Top Scores 2010: Critic's Choice

This list is the final version and will not be updated. It is based on the following soundtrack review websites: Soundtrack Geek, Soundtrack Magazine, Scorenotes, Filmtracks, Movie Music UK, Scoretrack, Tracksounds, Movie Wave, MainTitles, Cinemusic, Empire Online, Scoremagacine, BSO Spirit, Colonne Sonore,, Filmmusik 2000, Muzyka Filmowa, FSM, ScoreCrave, Film Score Click Track and Gordon And The Whale.

Each score must have at least 3 reviews to be counted and this list doesn't include game scores since reviews are pretty much non-existent. Links to my reviews of the scores will be added when available.
