Rolling Stone's Best Albums of 2010: Elton and Leon at #3

Rolling Stone has put out its best albums of 2010 and Elton and Leon not only appear on the chart but RS has installed "The Union" as the third best album of the year.  And even with this honor RS still finds a way to show Elton the back of their hand...

Two rock giants, one largely forgotten, rekindle a friendship and make music that ranks with their best. Producer T Bone Burnett delivers his most spectacular production in memory, filled with shining steel guitar, chortling brass and gospel-time choirs. Ultimately, it's Russell's voice that shines brightest, drawing on the entire history of American popular music in its canny, vulnerable, knowing croon.
