I'm just worried Dalton will immediately illegally download my entire list once I post it just to spite me, that's why I haven't made one.

Well, I think we need to establish whether we only want albums released on an indie label or albums featuring the indie aesthetic. It's a shame, for instance, that I couldn't include Dear Science because they're on Interscope.

2. Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand
3. Modest Mouse - Good News For People Who Love Bad News
4. Rilo Kiley - More Adventurous
5. Interpol - Antics

2005
1. Bloc Party - Silent Alarm
2. Sufjan Stevens - Illinois
3. The Decemberists - Picaresque
4. Sleater-Kinney - The Woods
5. The Hold Steady - Separation Sunday

2006
1. Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
2. The Hold Steady - Boys and Girls in America
3. Lily Allen - Alright, Still
4. Belle & Sebastian - The Life Pursuit
5. TV On the Radio - Return to Cookie Mountain

2007
1. Arctic Monkeys - Favourite Worst Nightmare
2. Okkervil River - The Stage Names

I don't want to think of more than a few years off the top of my head right now. Some of those bands you might not immediately think of as being "indie", but I'm pretty sure all of those albums were released on indie labels. Close enough, anyway. Close counts in horseshoes, hand grenades, and Dalton threads.

Listen douche, I don't steal music. My people don't believe in individual possessions. We hold everything in common.

We're highly functioning communists.

I was thinking only albums that are released on Indie labels, but I'm willing to be flexible. Clearly you know more about this than I do, so I will defer to your thoughts.

It gets more confusing when you have to decide if a label is actually "independent" or just shitty and small.
I'd say that's a pretty good definition. Like impy says below, we do need to decide if we're going to include both aspects of it or not.

My concern would be that if we do music released on indie labels only, we'll leave out some really great albums that still contain the indie spirit and sound indie, but aren't on an indie label.

What does Indie sound like?? Dear Science is a million miles away from say The Wrens Meadowlands.....and The Wrens even have a 'the' name. I debate the existence of an indie sound, a DIY approach to music and a certain aesthetic I can appreciate as being 'indie' but soundwise not really.

There isn't always, but often is a more lo-fi approach to recording, which can give completely different artists a common thread in their sound. But, I guess that would depend on how much you ascribe to that idea too. No matter what, we're not going to figure out a precise definition because there isn't one with indie...it's been debated since the beginning of the whole idea.
