I was in full swing of my musical awakening by the turn of the decade, so it's much easier for me to relate to and understand the context of the albums on this page. What's below essentially covers my Top 10s for the years prior to me writing lists for this site, so it's probably the one most relevant to TND's viewers/readers. Maybe some of you have been following the YouTube channel since it was just kicking into gear, and maybe you were there when Anthony put out his own 2010, 2011, etc. lists; I'm sort of making up for lost time here. If you dig the music I rep, you can find three of my previous lists (which actually contain writing about the music!) at the bottom. The 2015 one is kind of shit; the others are improvements.
But we're getting ahead of ourselves. Thank you for reading/listening; now here's the last leg of the trip:
