Rllmuk's Favourite Albums Of 2010 - List Thread


Recommended Posts

This is a companion thread to http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?showtopic=235357 - if you've already posted there and would like your favourites to be part of the compiled list, please post your results here - feel free to list up to 10 albums - in this format:

Position - Artist - Album

for example,

01 - The National - High Violet

02 - Engineers - In Praise Of More

03 - Brian Eno - Small Craft On A Milk Sea

PLEASE DON'T POST ANY OPINIONS OR RESPONSES TO OTHER FORUMITES' CHOICES IN THIS THREAD - you can do that in http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?showtopic=235357.

The spaces and hyphens between position, artist and album are really important as it means that I can import the text straight into Excel without having to piss about with reformatting, and also I can reuse the 2007/2008/2009 spreadsheet ;-) . I'll leave this thread running until the end of 23 December.

You can edit your list as much as you like - I won't compile them until I close the thread.

If you have any questions then PM me - if the answer is useful to others I'll add it to this post, below.

Q - Are reissues allowed?

A - As long as the reissue date is in 2010, yes.

Q - Is Local Natives' "Gorilla Manor" album from 2009 or 2010?

A - It was released in the UK in November 2009 (USA February 2010) so counts as a 2009 release for this poll.
