Compiling the Best of 2010 “Canadian Albums”

2010 is almost ending soon and its time to do a year end list on music.
I know its going to be annoying for those “Best Of” list.
I think its fun doing it.
Starting today I will re-listen the albums that came out in 2010.
Most of the albums have been reviewed but some need to be re-listened again and make my final judgement.
Sorry EPs and albums that came out in late 2009 can not qualify.
I will be doing a Top 50 list.
Like I did last year I will post them separately from #50-#41 and etc.
There might be last minute changes, some albums might be dropped out and be replaced.
Unless you want to help me out or suggest who to be in the list?
If I am missing a album please make a comment.
Here is a teaser from the Top 50 albums I have chosen in “alphabetical order” (not the official ranking).

    Ryan Dahle – Irrational Anthems

    In my opinion one of the most overlooked records of the last year and a masterpiece by any standards.
