Favourite Albums: 2010-2015

Been thinking lately about making a list for this. I didn't include any from 2016 because they clearly haven't had enough time to settle in. This is a loosely ranked list of all my favourite albums from this decade so far. When it got to the last 15, things got very difficult for me to rank them haha. I made a very conscious effort to only limit one release per band. I'm very surprised by my #1 even though it's unmistakably deserving of being there.

Despite being an album I've only known about since late 2014, it's the had the most significant impact on me this decade by far. It epitomizes everything I enjoy about music. O'Brother dabbles in a crazy amount of genres here and sounds natural in every one of them and it's incredible. Somebody asked me recently what I like most in music. I had to think hard but eventually answered "I like when the artist sounds like they still give a fuck". In other words, I like when the music has passion and meaning to both the artists themselves and I. And you can hear when it does, I'm not crazy. Look back on some of the recent releases of your favourite bands and ask yourself this: "Was the album good? If it was, does the artist sound like they still give a fuck?". For me, in a lot of cases, the follow-up response is actually "No". This particular album could not have been conceived by a band who didn't care, it's simply too powerful and too emotional and I'm so glad I discovered it.
