bgillesp's 2010s Albums of the Decade (197-101)

Honestly I'm pretty proud of this list. I feel like I have listened to a good majority of stuff that could make this list for my taste meaning I don't think I have too many glaring gaps in listening. Obviously there will be a good few albums I haven't checked from the decade that could be here, but I put a lot of time into minimizing that number as much as possible. Most of this half of the list will be honorable mentions w/o descriptions because effort. The "real" list starts with my 4.5 and up ratings from the decade. Anything with the same rating is essentially tied or loosely ranked. That being said, the 4.3s on this part of the list are essentially in my top 100 on a different day of the week. Other half of the list will have more involved descriptions. Lemme know what you think and what I'm missing.

28Kanye West
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy


4.25 (2010) I'm not the biggest Kanye fan, but there is no denying his skill in production, and there is no denying this album deserves a spot on this list.
27Cloudkicker
Beacons


4.25 (2010) Instrumental progressive metal with some early djent tendencies.
26Iglooghost
Steel Mogu


4.25 (2018) Clear Tamei and Steel Mogu. Counting both EPs here as a dual release. Love the fast paced but catchy IDM craziness.
25mewithoutYou
[untitled] e.p.


4.25 (2018) At first I liked this EP better than the full length, I think mostly because I love the acoustic "Winter Solstice" so much better. Eventually the full length overtook this, but I still really love this release too.
24Insomnium
Shadows of the Dying Sun


4.25 (2014) Insomnium is one of my oldest favorite bands and was a big stepping stone for me into DM. This album is big on my nostalgia factor, but I really think it is excellently done as well with "While We Sleep" being a top song of the decade.
23Deafheaven
Ordinary Corrupt Human Love


4.25 (2018) Doing just enough different to avoid becoming stale, they really just made this a more into a dream pop album and for the most part did very well with that.
22Turnover
Peripheral Vision


4.25 (2015) Dreamy emo.
21Laurel Halo
Quarantine


4.25 (2012) Weird ambient electronic w/ awesome album art. Shouts to Fripp!
20Trophy Scars
Darkness, Oh Hell


4.25 (2010) EP that is my favorite release from this post-hardcore band, other EPs and LPs included.
19Birds in Row
We Already Lost The World


4.25 (2018) Birds in Row put out one of the best metalcore/emo/hardcore/posthardcore/whatever-on-this-spectrum albums I've heard in a long while due to the killer basslines. Shouts to Papi!
18Oxbow
Thin Black Duke


4.25 (2017) Really entrancing stuff and killer atmosphere to this thing, but I wish there had been more length. Shouts to butcherboy!
17Wingnut Dishwashers
Burn the Earth, Leave it Behind


4.25 (2010) Weird folk punk that's a lot of fun.
16Portugal. The Man
In The Mountain In The Cloud


4.25 (2011) Floaty indie rock that's all about the chill and fun vibes.
15Pierce the Veil
Misadventures


4.25 (2016) If you're reading this list from lowest ranked to highest, this will probably be the first entry that will get me hate, but get used to it because I have 2 albums from these guys much higher on this list. The back half of this album falls ever so slightly, but I still love this band so much.
14The National
High Violet


4.25 (2010) This was one of the first albums I was ever specifically rec’d on Sput, so thank you to whoever it was and thanks for helping me get into the Sput community.
13The Bamboos
4


4.25 (2010) While popular opinion may say this is their best album (I think Dewi and I are their only fans on this site though), I think it gets edged out by Night Time People slightly just for the vocals. For me, Kylie Auldist as vocalist is the best part of the band. Their pop funk stylings on this album are their best musical work, but she only sings on a couple tracks here vs all of them on NTP. Either way, I highly recommend anything they've ever done of bluesy-soulful-pop-funk fun. Shouts to Dewi!
12Son Lux
Brighter Wounds


4.25 (2018) This is some of their most subdued work to date, but the compositions are still incredible. Such an underrated artist/group. Shouts to Papi and Potsy!
11Dead Letter Circus
This Is The Warning


4.25 (2010) Progressive hard rock/post-hardcore
10Kishi Bashi
Omoiyari


4.25 (2019) If it weren’t for that weird country-ish track this might would’ve tied with Lighgththgthhg for my favorite of his.
9Greyhaven
Empty Black


4.25 (2018) Sort of like ETID but fresher and cool in its own ways.
8Pain of Salvation
In the Passing Light of Day


4.25 (2017) Seriously great prog metal with a lot of terribly catchy moments, some deeply sincere moments, but also a couple suspiciously insincere moments that keep it from being higher.
7Devin Townsend Project
Transcendence


4.3 (2016) Last minute bump granted this a slot on the ranked portion of the list for me. For a while after Empath dropped, I couldn’t figure out which of these two I preferred, but after much deliberation, this won out.
6Obscura
Akróasis


4.3 (2016) Progressive DM album at a perfect short-ish length for back to back jams.
5Amia Venera Landscape
The Long Procession


4.3 (2010) Post-metal, post-hardcore, post-everything. Good stuff.
4Boards of Canada
Tomorrow's Harvest


4.3 (2013) I don't know much about BoC as this is the only album of theirs I have checked, but seeing as how I like it this much when it is supposed to be their worst, I really should check the others.
3Moon Tooth
Crux


4.3 (2019) Their first record was good, but holy cow this is even better. The prog elements are smoother, see “Motionless in Sky”, the heavier moments are more energetic, and overall it’s just more fun.
2Ghost (SWE)
Meliora


4.3 (2015) Heavy metal that is comically (not) satanic. Lots of great grooves.
1SikTh
Opacities


4.3 (2015) Creepy and wild progressive metal/metalcore. Loved seeing these guys open for Periphery.
