Re: Best of 2010.
I think 2010 was a bit of a disappointment, not too many great albums. 2009 was a great year, and I think 2011 will be too.
Can't really think of too many...
Alter Bridge's Alter Bridge III was really good. Too many people pass them off as a hardcore metal band when they're actually not, more of a hard rock band.
I also liked Avenged Sevenfold's nightmare. Now they are also normally a metal band, but there was some old skool metallica style and even some prog in this album.
