I can't help but feel that you're being a little conservative here.

Big ups for putting the Strokes at #2 - that album is pure brilliance. U2's rankings look about right. The Killers continue to be the most underrated rock band out there, IMO.

Decent list... I'd say about a quarter of them deserve to be there, a quarter of them are good but not quite top 100 good, and the rest either I don't know or are not that good. Also a decent amount of variety though anything heavy (metal, hardcore, etc) is completely ignored...oh well, I guess there are other music magazines for that kind of music.

if bob dylan has 2 albums in the top 11 of this decade then that's how you know it's been an awful decade for music.

love and theft deserves a top 20 spot at the very least.

...or how amazing Dylan has been this late in his career?

But hey, why take my word for it? The most comprehensive critics poll in the U.S. (the Village Voice's Pazz & Jop poll) awarded first place to Modern Times and Love & Theft in their respective years. And if you think the poll is somehow slanted towards old school artists, here are the winners from the past 15 years:

1995 - PJ Harvey - To Bring You My Love
1996 - Beck - Odelay
1997 - Bob Dylan - Time Out of Mind
1998 - Lucinda Williams - Car Wheels on a Gravel Road
1999 - Moby - Play
2000 - OutKast - Stankonia
2001 - Bob Dylan - Love and Theft
2002 - Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
2003 - OutKast - Speakerboxxx/The Love Below
2004 - Kanye West - The College Dropout
2005 - Kanye West - Late Registration
2006 - Bob Dylan - Modern Times
2007 - LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver
2008 - TV on the Radio - Dear Science

It's a boring list put together by boring people who are into boring music.

LCD Soundsystem and TV on the Radio are boring? That's news to me. I had been under the impression that they were all sorts of awesome up until this revelation.

Looks to me like a pretty diverse list from a voting body representing a magazine that doesn't purport itself to be anything outside the mainstream.

It doesn't include much from the early 1990s, I'll concede.

I'm not, never liked Love & Theft always thought it was one of Dylan's weakest. Modern Times on the other hand, great album

Anyway naturally it's an awful list but what do you expect?

It's a pretty typical Rolling Stone type of list, I guess, on the whole. By default it can't help but include some very substantial records of the decade, thankfully. It also includes a lot of dross. None of the three U2 albums, as the other poster noted, have any business being there.

I didn't check but is the National included on that list, at all?

Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, they're not.

Yeah, so I see. Well that's an omission right there.

Also, I am not a fan of including every release by a band just because the magazine decides said band is significant.

Radiohead: I actually quite like Hail to the Thief, but there are 100 spots on that list. It shouldn't be there.

Anything by Kings of Leon. Honestly, fuck off! Never mind what appears to be their entire back catalogue.

How you can talk about this decade...and completely shut out the Foo Fighters...makes this list ludicrous and irrelevant IMO. One by One , In Your Honor, and Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace all deserve to be there, and In Your Honor should be top 5.

Then again, should I be surprised? To quote a compelling line from Almost Famous, "...But it's Rolling Stone. He looks harmless, but he does represent the magazine that trashed '' Layla''...broke up Cream, ripped every album Led Zeppelin ever made." Enough said.
