Okay, so here it is. The list I've been planning for about a year now, but didn't actually compose until I sat down a few nights ago. The toughest process is ranking these records. I love something about every single one here. My list isn't as varied as magazine or online polls, so you're likely to see a lot of artists or bands appear more than once. But then it is just me and all of the albums here have been listened to in a rather ridiculous amount.

    Personally I think the arcade fire album is over-rated... wouldn't be in my top 5. Nice to see some love for Bjork though. And great to see Selmasongs in the list! I'd put her Vespertine album as number 1. I reckon amnesiac to too close to the top and hail to the theif should be in amnesiac's place. But you got it right with the other radiohead albums. surprised that no kings of leon, bloc party but i think you did a good job regardless.

    Never got into KOL or Bloc Party but I can see Silent Alarm is considered one of those amazing albums. Funeral is No.1 for me because it changed how I saw rock/indie music and there's something just so life-affirming about it, plus I bought it the day it came out without having even hearing of them and was completely blown away. Albums like The Reminder by Feist and Cut Copy are in there through personal choices. I tried to be generous to all the music I listened to from the start of the decade. For example, when I was 14 and Survivor by Destiny's Child came out, I thought it was incredible, and it's still a great pop is Fever by Kylie. There should probably be some Kanye West in there somewhere.

    Brilliant list! 'Funeral' blew me away like no other album but my enduring favourite is 'Ys'! I also agree with you that 'In Rainbows' deserves to be ahead of 'Kid A'. Just a quick question, If 'Ágætis byrjun' had of been released in the 00's, where would it have fit in?

    Oooh, good question. Well, for me, Takk was the album that got me into Sigur Ros, so to me it always has a slight edge over Ágætis Byrjun. Having said that, in this list I'd have put it somewhere around No.27. Ys is a somewhat more complex album than Funeral and I think it fascinated me more than Funeral. The top two are almost tied.

    cool list. I hope you didn't spend too long on this, lol. I've decided i'm just going to be lazy and make a list of like 5. easier that way :D but yeah, all those 5 or so on my list are within your top 10. WHICH MEANS WE ARE BOTH REALLY AWESOME.
