Best Albums of 2010: Spin Magazine

Alt-rock-centric Spin magazine clocks in with a surprisingly well-rounded list that touches on dance music (Robyn), country (Jamey Johnson) and soul (Janelle Monae), but ultimately gives the nod to hip-hop’s troubled egotist Mr. Kanye West:

1. Kanye West’s “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”
2. Deerhunter’s “Halcyon Digest”
3. Arcade Fire’s “The Suburbs”
4. LCD Soundsystem’s “This Is Happening”
5. Jamey Johnson’s “The Guitar Song”
6. Janelle Monae’s “The ArchAndroid”
7. Grinderman’s “Grinderman 2”
8. M.I.A.’s “Maya”
9. Kid Cudi’s “Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager”
10. Robyn’s “Body Talk, Part I”
