With the GRAMMY-award nominations for 2011 pending announcement tomorrow night at 10pm and a slew of best-of lists pouring in from primarily U.K. magazines (see entry and also "most popular" sidebar), I thought this might be an ideal time to solicit some of your recommendations for best-of albums throughout 2010. Also, with the holiday season right around the corner, we had the idea to round up your suggestions, and post a comprehensive entry to serve as a dashboard of CD gifts for the avid music lover in your circle of friends or family. Down with lame gifts - up with good music. We're all music fans here, I think we can establish a strong circle of trust.
