Top 50 Albums of the 2010s

The full list of my personal favorite albums of the past decade. I stuck to one album per artist, which was very tough for the very top of the list. You can listen to my extended thoughts on the top 10 over at We Bought A Mic.

Music is obviously something that is very personal and subjective to each and every one of us. There are albums that are undoubtedly the objective masterpieces of the decade, and there are albums that resonated with me on a deep, emotional level. Sometimes those were one and the same. Other not. I tried to find a balance in this list while always being true to myself and what meant the most to me. Even still, there are albums I loved that didn’t make the cut.

I’ll be adding some short thoughts on these soon. In the meantime, check out my Songs of Decade Spotify playlist (I’ll probably make a separate list for that too).
