I guess Kid A wasn't released in the nineties.

The fact that ( ) is so low kind of pissses me off, and that they still they sung it in Hopelandic which the band has shot down on numerous occasions.

Agree kind of with this list. Some albums I don't think deserved to be on here and some were left out that did

I thought they'd put Picaresque and Talkie Walkie higher, surprised at their Ryan Adams and Go! Team picks, glad to see Califone get some love, but otherwise, Everything is In Its Right Place by p4k standards. And they got #1 and #2 spot on.

Pitchfork is stupid. They are so biased towards certain bads it isn't even funny. I mean I love Radiohead, they are my favorite band, but if anything sounds remotely like them they say "rip-of", give it a 2 out of 10 and call it a day.

2 for NIN The Fragile? No. Just no.

( ) doesn't deserve to be higher, it sucks. List was pretty good overall, though since they put Mastodon on I though for sure they would have at least one Isis album, they love that band.

() was fine where it was and I think Agaetis Byrjun is better. Needed a little more metal and a little less rap. Overall good list - I've already found a few albums I've missed this decade that are awesome. One being The Wrens - The Meadowlands which is amazing.

That being said, Kid A probably is the best of the decade. So good choice I guess. I don't get all the hoopla over Funeral though, I think #2 might be a little bit high.

I guess you can let them off for that if it didn't make a "Best of the 90's" list. If it was late-ish in the year then it's impact wouldn't necesserally be felt in time. Let's be honest, it wasn't until Radiohead started bumming them that anyone took any notice.

I think it was released in North America in 2000, so they're probably basing it on that.

Agaestis Byrjun was released in Iceland in 1999, but it was fully released in 2000. It's like the whole Bon Iver debate, which we won't get into. Speaking of Bon Iver, nice to see they are loving it more than that 8.1 in '07. Though I suspect alot of that has to do with blog hype and they don't want to look behind the curve... like they usual are.

And P4K has a 'thing' for 'sludge' metal(Isis, Mastodon, Kylesa, Baroness)

I wonder if Pitchfork even likes Mastodon and Isis, or if they just pulled them out of a hat (with a couple others) to be token metal bands as an attempt to gain credibility as something other than "latte-sipping indie douchebags". Wouldn't surprise me, given their obsession with image.

There's a bunch of records on that list are pretty good but don't really belong on that list. I mean I like The Strokes and The White Stripes but I just can't see them as top 20 of the decade material. They also give Kanye three spots on the list even though he's an average-at-best lyricist who happens to produce some great beats. And, as usual, they basically ignored anything outside of the realm of ultra-hyped indie with the exception of a couple of albums that were clearly added to provide some diversity.

There are maybe 20 albums that I feel belong on this list, the rest is just filler. Just my personal opinion, but pitchfork has a single digit IQ. Pleased about the #1 though :D

pitchfork is great and can generally be trusted to give reliable opinions on stuff. don't say "FUCK PITCHFORK" because they didn't include your favorite album - believe it or not, music taste can be subjective.

This list is ridiculous. How is Amnesiac on this list and Hail to the Thief isn't? How is ( ) lower than Songs for the Deaf? HOW DID VAMPIRE WEEKEND GET IN THE TOP 100? Also, I'm a huge Interpol and White Stripes fan, but how did they get albums in the top 20?

pitchfork is an indie music website, focused on indie music - i don't think they really give a fuck about metal unless its of the "cerebral" type (i.e. mastodon, isis, whatever, i don't know shit about metal). and albums like the white stripes and the strokes are pretty influential in the realm of 21st century indie music

I'm with Rudy on this one. The shitstorm following pitchfork is because a lot of the bands/albums they like are not popular on sputnik, just as a lot of the albums sputnik tends to like are not popular pretty much anywhere else. Even if we like both metal AND indie (and I guess hip hop kind of), our list would probably as predictable as pitchfork's if you've followed both sites for a few years. Circle Takes the Square, Kayo Dot, mewithoutYou, they're pretty much equivalent to stuff no one's heard of that Pitchfork hypes and their followers eat up. They got a lot of the right albums on here considering what they've reviewed favorably and how their tastes generally lie, but it's not like sputnik's all that unpredictable or original or anything

Personally, i didn't agree with their overinclusion of over-hyped generic indie rock bands, but their placement of Kid A, Moon & Antarctica, and a few others made me happy. Overall, a lot of good albums were included, but too many were left off.

I remember that The Blood Brothers' ...Burn, Piano Island, Burn received a high score from Pitchfork, and was included on their Best New Music section, yet that album was not included on this list; the overall lack of post-hardcore is really disheartening.
