Recorded New Year's Eve 2010, the Best Albums Round Table (BART) 2010 engages five (5) podcasters / music bloggers in an entertaining discussion on the best (urban) albums of the year. This celebration of beautiful artistry will enlighten you on those on the verge, in the midst and maintaining musical excellence in 2010 and beyond. The original BART 2010 discussion was held on 12 December 2010, but technology tried to shut us down. We came back together on yesterday (NYE), after letting our thoughts marinate and re-recorded our discussion. The final product is now affectionately known as "the DO-OVER." Push play and enjoy fun, entertaining commentary on our picks for this year's best albums, honorable mentions and DJ Diva's psychic predictions for 2011. It's full of love, laughs and WIN. Much love goes out to our brother-in-podcasting, Todd Kelley aka The Big La, whose presence is felt all over this year's roundtable. We see you, playboy.
