Top 10 Albums of 2010
10. Ryan Adams & The Cardinals – III/IVVulpes: Recorded in 2006, but released under Ryan’s start up indie label, Pax-Am, this year. No one describes this album better than Mr. Adams; “concept rock opera about the 80′s, ninjas, cigarettes, sex, and pizza.”

6. Dr. Dog – Shame, ShameVulpes: One of our favorite bands since the release of Toothbrush, Dr. Dog did not disappoint.
