wink The Big 50 ~ List your 10 favourite albums from each decade, 60's to now!

We can do this in a couple of different ways to make it more interesting:

List your 10 favourites each from 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and 00's but every single year of the decade does not need to be represented.

OR

List your 10 favourites from 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and 00's but every single year of the decade needs to be represented.

Artists may be repeated as many times as you like.


Btw, I said Big 50 but if you don't want to bother with too many decades, you can also simply pick one decade, I guess your favourite, and list your personal Top 10.

Have fun! I'll post mine a bit later.


Also, just so we are all on the same page...

60's = 1960 - 69
70's = 1970 - 79

and so on.

I already had the list elsewhere, a bit out of date though forgot to add in Broken Social Scene's self titled sorry Bloc Party

Yup ( ) has always been a personal favourite of mine since I first heard it, Takk... is great though several songs on it are the reason I got into Sigur Rós

Not in the U.S., buddy. It was Rolling Stones' #1 album of the 80's and is widely considered to be from that decade. You think you can pull rank on them?

I'm not doing the Naughts as they're not over yet.

I had the hardest time with the 70's and the 90's. I probably could have included Cockropa and Poppycock in the latter list but I felt it would be a bit too boring.

*The version I have includes the bonus Fairfax High, a second full-length disc of new material. I probably wouldn't include just the album itself on this list.
