2010 marked the return of one of the most celebrated rock bands of the late 90's and early 2000's, Tonic.  Ending their hiatus of nearly a decade,Tonic returned with a brand new album that not only is a tribute to all the great music the band has recorded, but also gives a refreshing sound needed in today's cluttered music scene.

Smoke & Mirrors
Lifehouse
Read Review
Lifehouse returned with a new album in early 2010, and while its hard to place this album at the top of the band's stellar catalogue, Smoke & Mirrors is easily the band's most diverse album to date.  It's their constant progression and growth as a band that makes this album so great, and will keep the band on this chart for years to come with future releases.

Sycamore Meadows11:59
Ryan Star
Read Review
It was the album that seemed like it would never be released.  Delayed for over six months from its original release date, 11:59 finally was released in the summer of 2010, and judging from the response, it appears it was worth the wait. 

If ever there was an album overflowing with single worthy material, this album is it.  Leading up to the release of the album, six different tracks were featured as singles on Alternative Addiction.  From the overwhelming response of "Last Train Home" in 2009, to the breakout success of "Breathe" last summer, to the still climbing "Start A Fire," 11:59 has solidified Ryan Star as one of the most talented singer/songwriters in the industry today.  If this is 11:59 for Star, we have a feeling we'll be hearing from him well after midnight.
