(RECAP) Trash Kozel’s Favorite Music of 2010

tk2010

It’s finally over, and if you’ve been reading along (thank you), you’re probably about as glad as I am.  That said, its been a nice exercise putting my feelings about these records into words. If I’ve introduced just one of you to a release you wouldn’t have checked out otherwise, then it was doubly worth it.

If you remember way back when on Jan. 1, I kind of outlined my criterium for ranking the releases, so I figured I would remind you of that now, as I post my complete list (with links to each review in the album titles). Hopefully this gives my Top 25 a bit more context, and who knows, maybe it gets some of you riled up about low rankings – if so, please comment!  Like I said, I’m potentially going to have a mix hosted in the next couple days, so stay tuned for that.  And again, thanks for reading!
