The Best of 2010 (So Far) /via @muzzleofbees

I realize that we’re well beyond the halfway point of 2010, and that other blogs have already chimed in with the record’s they’re loving this year, but I was thinking about my favorite albums of the year today and decided to put them out here for everyone to see. There’s plenty of year left, so it will be interesting to see which albums stick with me until the end of December. So here goes, in no particular order, my favorite releases (thus far) from 2010.
