OK, now that the 2010 is behind us, and we have ALL the facts in front of us, here’s my list of favorite CDs of the year past. As Megan will tell you, i’m not a huge fan of lists because, quite frankly, they’re all just opinions. And as we all know, my opinion is superior to all others, so i just feel bad when i put out lists that so obviously trump all others. Oh well, it’s my cross to bear.
1. The Black Keys, Brothers–OK, i lied. This clearly was the best CD of 2010. Paraphrasing one of the better reviews i recall reading, the Keys didn’t reinvent the wheel with this one, they just proved they could make it rounder, rubberier and added spokes.
