Rolling Stone's Top 100 Albums and Songs of the Decade & 2009 Poll

Rolling Stone today has posted its top 100 songs and albums of the decade as voted on by various critics and artists. This is different from the reader's poll...which Green Day fan clubs obviously felt very passionate about!!

I felt it deserved it's own thread because it's much more extensive than the reader's poll, it's the legitimate list that wasn't decided upon by the passions of internet fan clubs but reflects the consensus of top critics and artists of the decade...

Here's the list of top 100 albums...

Fucking Radiohead.

No Love for Scarlet's Walk either...I thought that would have made it very low on the list.

Nice list. Aha Shake Heartbreak should have been in the top 10 but Only By the Night should not be on that list. It's the worst pile of crap ever. Well done U2 though!

Agreed, although OBTN wasn't really soooo bad.

Youth and Young Manhood deserves to be higher than it at least.

Maybe the best song on the album? I think so.

This is nice, even when I don't need the "experts" telling me MOS and the album are the best of the year.

LCD Soundsystem was a more important band to the decade than U2?

How many people in the world recognize Beautiful Day?

How many people in the world would recognize any LCD Soundsystem song?

That is just funny.

On the up side, nice to see Arcade Fire and Fleet Foxes on the list. Where are Feist and the Swell Season though?

I think it's quite an impressive list, U2 have 3 albums in the top 100. Even I would have struggled to put Bomb as high as RS did.
