I'm honestly quite surprised by the lack of Explosions In The Sky mentions. The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place is sweet.

One of his best. It's that and Flaming Pie as easily the best he's done since 1980 although Tug Of War can fairly receive some nods. His string of solo albums in the 70's is highly underrated and was only eclipsed by Lennon until he started putting out plenty of mediocre releases and Harrison's career ended up stronger on the whole albeit with fewer highlights.

Blacklisted probably would edge its way into a Top 100 from me with the one-album-per-artist rule. One of the best of its year.

EITS are on the outskirts of my list....they would likely be in if I went another 5-10 albums. I will admit, though, that I usually...oh, fuck.....

Add Souvenirs d’un autre monde by Alcest to my list!!!!!!

Oh yes, definitely. I loved Flaming Pie as well. It was a very heartfelt record that contained a shocking lack of filler. McCartney (the album) is a personal favorite of mine, with Every Night being one of my 5 favorite songs by him. Ram is a masterpiece, point blank, and Band On The Run is great fun, though his Wings work is spotty.

While we're on the subject of the New Pornographers, I've got to say that Destroyer's Rubies was pretty damn great. I need to look into more Bejar solo projects.

I'm really pissed about forgetting to include Souvenirs d’un autre monde. If you did not mention EITS, it would not have dawned on me. 2007 was a great year.

and certainly nothing popular could ever be good, so fuck all those people posting albums with singles played on the radio. No true artist would ever dare have their music on the radio. That's why we're all U2 fans, right?

The only truly worthy music of this decade is so good that none of you pathetic lumpens have even heard it. It can only be found on this secret underground website that nobody knows about. I leave you but this miniscule clue: it rhymes with Bitchpork.

and can I just say: Dalton, I like your style.

honestly that's probably my least favourite Explosions album. It's good, of course, but it doesn't really stick with me, it's just kinda background music. the other albums are much more engaging for me. All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone is a masterpiece, and I'm quite a big fan of Those Who Tell The Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell The Truth Shall Live Forever. Greet Death is tied with Catastrophe and the Cure for my favourite Explosions song...can't you just imagine Greet Death at the end of an amazing movie or something... I also love How Strange, Innocence

can't wait to see them at Lolla

Lolla

I cannot believe that I'll be at Lolla, and there will be an explosion that will freak people out....but I'll just calmly say to those around me "Oh, do not worry, that's just Atomic Bono combusting. Rage is on stage, you see. She'll be reincarnated, hopefully".

It's too bad the only album Rage has put out this decade is Renegades, which sucked. The more UNNGHHHH YEA CMONs in this thread, the better.
