|Top 25 Albums Of The Decade|
Limit one per artist. I started following new releases last year, which is why I didn't do top 50, or else it would be extremely weighted toward 08-09.
My favorite band of the decade's finest work. Just an incredibly solid bunch of songs, packed full of memorable moments (Blood and Thunder chorus, Iron Tusk main riff, etc.).
|2||At the Drive-In|
Relationship of Command
A relentless burst of energy and fury. I'm not huge on post-hardcore, but this transcends all music scenes.
|3||maudlin of the Well|
Extremely diverse, but does all of its myriad genres perfectly. They Aren't All Beautiful and Birth Pains of Astral Projection are amazing.
The production on this album is perfect. This band creates and atmosphere unlike any other.
See number 3, but add 100x more weirdness.
|6||Between the Buried and Me|
I would think that Colors and TGM suit my taste more, but I think BtBaM are better when they write songs as opposed to albums. Much love to Backwards Marathon and Selkies.
Hornets of the Pogrom
Can you say riffs?
Mabool (The Story of the Three Sons...)
Simply and experience to listen to.
|9||The Fall of Troy|
Shit's just crazy.
|10||The Black Keys|
All of their first four sound the same, but everything about the songs on this one is just *better.* All Hands Against His Own has one of my favorite riffs of the decade.
Worship and Tribute
Close to a World Below
|18||Protest the Hero|
Only Built 4 Cuban Linx...Part II
Token rap album!
From Mars to Sirius
|Nice list dude. I really really like 1,2,4,6,10,11,12,14,21,23,24.|
It is the Black Keys best release, but I really like Attack & Release as well.
|Awesome list, the only one I can say I don't like is 18, and that's because it sucks.|
|Great list, 1 4 6 18 21 and 22 are some of my faves, you got the wrong baroness though. Still don't see what's so great about 2 and 12, they just sound pretty "okay" to me nothing to die for.|
|Where in the hell is Sigur Ros?|
|They have never knowingly entered my ears. For serious, the only two post-rock albums I have are Red Sparowes' debut (which would make the top 40) and the new Mono album.|
|You need to check out Sigur Ros and GY!BE right now, Yndi Halda too.|
|Too much win for me to handle at once...|
|dang, that's a nice bass|
|check out edge of sanity - crimson 2 and tell me that shouldnt be in your top 25 at least.|
|gotta agree with the at the drive-in and BTBAM placement. interesting that you have torche there. apparently quite a few bigger more accomplished bands think the world of them. guy from ETID said they were the next nirvana and would change music. music is definitely different than anything ive heard in the past.|
|They sound like the happiest doom band ever.|
