6. Alex B, Moments–i dig Alex B’s sound in a BIG way. Possibly my favorite beat album of the year. 7. Teebs, Ardour–Or maybe this one. Both were damn fine beat records. ‘Nuff said. 8. Grinderman, Grinderman II–i’ve said it before, and i’ll say it again–i can only hope and pray that my mid-life crisis sounds 1/100th this kick ass. This, my friends, is gutter rock blues at its finest. 9. Big Boi, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty–The until-now-less-heard-from-half of Outkast proves his worth and then some on perhaps the best rap CD of 2010. 10. Erykah Badu, New Amerykah, Part Two (Return of the Ankh)–Ms. Badu continues her perfection of odd funk and R&B.
