over, but since Radiohead’s album won’t hit shelves until early ‘11, I feel like this list is pretty safe from seismic shifts.
