Ok, so 2010 came to an end and we've been flooded with lists over the best records of the year. I really hate doing Top 10's (or maybe it should be a Top 5 in my case), but I have to contribute with something right? So, here it goes; here's a bunch of records and live shows that was released/happened during 2010 that I liked, in no particular order.
