At the end of 2009, 40 From The Noughties began. Over the course of a month, Just Played examined some of the finer releases from the previous decade. This process provoked a lot of debate and prompted plenty of people to engage a little more with the site. As a result, it seemed logical to offer a more expansive end of year round up this time out and the whole thing unravels below. You can find links to all thirty posts counting down the albums of 2010. As ever, your feedback is invited and please feel free to disagree vehemently with any (or perhaps all) of this list. 2009’s list can be found with some explanation here or you can quickly skim through it, along with 2008’s list, down the right hand side of this page.
