Tearliner’s favorite albums in 2010

I’m very happy that Tearliner once again agreed to list his favorite albums from the year that just passed for Indieful ROK. See, in addition to being a very talented songwriter himself, Tearliner also has an awesome taste in music with music director work for Coffee Prince and other dramas and movies behind him. I foresee that much of my own music listening will be based on the below at the very least for the next month.
