When their list is finally completed, I will likely return to the thread and write something like "Decent list of albums, though I don't agree with the order", as I will probably write about most all arbitrary "best of 2000's" lists we're all sure to see later this year.

Well, unless it's your own order, you're likely to disagree with it, no? The question is whether they make some boneheaded, inflated placement. We've already seen some boneheaded deflated ones.

I'm pretty sure that the top 5 will be:

1. No Line on the Horizon
2. All That You Can't Leave Behind
3. How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb
4. Viva La Vida
5. We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed

Dalton, do you like Los Campesinos!? I can't recall where your feelings lie, with those kids.

Well, I'll say...there're a few (minor) curveballs, in there:

My kneejerk comments:

 
Haha, fuck Interpol. And HAR-DEE-FUCKING-HAR at Yankoff Motel Cocktrot not even cracking the Top 3!! Bwahahahaha!!

Also, I'll never understand the notion of Kill the Moonlight being Spoon's best.

No way is Is This It a greater accomplishment than White Blood Cells, I don't care what the hell movement it started.

The Blueprint: NICE.

And I'm very, very pleased about Funeral.

I asked this before and received no response: was Hold On Now, Youngster ANYWHERE on this whole list? If not, Pitchfork should be killed. All of them.

I am almost entirely certain that Hold On Now, Youngster... was nowhere on said list. I also don't seem to recall spotting ATD-I's Relationship of Command, which is unspeakable.

So, I've heard 90 of the 200. Not too bad, though I expected at least half.

Good ending to the list, although Stankonia was too low and Discovery was too high.

Fleet Foxes... #1 of 2008, but #32 of the decade? 2008 must've been a bad year for music for the 00s.

Ya, this is why Pitchfork can eat a bag of dicks (the kind that are squashed like chicken cutlets into a plastic bag, not the ones arranged like baguettes in a brown paper bag). Revisionist asshats

We actually hit a lot of that top twenty on the head. Ágætis Byrjun included (GFY, Laz). Moon & Antarctica was a shoo in, don't know how it slipped my mind.

Nice end to the list, anyway. Have never heard the Ghostface record. And I never heard the Avalanches one in its entirety. Heard the other 18 though.

At least some entity agrees with my unabashed Kill the Moonlight love.

I don't think I've listened to Is This It since 2003. Maybe that needs to change.
