TREY HILL’S (1/2 Of Let This Colony Know) TOP 10 Albums of 2010
This year has been pretty memorable when it has come to musical content. Whether it was albums being released, discovering songs, or the countless shows I’ve attended, this year has been mindblowing in the music department. So without further hesitation, here are my favorite albums from 2010.
1. Four Year Strong - Enemy of the World
- The simple fact that these guys deliver the most fun-intensive shows and that you can play any of their albums and have a great time singing along including this one gives them my top spot.
Listen to: Eternal Summer (Wasting Time)
2. Minus The Bear - Omni
- One of my favorite bands out there, these guys never cease to amaze me. From front to back this album was great.
Listen to: My Time / Into The Mirror
3. Circa Survive - Blue Sky Noise
- You can never go wrong when Anthony Green is on an album. This album was definitely going in a different direction compared to the last two but still a winner.
