As we approach the end of 2010 everyone's at it, counting down the best albums of the past 12 months, and entertainment.ie's no exception as I've put together my personal top 20 albums of the year for your perusal and criticism.

Yesterday I directed you to the albums that have landed between No. 20 and No. 11 and today I've gushed even more over my top ten favourite albums of the year.

In the list there's some obvious inclusions, some glaring omissions and hopefully a few surprises. Of course, it's all subjective so please tell us all about your favourite music of the year in the comments below.
