#1 - Shame, Shame - Dr. Dog
I based my choices on how often I played from a certain disc and also on the strength of exceptional tracks. Rankings of course are arbitrary and I really felt that odering them was like splitting hairs. That said, of all the albums I've heard in 2010, Dr. Dog's Shame, Shame was outstanding front-to-back is by far my favorite of the year.
