Fortunately there were at least 50 songs that were really good and you should look them all up. I could make a zip of them but I probably won't.

23 Apr 2011, 08:15 by Coffinwood_MillAfter much pestering, I've relented. Hope you folks are happy. Here is my Best In Indie / Misc. 2010 list.
Those who are actually interested, feel free to comment, criticize, and suggest any albums that you may have heard that I might have missed in any genre. Also, feel free to post your fave albums of 2010. There are so many great albums out there that it's impossible to hear them all.
I'm open to any listening suggestions!

20 Jan 2011, 02:00 by helloimjoshuaI had a short ~150 word review/blurb for about half the albums on this list. Unfortunately, my power went out and Microsoft Word didn't auto-recover my document for some odd reason. I'm not motivated enough to write all those again so instead, I wrote a simple list. 2011 albums have been leaking and releasing so I feel like it's reasonable to hurry up and get this list done quickly. I guess I'll have to wait until 2011 for an extensively written end of the year list.
2010 was the first year I tried to listen to a lot of music - I officially moved out of my absolutepunk.net phase in the fall of 2009. However, 2010 was also a tricky year in music because no album truly stuck with me for a long time. Therefore, there is no ranking system in this list. This list is in order of release date. Listing the albums in order of release date helps me remember when i listened to the album and also helps me associate those albums with memories/events around that time.
