12 Days Of Christmas: Zune HD

The Zune brand may be the whipping boy of the blog world, but everyone who’s ever gotten their hands on my Zune HD has been seriously impressed. You know why? Because it’s awesome. It’s got great battery life, a beautiful and intuitive interface, and you can buy and stream stuff right from the device. So we want to give one to you. It even comes with a month of Zune Pass, no strings attached.

What do you need to do? Leave a comment below listing your top three albums of 2010. For example:

Flying Lotus, Cosmogramma – Utterly insane, but you can’t stop the beat
Tame Impala, Innerspeaker – Unadulterated, unpretentious psych rock
Autolux, Transit Transit – Surprise make-out album of the year

Your picks don’t have to be as awesome as mine (they’re actually just a few that came to mind), and the format really doesn’t matter, but there do need to be three of them. With any luck you’ll all get some music recommendations, and one of you will get a Zune HD to play ’em on!

The winner will be chosen randomly and awarded the following prize:

One 32GB Zune HD (a new one, not mine) with one month of ZunePass service
