In the thick of prime Best of 2010 season, people are getting pretty vocal about their favorite music of the year — not to mention what they think about other people’s favorites. Things tend to get heated, name-calling sometimes ensues, and Twitter becomes a veritable battleground. Here at Flavorpill, we’re also serious about the music we love, but we’re also kind of sick of the yearly death match over whose #1 is truly #1. So, to keep things lighthearted, we’re stereotyping you by your favorite album of 2010. Don’t worry — ours is on there, too, and the stereotype totally fits.
