    Default so... we are halfway through the 2010s...

    We are five years into this decade. What are your favorite albums from the 2010s so far?

    I'm encouraging this thread to have discussion as well as list submissions.

    List submission rules:
    Post your top 25 albums of the decade so far (2010-2014). Number your albums in order from 1-25.

    Your #1 album will be equal to 25 points.
    Your #2 album will be equal to 24 points.
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    Your #25 album will be equal to 1 point.

    • If you want to just post a top 10, or a list less than 25, that's okay. Your #1 album will still count for 25 points and so on and so forth.
    • If you post and want to edit your list at all, that's fine, but PLEASE ALERT ME IF AND WHEN YOU EDIT YOUR LIST.
    • All are encouraged to post. The more the merrier.
    • I will collect and tally everyone's lists together and then ultimately post our cumulative list that represents the board.


    I'd love to give as many boardies as possible as much time as possible to submit, so let's put the deadline at a few weeks from now and say...
    Official lists are due by end of day Sunday, March 8th.

    This thread is his way of making up for it

    This will be fun, although narrowing it to 25 will be quite the challenge!

    Yeah I got a little busy in December and didn't know if I could pull it together. I'll plan for it for this year though.

    Also, maybe when this one is done I'll start one for songs of the decade. "The Suburbs" would be near the top for me.

    Interesting...small sample pool, but not one top 25 mention of Channel Orange, which sits number two on decade at acclaimedmusic.net.

    Not surprised though, it's an excellent album, but always felt there was a huge "Dances With Wolves" perfect cultural timing about it that exceeded the album's actual merit. Hit right when the nations general attitude towards LGBT community was going through a seismic shift. My guess is it will continue to move down as time goes on...still make lists, but probably in the 20-50 range at decades end rather than top 10ish material.

    It's been awhile. I'm excited to see your list. And if you haven't checked out that SubRosa record, I think you'll find a lot to dig there. Nominally metal, but so much more than what any non-metal head would expect.

    It was interesting looking back at old year-end lists, these are nearly all the top 5 from those years but in different order. Definitely some albums that since their respective years have gone up and down in favor.
    5/01 - Sleater-Kinney - Palladium
    5/03 - Lightning Bolt/Liturgy - Echoplex
    5/05 - Thee Oh Sees - The Smell

    I'm surprised and happy to see Teen Dream on so many lists. That is my clear-cut #1.
