1969 and 1971 are better than any of the years Laz listed and he didn't even bother with them.

Kids these days.

Death Magnetic was a fantastic record, the only problem is the production, but that's been talked about to death. For me in 2004, it was either Green Day or Kanye; Green Day got it because I loved that record as a kid so I have some nostalgic attachment to it, even though a lot of the subject matter went right over my head at 10 years old.

I was going to post some favorites from the lists, but I just picked albums I hadn't heard instead. I thought you all might like to know.

I would fucking pay you to listen to The 12th Man.

Also Since I Left You is an absolute masterpiece, and beat out the likes of Stankonia and Parachutes.

1987 doesn't rank highly for me, most of the genres represented that year aren't among my favorites, but I will say that Joshua Tree vs. Sign O The Times was the hardest decision I had to make. Both are top 20 tier albums.

For me, the toughest was 1997: Homogenic vs OK Computer.

Also, 2000: Kid A vs De Stijl. Two very different but equally excellent records.

I actually already have this list compiled from when Zoots did a similar thread way back when, and it's hilariously inaccurate now. Strikethroughs indicate changes. Unfortunate that the year of my birth precludes me from including my favorite year of music:

1987 - The Joshua Tree - U2
1988 - The Land Before Time OST - James Horner
1989 - Disintegration - The Cure

1990 - Heaven or Las Vegas - Cocteau Twins House of Love - House of Love
1991 - Achtung Baby - U2
1992 - Automatic For the People - R.E.M.
1993 - Together Alone - Crowded House
1994 - Wildflowers - Tom Petty
1995 - The Bends - Radiohead Pulp - Different Class
1996 - Crash - Dave Matthews Band
1997 - Pop - U2 Spirtualized - Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space
1998 - The Story of the Ghost - Phish Lucinda Williams - Car Wheels on a Gravel Road
1999 - Rainbow - Mariah Carey Magnetic Fields - 69 Love Songs

2000 - Spiritual Machines - Our Lady Peace Godspeed You Black Emperor! - Lift Yr. Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven!
2001 - The National - The National The Dismemberment Plan - Change
2002 - The Rising - Bruce Springsteen
2003 - The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place - Explosions in the Sky
2004 - Hot Fuss - The Killers
2005 - The Sunset Tree - The Mountain Goats (but damn, this year is deep)
2006 - Eyes Open - Snow Patrol
2007 - Boxer - The National
2008 - For Emma, Forever Ago - Bon Iver
2009 - It's Blitz - Yeah Yeah Yeahs

And that's the end of the original list

2010 - Wild Nothing - Gemini
2011 -
M83 - Hurry Up, We're Dreaming
2012 - Wild Nothing - Nocturne
2013 - Charli XCX - True Romance
2014 - War on Drugs - Lost in the Dream

My favorite year in music is 1985:

On another day I might have put down Pleased To Meet Me instead of The Joshua Tree. The latter is a better album, but I reach for the former more often.

And while Document isn't at the top of my R.E.M. list like it was when I first became a fan, that is one damned great album.
