Same here. Kid A is the best Radiohead album of the decade by leaps and bounds.

Other than that I really love your list.
Only By the Night is Kings of Leon's best album, and there's actually some really good songs on there...have you listened to it?

By the way, it fucking bothers me when there is a thread in EYKIW that devolves into discussion of music that isn't U2. We have a whole subforum for this shit, people. It's called "Just the Bang and the Clatter." You should visit it sometime. Have your "Best Album of the Decade" discussions over there...it will make me feel a lot better.

Kings Of Leon's finest work is still barely good enough to earn an honorable mention in the year of its release, let alone the entire decade.

That said, they sold out for Only By The Night. I hate that term, but they did. It's one of those undeniable sellout moments, like when Genesis released Invisible Touch, or Aerosmith released Permanent Vacation. Doesn't make it a bad album, but it sounds plastic, derivative of alternative radio and quite soulless.

First of all, you didn't have to quote that entire ginormous post. Second of all, that album is soulless dross. And, finally, the band is not called The Kings of Leon. It's just Kings of Leon. No "The"

I'm sorry I quoted an entire post...
I'm sorry that I but a "The" in front of Kings of Leon, I often make that mistake...as I tend to accidentally put a "The" in front of Arctic Monkeys as well...(Whatever People Say I Am That's What I'm Not should be included in Mac's list too)

It's my opinion, I think it's a great album..."Crawl" is a kick ass song, and KOL have been steadily improving since their first album...

You don't have to attack everybody who likes Only By The Night...it's far from being a "soulness dross"...I'm curious as to why you don't hate it so much? From what I've read in ur previous posts you have a great taste in music!

Indeed, Crawl is KoL best song yet imo, and the only reason Only by the Night is not in my list is beacuse its last third is really not near as good as the rest. It has several great songs, but it doesn't flow really well as an album I think.
