>The best albums of 2010


I’m getting old. It’s either that, or music is getting boring. Just like last year I feel I haven’t been catching up with what the hell is going on in this shithole filled with music. In my mind, the very best albums of 2010 were all black metal albums: Lawless Darkness, Paracletus, Stained Glass Revelations, Belus and Ominous Doctrines of The Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm.

Last year I was complaining about how shitty the rap scene really is. Same thing this year. Until yesterday I had only one rap record on the list, but then Master Skråd posted a video with one helluva good dude named Roc Marciano. I haven’t even heard his name before, but Marcberg is insanely good! This is like the perfect blend of Raekwon, Mobb Deep and Madlib. I’ve only listened to the album six times (since yesterday…), but it feels like a true rap classic already. We’ll see about that in a year or two.

Still, lots of really good releases, of course. Here’s the stuff I’ve enjoyed during the year, stuff that’s definitely worthy of your attention. Hopefully you’ll discover something new.
