GAF, burn P-Fork HQ to the fucking ground. I'll pay you back for the matches and gasoline.
At the end of the day, who gives a fuck......but, yeah, that album is fucking fantastic.

Actually have heard seven of those 50 albums, half of them are overhyped as hell but whatever

Seeing No Age even mentioned makes me remember how they made my ears bleed when I saw them live

Eh, this list is crappy. A number of these artists define pleasant but unspectacular (Postal Service, Feist, Band Of Horses), Saturdays=Youth ranked higher than Dead Cities is surreal, and Andrew WK made me laugh out loud. Top 500 tracks was better.

Also, what earned this decade a list that's 100 albums longer than the previous three decades?

Probably because it is Pitchfork's first full decade of existence.

But is this list celebrating Pitchfork or the music they critique?

Don't mean to nitpick, it just makes this feel different from the previous lists. It feels more carelessly put together this time around, which I suppose tends to happen when you have a larger canvas in front of you.

Oh, I agree. But I think because they were around for an entire decade, they've reviewed a lot more stuff. Hence the longer list.

I don't think it seems carelessly put together at all. Everything about the list seems right out of their playbook, if you ask me.

Source Tags & Codes getting a 10.0 and coming in at 100? Insert your own decimal point joke here.

Nice to see Girls Can Tell get a nod, what with it being the shit and all.


There's some real hot shit in this portion of the list. But I'm really surprised Yellow House wasn't put way, way higher.

Seriously? Okay, putting that album on there completely undercuts this entire list.
