Say what you will about the 2010s, but at least the decade brought us a wealth of great music.
While lists are a dime a dozen these days, I thought it would be appropriate to show our appreciation of what musically defined the last ten years for me. Plain and simple, these are my top 100 personal favorite records released between 2010 and 2019, in no particular order.
Compiling this list was extremely difficult, so I tried to narrow it down a little by excluding reissues, compilations, EPs and singles, and split-releases. With that being said, I know I must have missed some other heavy hitters. Let me know some of your favorite records of the last decade in the comments below!
Here’s hoping that we’ll be seeing just as many killer records, if not more so, in the 2020s.
