How cute. In the end, you really are a BIG FAN.

Nice to see your inclusion of Oh Mercy.
Sure I'm a big fan. Wouldn't be here if I wasn't. But only of those two particular decades. I've never really wavered from my liking their 80s and 90s stuff, the latter being my favorite era of any band EVAR.

And there was no way I was leaving Oh Mercy off.

I'm going to feel weird about putting No Net on my 00's list, which is a likelihood. I think much of it can go toe-to-toe with the best stuff I've heard this decade, but I doubt any other album on the list will have the glaring flaws that are Stand Up Referee and Cock Crazy.

Of course, I'll be busy getting reamed for including Atomic Serve, so maybe no one will notice.

I wish I had the patience to write this stuff up. Suffice to say that the '60s would have all the relevant Velvets releases, along with as many Beatles albums as would fit, and that the Talking Heads, SFA, and especially Brian Eno would in later decades more than likely be overrepresented. I take these kinds of things way too seriously, ultimately, and writing up a list or lists becomes physically grueling. Ugh. I shudder at so much as the thought. Kudos to the lot of you.

I spent way too much time making my top 50 list in general, and I spend ridiculous amounts of time tweaking it (The file is literally always open on my computer) which is the only reason I came up with a list for this so quickly. Now I find myself going well out of my way to do the best album of each year list and it's not because I have nothing better to do, but that that something better to do is homework.

It was fucking great. Listened to it on my trip from Tallahasee to Orlando, so I can't really remember which tracks were from the album, Bootleg series and other sources... but it all sounded fantastic together and an improvement on the original release.

Dude, I didn't think this would be too hard as it is only 10 from each decade.

Or just pick your fav decade!

It's been fun reading all your lists. Will post mine soon. Have to go thru my itunes by year. lol.

Thanks. I appreciate that. Out of all my album reimaginings, Mo' Mercy is definitely my favorite.
