Rolling Stone Calls Band of Joy #8 in 2010

Rolling Stone Magazine has released it's list top 30 albums of 2010. Along with other albums of the rock genre by Kid Rock and Kings of Leon, and by established artists such as John Mellencamp and Elton John, Robert Plant's Band of Joy comes in at #8.
Keep waiting, Jimmy Page — he's not coming back. Plant followed up his dreamy roots-romp Raising Sand (2007) with an album that was edgier and rootsier: Plant and his bandleader, guitarist Buddy Miller, pursue ancient songs and modern tangents with a black-light glow on this psychedelic exploration of blues and country, covering Los Lobos, Townes Van Zandt, the slow-core band Low and public-domain gospel as if they are all stops on the true road to nirvana.
