LB's Top 20 of Twenty-Ten: Non-NW Edition

December 23rd, 2010

Hey dudes, here’s my list of favorite albums from the past year (2010, stoners). I picked twenty this year as a small tribute to this being the first year where debate on how to pronounce said year swirled fiercely and ardently. Is it “twenty-ten”? Or is it “two thousand ten”? How to decide? Anyhoo, I ranked ‘em, but after the first 6 or 7, it’s all pretty arbitrary. The Suburbs came out on top. Can you believe that shit??
