Kanye West Tops Spin's Top 40 Albums of 2010 List

Kanye West Tops Spin's Top 40 Albums of 2010 List

Spin is the latest publication to drop its top albums of 2010 list on the anticipating public, and they went the sorta obvious route of crowning Kanye West as 2010's ultimate victor. Makes sense I guess, and it ought to rattle the cages of Spin's readership, which is what good lists do.

 

But from there, the list gets mad sketchy: What are you doing here, Neil Young and Robert Plant (and Drake and Against Me! and M.I.A. and Cee-Lo Green and Eminem)? Kid Cudi as the second best rap album of the year, a full four spots above Big Boi? And that awful Yeasayer album at number 12? And MGMT? But big-ups for having Big K.R.I.T. on there. That one is tops.
