Part 1 of No Ripcord's "Top Albums" feature has been posted for everyone's amusement or scrutiny. You can find the feature here.
I contributed blurbs for Marnie Stern's self-titled album and Menomena's Mines.
Within the next couple of weeks, I'll be posting my own selections for the best of 2010. I offered a taste a month or so ago, but my perspective has since changed a bit, so a definitive list will be up soon. What I'm hoping is that my list will inspire readers to debate, question or lambaste. I would like to have more interaction with readers, seeing as you're all nice enough to stop by and check out what I have to say, I'd like to read more of what YOU have to say.
Check out the list over at No Ripcord and, once Part 2 is posted, I will send along an update.
