Top 10 of 2010.

This is always the toughest. 

Every year, music-related people are asked to rank the best releases. Usually in limited numbers - 10 being the most popular. 

So, in that spirit, The Mixtape will be putting together 3 different Best of 2010 lists and we need your suggestions!

Our lists : 10 Best National New Releases, 10 Best Local New Releases and the 10 Best Reissues

There's so much to choose from, it's going to be hard to do. So that's where you guys come in : what impressed you this year?

@Julie : I'll give you credit for that Owen Pallett, and Kanye's album is a no-brainer, but I am sad that I don't recognize anything further down on your list other than the Margot & The Nuclear So and So's album, which was just OK in my opinion. I will now have to search these out!
