Top 10 Albums
Method Man, Ghostface Killah and Raekwon: Wu-Massacre
The best Wu-Tang Clan-related release since
Supreme Clientele, and the best hip-hop record of the year.
Another chapter in Fake Problems' continuously growing sound, this record has more groove than harmony than their prior efforts.
This album would have ranked much higher if it weren't for the inconsistency in the album's track sequence. Or maybe
This Is Satire was just waaaaay too good.

Energetic, raucous and a little dark; this album left me wait anxiously for their next.
I'll confess, 25% of this record I could live without, but the other remaining 75% is some of the band's best work to date.

It's scary how young this band is, and how they keep getting better and better. Fun, energetic, unique and ambitious are just a few words to describe this record. 2010 introduced the band to many new fans, and hopefully they'll continue to receive the acclaim and recognition they truly have earned and deserve.
EP of the Year
Banquets: This Is Our Concern, Dude
Great EP for another New Jersey band; poppy with just the right amount of rock and/or roll.
