Slanted and Enchanted at #10? Come on you Spin motherfuckers, the only thing worthwhile on that album is "In The Mouth A Desert".

What a horrible list.

I mean, cohesion only counts for so much.

Graduation would be the next on the list, but its peaks are considerably higher.

For starters. Loretta's Scars and Two States are two other standouts.

While S&E is probably my least favorite Pavement album, to deny its importance or placement on a list like this...no.

Maybe I need to go back and listen to MBDTF While I enjoyed a lot about the record, I also remember it sounding kinda... bloated?? I dunno, but some of the tracks seemed to overstay their welcome lol

My favorite Kanye album is still Late Registration (including Gold Digger)

I didn't like it much when it was first released. But I'd say it'd be close to my number one album of the decade so far now.

Well shit, now I feel like I should really check out The National (I know they get a lot of love around here, but for whatever reason I just never sought the group out)

My favorite of the decade? Not sure... but I do know that I'm a little upset w/ Spin's lack of Waltz for Koop I guess it's just one of those instances where an album plays such a strong role in one's life that the person expects numerous others to equally be affected by it... but alas, that is not the case. It happens

It was actually a typo, it's meant to be 'Naked and Sacred'.

Kinda surprised Achtung Baby, which was #1 on their 1985-2010 list, fell so much.

You took the words right out of my mouth. I looked through my older magazines collection and found this issue. It's shocking how the tides have turned so quickly towards U2. Personally, the 1985-2010 list was better.
