Each January, the Village Voice (our sister paper) releases its Pazz & Jop critics' Best Of designations for the previous year. For 2010, Kanye West quite unsurprisingly dominates both categories. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy tops the album list (like most Best of 2010 albums lists) with 3250 on the Voice's points system, doubling the score of the second-place release, LCD Soundsystem's This Is Happening. The top 10 is rounded out by Arcade Fire, Janelle Monae, Vampire Weekend, Big Boi, Beach House, the National, Sleigh Bells and Black Keys.
