I asked each member of WECB's music staff to make a list of their top ten musical releases of 2010. We have 25 days left of the year, so these are pending. I wanted to post them anyway to kick start the fun of composing and refining a super list of 2010's best new music. And let me tell you, on the list of the best ways to have fun, making them is number 1.
Oh! and top 2010 pics of the staff are pending as well.
