Random facts
- My comeback pick last year, Theatre of Tragedy, ended their career in 2010. So, no comeback this year.
- For the second year in a row, my album of the year was a candidate to the Mercury Prize, and for the second year in a row, it lost.

    Everywhere I look I see Les Discrets and Alcest praised, so overrated bands. On the other hand, Aldaaron is in my top 3 for last year, beautiful music.
