I need to get that album. I have the cover of Maggie's Farm, which is fuckin killer, and Renegades of Funk is cool. However I'm guessing the rest isn't up to par? A whole covers album wasn't really necessary imo...

also they def should have put Fuck Tha Police on there.

I like Renegades of Funk, though.

I really am excited to see them Live. I'm not a huge fan, but, I am ready to rock the fuck out. Lolla should be good. Everyone should come to Chicago for the three days.

Oh man, the Street Fighting Man cover is hilarious. Definitely not a great outing from them.

If you want to count it, the 2003 live album was pretty great.

You can't go wrong with Rage...unless it gets overly political...and then you're in a conundrum, because it's all overly political...but it rocks the fuck out...and isn't that what it's all about......even Renegades.

correct.

They're a band whose name describes exactly the music they play, and they never deviated from it. Some bands can suffer from having essentially the same sound forever, but it absolutely works for them.

UNGH

I tried to get into Interpol. I really liked the first song of theirs I found on YouTube (Slow Hands), sadly by song number three I was already bored with them. I think most of the boredom had to do with their singer - vocals are often a make-or-break thing for me and his just don't sustain my interest; too bland and robotic.

Not only that, but how dare people go on about the same old stale English-speaking scene when there's some true cutting-edge music happening in Zimbabwe,

Sarcasm aside, no matter how much new music a person, or entire staff of Pitchfork, listens to in a year, they still can only possibly access a tiny little sliver of all new music that's out there, every year. So all this chest-puffing about listening to 150 records a year as opposed to 15 is IMO pretty silly.

I'd like to belatedly add "Meadowlands" by The Wrens to my list.

I still don't quite get how you need Pitchfork to find the stuff you really like. I mean, if you really like something, you can remember that, right?

Anyway, thanks for the edited list.

Agreed. That's probably because a lot of these ended up being name dropped everywhere or earned a ton of press.
So with that list you're just as bad as you claim others are. You listed your top 20 albums and they feature some major artists. So solely judging from your list and based on your criteria, you don't listen to a lot of modern music.
Since you claim you do, it seems that a lot of the excellent albums you list still get picked up by a wider audience (I wouldn't call it the mainstream, because even though we're all fans of one of the biggest rock bands in this world, the people in BandC usually have a wider interest and are more prone to checking out some indie stuff). And that the albums that don't make your top 20, while probably very good, are not good enough for a top 20 of the decade's best. Maybe others have heard those indie albums too and also decided they don't merit inclusion in that list. And then you're back again at a list from which you can deduct no more than that those are the top albums for that person.

U2 - All That You Can't Leave Behind (probably my #1 of the decade, my second favorite album from my second favorite band)
How anybody can list so many albums that are generally unheard of to the common populace and still include the most watered down album at #1 with a ballad as self helpish and adult contemporary as Stuck In A Moment is beyond me. It almost seems like a crime to me like how you feel about Killers or Bruce inclusions. Not that I don't like ATYCLB but I'm amazed how U2 fans even listen to so much indie music... this is U2 we're talking about!
