I read this like five times and I'm still not sure what you're trying to say about Lance's list.

I read that one time and thought you were talking about Lance's fist. So I'm right there with you.

Well, I know you're all anticipating my list on the decade (/sarcasm), but it may take some time since I've decided to do my 2009 wrap-up first. I'm hoping I finish a top albums list for THE OH NINE! by the end of the evening (doubtful). We shall see about the PFan Decadium.

Hey, he has Sound of Silver and Alligator on that list, and they're definitely top albums for this decade. Not to mention Kid A and Fleet Foxes also being outstanding.

Couldn't disagree more, but I was just giving him shit. It's all good, I reckon. The only record on that list that I don't actively dislike is Kid A, but that doesn't make it a bad list. It just makes it a bad list for me.

I'm surprised you dislike those albums. I thought they were universally loved around here.

Honestly, my least favorite of the four I mentioned is Kid A.

Oh, there's plenty of love (saw them live a few weeks ago and Carol is still ). But I have to admit I don't have many of their albums yet (and Palomine was released 18 years ago, so not in this decade). Their only album of this decade that I have is Bare Stripped Naked, but I only got that one a few weeks ago and haven't listened to it that much yet. So it's too early for me to say if it's one of this decade's best.

I did see you included Log 22 on your list, so an for that one.

Yeah their work this decade has been fairly maligned, but I think Log 22 is pretty amazing. It's all over the place, kind of their "White Album" in a way, but so rewarding in its diversity. The song White Dogs is an epic, Velvet Underground-inspired masterpiece, and one of my favs by the band.

Private Suit is another very good album from this decade, but a little mellower overall.

well it's the list you were all waiting for. i was 9 years old at the start of the decade. not really definitive, as i tried to rank them (iTunes tells me i've heard about 45 00 albums in all).

15. Red Hot Chili Peppers - By the Way (2002)
14. Coldplay - Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends (2008)
13. Architecture in Helsinki - Places Like This (2007)
12. Coldplay - A Rush of Blood to the Head (2002)
11. The Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots (2002)
10. Radiohead - Kid A (2000)
9. Hot Chip - The Warning (2006)
8. OutKast - Speakerboxxx/The Love Below (2003)
7. U2 - No Line on the Horizon (2009)
6. The Flaming Lips - Embryonic (2009)
5. Bloc Party - Silent Alarm (2005)
4. Paul Dempsey - Everything is True (2009)
3. Coldplay - Parachutes (2000)
2. U2 - All That You Can't Leave Behind (2000)
1. Radiohead - In Rainbows (2007)

a very honourable mention for The Marshall Mathers LP.

After much deliberation, I decided all I can do is a top three.

1. Radiohead – In Rainbows
2. The National – Alligator
3. The White Stripes – Elephant

I'm having a lot of trouble doing anything past that. That's what you'll get.
