We're back for another day of the Wildy's World Top-60 of 2010. We're moving quickly to crown the top album of the year on New Year's Eve, as well as the Artist of the Year and Song of the Year.
40. Dana Wells – The Evergreen EP
Brilliant debut EP from the Washington D.C. based singer/songwriter with a bright future.
39. Alesa Lajana – Secret Garden
Lajana is an amazing songwriter who creates magic with her voice and on guitar. Perhaps one of the best all around-talents in Indie music.
38. The White Ravens – Gargoyles And Weather Vanes
Brother and sister Amy and Will Bennett are a duo on the rise. The chemistry and sound here are unforgettable.
37. Mike Farris – The Night The Cumberland Came Alive
The former Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies front man continues to impress with a mix of Americana and Gospel in an inspired performance given in the wake of the great flood in Nashville.
36. Darius Rucker – Charleston, SC 1966
Rucker's seemingly improbably rise as a country music star continues with perhaps his most poignant and subtle songwriting to date.
35. Kate Rusby – Make The Light
Rusby's voice is the fabric of dreams.
34. Fozzy – Chasing The Grail
Chris Jericho and Fozzy bring the muscle on a heavy hitting album full of distinctive pop sensibility.
33. The Flutterbies feat. Maureen Davis – The Flutterbies
Broadway diva Maureen Davis shows she can rock.
32. Halie Loren – Stages
The first (likely of many) live album from the engaging voice of Halie Loren. The best live album of the year.
31. Kate Miller-Heidke – Curiouser
Yes, this album was first released in 2008, but it took until 2010 for Curiouser to drop in the Western Hemisphere. A brilliant mix of songwriting, dance beats and kitsch. Miller-Heidke has an operatic voice and a saucy tongue, a combination that has icon written all over it.
