2010 End Of The Year Lists: Staff Top 10s

Most music websites like ours publish end of the year lists (most times before the year is over), but we see this as a time to truly celebrate what God is doing through art and music. For the next few weeks we will be posting our lists of the best recordings in 2010, divided by genres and categories. This all leads up to our final presentation of our Essential 25 Recordings of 2010 post on the last week of January.  This is our joyous recounting of all that amazed us in 2010.

This week we take a look at our staff’s personal top 10 lists. This is the only time that we rank our albums, and believe me it was a hard task for all.
