Music that defined my 2010

Definitely Got this idea from Michael Dominice so major props to him. This post is all about the CD's that where being listened to the most and not neccesarily all about new releases.

2010 CDs:
AB III by Alter Bridge

Mark Tremonti is a beast on guitar. I wish i had half the guitar skills he does. His guitar work on "Slip to the Void" is worth the price of this CD.

Horseshoes and Handgrenades - Disciple

I really enjoy the music the guys from Disciple are making. Its honest, hard hitting, and intense spiritual rock. They are clear in their Christian message. Also some really nice vocals here.

How to Destroy Angels - How to Destroy Angels

I'm not a huge indie music fan. So any CD that catches my attention is a good CD. The band is comprised of Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor and his wife. I was struck by how well the band produced an accessible indie CD.

Other Cds in my rotation:

No artwork here, this more a conglormeration artist that piqued my interest in 2010 and who i enjoyed.

welcome to the fall-32 Leaves: I always love some hard rock. Incorporating some grunge work as well and it produces a good Cd...some language which marks it down in my book

warrior poets-This fires embrace: Sort of a Rock/Metal/Alternative conglomeration into one sound of awesomeness

Vision Tour- Submission Red: This band is produced by Ben Kasica of Skillet and it somewhats shows. I'm always a fan of some good chic-fronted rock and Yvonne Winfrey definitely rocks out like no other

The Genesis Prologue - Sons of God: A nice indie rock band...nuff said

Future of Forestry-A feel like a special note should be made that I've only listened to their Christmas stuff..but its amazing. And the fact that i like it should say enough cuz i'm usually not a huge christmas music fan.

I need to check out that Trent Reznor album - thanks for the tip. TOTALLY forgot about Disciple's new album. Putting it on the list now.
