Putting a positive spin on procrastination and the barrage of “best of” lists and “top ranked” charts the new year invariably brings, Sound on the Sound took some real time reflecting on the best music of 2010. The music blog has just released its Top 25 Northwest Albums of 2010, a list which includes artists from Vancouver (B.C.) down to Cottage Grove, Oregon and as far East as Forks. The blog also doesn’t count bands that are signed to Northwest labels, but hail from elsewhere, which makes it a bona fide Northwest roots ranking. Click the link above to view the top 25 most “significant” albums of 2010 as deemed by Sound on the Sound to discover some of the hidden local gems that got lost in the post-December mad dash.

Sound on the Sound
This week’s release of Pearl Jam’s new record BACKSPACER on their own label XX as well as a hometown return for two nights at Key Arena marks for them a step for them back into the limelight and an opportunity for Pearl Jam to showcase a record made for themselves and their fans, unencumbered by the weight of a contract or any other extraneous expectations. With that luxury of time and resources, Pearl Jam did what everyone wanted them to do: deliver a group of songs definitively the Pearl Jam of today. Thanks to the band, one lucky Sound on the Sound reader who comments on the blog’s post by Thursday September 24 at 12-noon will be randomly chosen to receive a Vinyl edition of BACKSPACER. Click the above link to read more about the album and comment for a chance to win.
