The AllMusic editors are recapping the year in recordings with well over a dozen posts in which they present their favorites within specific genres and styles. Right now, on the AllMusic Blog, they provide a list of their favorite reggae releases of 2010. The list features representatives from the new guard (10 Ft. Ganja Plant, Wrongtom), some names from the old guard (Dennis Brown, the Uniques), a few crossover artists (Nas, Madlib), and, of course, a member of the royal family (Damian Marley).
