Best of 2010

Check out the shades on that Bear!!!

Below are my favorite albums of 2010 and a song from each that is a good representation of each album. These albums / songs are not ranked in any type of order, but more how I felt they would blend together during a yule tide holiday listening session or something festive like that.
