Ladies And Gentlemen, The Graduating Class of 2010

(EDIT: For reasons varied and convoluted, some stuff got left off the list. So hopefully this is now the definitive list)
Since it panned out so well as a digital reminder last year, I've decided to compile yet another gargantuan list of all the albums and EPs that have graced the ears of Al's Music Rant over the course of the year. The truly dedicated amongst you will note that, where possible, I've linked to previous features and reviews on the blog.
Think of it as a reminder of the year's catalogue before it gets handily categorised and humourously scrutinised (The Good, The Bad & The James Blunt awards) and glorified (Top 15 Albums of 2009). Or like one of those photomosaics, a small collection of individual elements that contribute to the larger landscape that was the 2010 musical landscape. Strap in, it's gonna be a bumpy ride...
