Not a good idea. You must not remember what happened the last time someone shouted "show us yer face!" to an unknown:

You guys need to remember that shouters primary criteria for evaluating music is the frat party test. If he can walk into a frat party and shout out the name of an album and no one knows what he's talking about, he likes it. If he shouts Kid A at a frat party there's always that one kid who says, "Oh The Radioheads!"

Fucking legacies.

I still hate the bulk of this album, but thanks for reminding me to listen to "Underwater," "The Same Old Innocence," and "Heart It Races." If I were doing a top songs list, them shits would have to make an appearance, at some point. PERFECT, I say.

Yeah, I don't care for that as a full album either, but there really are a handful of incredible tracks. Great music videos too.

This decade there were four albums that were ahead of the pack and after that I really struggled to do any kind of ranking. The fifth spot could literally change everyday. So here are the top four:

1. A Rush of Blood To The Head by Coldplay
2. Liars by Todd Rundgren
3. Aerial by Kate Bush
4. The Dresden Dolls by The Dresden Dolls


The top five songs would be:

1. God Said by Todd Rundgren
2. Truce by Dresden Dolls
3. Politik by Coldplay
4. Fez-Being Born by U2
5. Aerial by Kate Bush

Raising Sand was admittedly pretty good, but as far as Plant this decade goes, Mighty Rearranger kicks the shit out of it,

i know you do. i think it had something to do with listening to Places Like This before ICWD. there's some filler on it though.

i saw them live last week, they were fucking brilliant, if you ever get the chance.

I'm a bit surprised by that, as well. But, really, none of the four Oasis albums released this decade were any good.

Now, if we were doing a best of the 90s, (What's The Story) Morning Glory? would be pretty high up there, for me. And probably for intedomine as well. I'm assuming.

Well, I know that, but I thought Oasis fans "don't believe the truth", so to speak.

I liked most of their 00s output, overall I probably prefer it to their 90s stuff to be honest. Just not enough to be on the list.
