AbsolutePunk.net (Staff Compiled)

Written by: Thomas Nassiff (12/12/10)
After many painstaking hours of pacing around living rooms, we - the staff at AbsolutePunk.net - came up with our own lists of our favorite albums of 2010. All of the staff members spoke at some point about how making the lists in this phenomenal year of music was exceptionally hard. But, after using a series of techniques and methods which included delving into the third layer of dreams, we awoke with a collective list. Before you read, please recognize that this is our list. It's full of varying genres and preferences that make it our own. So we ask you not to complain about what is or isn't on here, but instead get in on the action yourselves in our popular thread for users to post lists. What do our lists share? What do you have on your list that we don't have on ours? What made 2010 awesome?

Awesome list. Great year for music. I don't think Kanye should have been first, but The Wonder Years being top five more than makes up for that haha.

Fantastic year, everybody!

Also, tallying this made me realize how tough it is for a record to make it near the top of this list. Being in the top ten or so basically indicates that most staffers ranked the record fairly high.

agree with most of it to a degree with the exception being motion city soundtrack, they haven't done anything decent in years.

I think they're ridiculously consistent. They only make good albums.

Jason, did you ever get the time to watch the live vids of them playing through CTTM at their holiday show? Man, they sound as good as ever. How Justin still hits some of those notes amazes me.
