I’ve just had a look at all your suggestions on the Best Of 2010 blog from last week, and managed to crunch them all into a chart of sorts.



Given there’s been such a wide range of albums mentioned, plenty of them only got one or two votes. But these are the lucky 13 that harvested three votes or more. Interesting – healthy, probably – that seven of them didn’t feature in my original 30. I do have some time, as mentioned before, for Caribou, and while Flying Lotus’ music sometimes makes me feel as if ADD can be infectious, I quite like it in the right mood. The others: not so much.

Many thanks, again, for engaging with this.
