If I had to bet on the top 5, I would judge it as follows:

5. Turn on the Bright Lights
4. Person Pitch
3. Funeral
2. Merriweather
1. Kid A

I really have a hard time seeing how Strawberry Jam, Merriweather, and Person Pitch will all be judged superior to In Rainbows, but, having said that, the heavy presence of AC and AC associates in the top 20 was expected.

My prediction of the top 5:

1. Kid A
2. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
3. Stankonia
4. Is This It
5. Turn On The Bright Lights

I can't think of any logical reason for an album that came out in 2009, one that didn't even receive a 10, to be ranked in the top 5 for the decade. Then again, they have their collective head so far up Animal Collective's ass that anything is possible.

While carousing my iTunes, it also occurred to me that there's no way Silent Shout doesn't make the top 20.

And guess what they're counting as a 2000 release: Pitchfork: Album Reviews: Sigur Rós: Agaetis Byrjun

Boo ya.
Cheep-cheep-cheep-cheep...

If Is This It makes the Top 5, I'm throwing a party. If it gets #1, I'm going to throw a naked party.

Has White Blood Cells appeared yet? I see that as a lot more likely to make the Top 10 than Is This It.

Yoshmi Battles The Pink Robots should have been much higher(lower? you know what I mean) than 67. I dare say it's a top 20 record this decade.

Surprised no one's brought up Coldplay...Pitchfork aren't the biggest Coldplay lovers but they don't totally freeze them out either. If nothing else, A Rush Of Blood To The Head could pop up in the top 20.

Two records that won't make the list but that imo should: Norah Jones' Come Away With Me(which nabbed eight grammies and is a beautiful record) and Green Day's American Idiot.

It got a 5.1 rating, so unless they do an Andrew WK like flip-flop, A Rush of Blood has no chance.

American Idiot? Really?

Yes, American Idiot...I don't mean necessarily top 20, I just mean it should've in the top 200. There are some catchy-as-hell rock songs on there, imo.

More importantly, I just realized that there is not yet any Muse on this list. Absolution should be a top 20 record.

I'm not sure you have a very good grasp of this whole Pitchfork thing if you think a Coldplay album has a chance of popping up on the Top 20. And Muse? Are you saying you think Muse's Absolution deserves to be in the Top 20, or that it has a shot at making the Top 20?

Deserves.

Deserve's got nothing to do with it.

Yeah, going by Pitchfork's ratings, those albums have no chance on their list.

However, you'll see A Rush Of Blood and American Idiot on quite a few other best of decade lists as more of these come out.

It's not enough to make their list, but Pitchfork gave that record a 7.2, or something like that, if I remember correctly.

Which is impressive for Pitchfork.

Yeah, Pitchfork does not hold Muse in high esteem. The reviews for both Absolution and Black Holes were considerably more vitriolic than the raw scores suggested.
