Extremely solid list there, Impy. Also, I'm pleased to see that I'm not the only (potentially) insane one to put Bitte Orca in the top 10.

I'm shocked that Meadowland by The Wrens has only been listed once (thank you, 1bloodz). Regardless, good listz by everyone. I find it's easy to over-include recent-years albums on lists like these, as they're on your mind. I'm trying to avoid that.

I was pretty surprised by that too, although I expect to see it on yours and Shouter's lists yet. Completely agreed on the over-including recent albums, and it was something I was consciously trying to avoid as well, while still being true to my overall tastes throughout the decade. Because I'm a complete nerd, my spreadsheet has the year of release for each album listed next to it, and after breaking it down, I had a 60/40 split, favoring albums from 2005-2009.

And, where is your list anyway, Scumbo?

I'm beginning work on my list today. A bad hangover prevented work on it yesterday.

I still need to hop into that Blueberry Boat, so to speak. It's been on the back burner for way too long now.

Good stuff, there's plenty on there I'll have to check out now (including, like Impy, Blueberry Boat, since it's been on my radar for awhile now). I sense a large Okkervil River-shaped gap in there though.

Holy crap, I swear I had BSB and Stage Names in there right up top! Must have accidentally deleted. They're there now.
