Everything sounds great to me!

A lot of my favourite artists released albums this year but regrettably, I haven't bought most of them yet. So I'm not really sure if I have a favourite album of 2010...
Actually, I've really enjoyed "Winter hopes" which was an album released this year by Auryn, a Belgian singer. I don't know if you've heard of her but you might like her. :)

Hello,

I am a regular visitor of your Blog and would like to address my respect to all the work and efforts you put into your comments and snipets.
Sadly there isn't always much time to leave a comment to each and every entry, and honestly most of them are pure discoveries for the humble listener anyway.
But asked for just four BEST OFs 2010, shouldn't be any problem at all.
So here we go:

french
All time favorite
STELLA
Cauchemar Auto Protestateur, etc.

folk
Re-Released
KATHERINE HOWE
What a Beautiful Place

Pourquoi ce blog est-il en anglais si la plupart des artistes sont francophones?

snoro: because unfortunately i am not french!

Best releases of 2010 in my opinion are the new albums of Fabienne Delsol (On my mind) and Club 8 (People's record). Check them out if you haven't already.

i like fabienne but didn't know she had a new album so i will check it out. i am listening to club 8 western hospitality now - it definitely has potential so i will listen to some more - thanks!

Western hospitality doesn't give a good impression of the Club 8-album so I suggest to listen to some others songs. Or you might miss some of the loveliest vocals around: those of Karolina Komstedt.
