I haven't heard Smile, but Kid A is on there.

It's Brian Wilson's "Chinese Democracy" right?

I like him and the Beach Boys, I just never got around to listening to Smile.

Why be so condescending?

'never got around to' can't be an excuse

I don't know if you can decide on a Best Album of the Decade until it's over, not just because of what may come out in the next 3 years (we do have at least one more U2 and Radiohead record coming out), but also in terms of how well all these respective albums age. I love Funeral too, but it just came out a couple years ago. Will it be as strong in 2010?

Here's a shortlist of contenders that I won't bother to rank:

PJ Harvey, Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea
The Arcade Fire, Funeral
U2, How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb
Radiohead, Amnesiac
Super Furry Animals, Rings Around the World
Bob Dylan, Love and Theft
Sleater-Kinney, One Beat

Best of the decade thus far:

1. Kid A - Radiohead
2. The Fitzgerald - Richmond Fontaine
3. The Gulag Orkestar - Beirut
4. Is This It - The Strokes
5. Funeral - Arcade Fire

And an honourable mention for:
Hail to the Thief (Radiohead)
Amassakoul (Tinariwen)
AwCmon (Lambchop)
Youth And Young Manhood (Kings Of Leon)
Takk... (Sigur Ros)
Jacksonville City Nights (Ryan Adams and the Cardinals)
Illinois (Sufjan Stevens)

It's been a good decade thus far.

Listening to Neon Bible, yeah baby!! Looks like a pretty strong contender. Funeral was much more catchy, but I think NB is more mature and flows better.

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.
We have a winner
