The good people over at Grimey's sent over their 50 top-selling albums of 2010 the other day, and even though they weren't technically a local band for much of the year, it's pretty cool that The Black Keys topped the list, just as Dan Auerbach puts the finishing touches on a new jail-like studio in downtown Nashville.

What you see below is the combined vinyl and CD sales list — if you must know, The Black Keys sold more vinyl, Mumford & Sons sold more CDs and Arcade Fire came in third either way — along with links to all our various sundry Scene and Cream coverage from throughout the year and, in the case of the local records that made the cut, where the album placed in our Top Albums of 2010 critics' poll.
