CT’s Favorite Albums of 2010
The results are in from CT’s Favorite Albums of 2010 voting– the final such list I participated in for 2010– and it’s a good one to end on. The CT Music team has done an increasingly good job in recent years of celebrating both sacred music and spiritually inquisitive secular music, to the extent that I’m not even sure how much those labels mean anything anymore. This list, in particular, is really delightful for its mix of traditional gospel, indie rock, folk and Americana– and, um, whatever the Sufjan album is– and, of course, there are several instances of overlap with my own, personal list (Mavis, Anais Mitchell, Robert Plant, Aaron Neville) plus several other records that I really enjoyed last year (Patty Griffin, Robert Randolph, and the Good God! compilation, in particular).
