It's that time of year again: the end. For music lovers, that means obsessively re-examining every release you spent time with in 2010, and painstakingly ranking them. Of course, the gang at All Songs Considered is no exception. On this edition of the show, host Bob Boilen, producer Robin Hilton, NPR Music editor Stephen Thompson, and NPR Music contributor Carrie Brownstein share their favorites of the year. Hear our biggest surprises, best new artists, and more.

Be sure to vote for your favorite artists and albums of the year at the All Songs Considered blog. Voting is open until Dec. 13. We'll post the results the next day, on Dec. 14.

Also, if you haven't already seen it, be sure to check the 50 Favorite Albums selected by the NPR Music team and NPR stations. These are the artists and albums we enjoyed the most in 2010 — the ones that inspired us, surprised us and stayed with us more than any others.

As always, let us know what you think in the comments section below.
