Best Album of 2010 (no, it's most definitely not KPop!)

My favorite album of 2010 has to be The ArchAndroid by Janelle Monae, a killer performer who is able to layer about a million different things together and make it all sound really, really good. The album is narrated from the perspective of Monae's alter-ego, Cindy Mayweather, a messiah-like robot (it's a "conceptual thing," but don't ask me anything about it because whenever I try to explain it in person, it succeeds in doing nothing more than garnering a few raised eyebrows). Just listen. Check out the single Tightrope here, which features Big Boi of Outkast.
