I should be ready to release my Top 40 Albums of 2010 shortly but this post is just a bit of a disclaimer so to speak.
If you read my list and say to yourself (or to me) "Where the hell is Band X?" its absence can be explained by one of three reasons:
a) It sucked
b) my complicated decision making process did not warrant it a Top 40 spot. Just assume it was #41.
c) I never got around to listening to it for whatever reason.
Examples of such are as follows: a) HELLYEAH, Ozzy, Christian Mistress b) Enslaved, Torche, Integrity and c) Tryptikon (or however its spelled), Agalloch, dozens of others.
Please save your questions til the end of the list.
