Here is another installment of what to expect on the Best of 2010 list.
This time being “Overall”.
I don’t just focus on Canadian music, I do check out stuff from the USA and the UK.
Overall being albums outside of Canada that was released in 2010.
As before in the “Canadian albums of 2010” no albums that was released in late 2009.
There will be some Canadian albums that made a splash outside of Canada crossing over into this list.
I really need your help/input on which albums from the USA, UK or elsewhere should make it in the Top 50?
Please make a comment and I will try and see if I should check out the album.
