2010 IN REVIEW: Graham Scala's Albums Of The Year

Posted by: Necci – Dec 31, 2010


When Graham (seen above performing in one of his many bands) turned in his Top 10 records of 2010, I considered writing back and asking him to write brief descriptions of each one. Then I realized that he'd already written lengthy reviews about the majority of his list. Therefore, instead of new writeups, we've linked each album title to its corresponding review (or, in one case, interview). Hopefully this will tell you all you need to know about the albums in question, as well as giving you a chance to catch up on all the great writing Graham did for us over the past year. There are a few of these that he never wrote about, but maybe if we're lucky, he'll get to those in 2011. Anyway, without further ado, we present:

Graham Scala's Top Ten of 2010

10. Neil Young - Le Noise

9. Punch - Push/Pull

8. Barn Owl - Ancestral Star

7. Group Inerane - Guitars From Agadez Vol. 3

6. Leatherface - The Stormy Petrel

5. New Model Army - Today Is A Good Day

4. Grinderman - 2

3. Darkthrone - Circle The Wagons

2. Swans - My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky

1. The Body - All The Waters Of The Earth Turn To Blood
