My vote so far would be:

American Idiot---Green Day
Funeral---The Arcade Fire
Coldplay---A Rush of Blood to the Head

Will wait and see how the new Arcade Fire and Radiohead albums stack up. Both have potential to be on this list.

^ That one almost made my list.

It's certainly one of the best pop albums of the noughties.

Like Lily Allen's new album will be...

Aerial by Kate Bush

There have been a lot of great albums in this decade but this one rises to the top in my book. Superb songwriting with almost every song being among Kate's best. It is an utter masterpeice.

It's very hard to choose. Pure Reason Revolution's The Dark Third, Opeth's Blackwater Park and Ghost Reveries, Agalloch's The Mantle and Ashes Against The Grain, Blackfield II, and Porcupine Tree's In Absentia and Deadwing are all right up there.

I'm gonna have to go with ATYCLB on this one. Yes, I really think it's that good.

Kid A, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, and Funeral are all certainly worthy and I'm glad to see them mentioned multiple times. I'd also throw in Bloc Party's Silent Alarm. I think it's the best debut album since...ever

there are so many other good albums...Interpol's Turn On the Bright Lights, Tool's Lateralus, A Rush of Blood to the Head, Dredg's El Cielo, Hot Fuss, Absolution, Outkast's Speakerboxx/The Love Below (Stankonia is worthy too), Lifted or the Story is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground by Bright Eyes... even HTDAAB maybe...

but for now I'm giving it to ATYCLB. doesn't mean something - from U2 or otherwise - can't top it before the decade's over though

In the circles I normally mix, only Pure Reason Revolution count as obscure.

1) Radiohead's Kid A
2) The Hold Steady's Separation Sunday
3) The Fiery Furnace's Blueberry Boat

I'd just throw my top three into the mix, but my number four is just as loved as Blueberry Boat, so here goes...

4) The Streets' A Grand Don't Come For Free

And for the record, Sea Change has a few good/great songs but is not only tied for being the most boring record ever released by Beck (The Information is just as unlistenably bland)...it's straight-up one of the most boring records I've ever listened to.

And I like Steve Reich, too.

Anyway, it's already been a hell of a decade. When you scrape away all the mis-hyped stuff which actually sucks once you listen to it with a discerning ear (contemporary Beck, The Flaming Lips, Bob Dylan, Red Hot Ass Clowns, MMJ, Coldplay, and all that shit), there are just legions and legions of albums which've been amazing. I chalk most of my listening habits up to the internet and the ways in which it has revolutionized many of our listening habits. Ten years ago, it would have been all but impossible for me ever to have heard of new albums from Deerhoof, Carla Bozulich, Architecture in Helsinki, or especially Xiu Xiu or someone like William Basinski (whose Disintegration Loops may, for my money, be the most concise aural summary of America in this decade). Today, though, thanks to blogs and various online music criticism hubs, it's conceivable to keep up on what's going on in various corners of the musical landscape.

I have loved this decade like few others. There are dozens of albums which could easily take up those number three and four slots on my list, man. Sleater-Kinney has released two masterpieces, Dizzee Rascal's debut was nearly untouchable, ...Trail of Dead's major label debut was PHENOMENAL, and The New Pornographers have made some of the best pop music of the last thirty years. There're just so many great albums even in this, the era of the non-album. I've been wonderfully happy as a music listener. I've always hated a lot more music than I've loved, but I feel like I'm finally getting to the point where I can listen to enough literally to hear only music that I will probably adore.

Hellz yeah, you know?
