PostYour Top Ten Albums of the Decade
by Drumstick » Mon Dec 30, 2019 10:36 am

As we close the door on the 2010s, let’s gather around and discuss our favourite albums released during this decade. Everyone loves lists, so let’s have your top ten (or top twenty, perhaps).

I don’t have a helpful link because I couldn’t locate a balanced list which considered all genres.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I’ve tried to keep it to one per band, so High Violet, Every Country’s Sun and Reflektor had to be cut, sadly.

1. Trouble Will Find Me - The National
2. Currents - Tame Impala
3. The Suburbs - Arcade Fire
4. Bon Iver - Bon Iver
5. Rave Tapes - Mogwai
6. Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming - M83
7. The Hunter - Mastodon
8. Rammstein - Rammstein
9. Odd Blood - Yeasayer
10. Strangers to Ourselves - Modest Mouse
11. Dangerous Days - Perturbator :shifty:
12. Singles - Future Islands

Problem I’ve had recently is that I’ve become a bit resistant to change and new albums/musical styles, so I’ve wound up listening to a lot of the same bands, and a lot of older music.

State of these lists. :dread:

This is explaining a lot about the current eliminator.

I would but the Mamma Mia! 2 soundtrack doesn't really constitute a "list" ;)

In all honesty I need to have a think and I think I'm going to be similar to you in that I've become somewhat resistant to new stuff so my list will be recent albums from artists from last 90s/00s rather than much "new" music.

really hard not to let more recent plays bias my memory - i checked last.fm to see what i was playing heavily in 2010-2016 or so. not in any order:

a. flying lotus - cosmogramma
i played this almost constantly back when it came out. feels like youre on a glorious drug trip without taking anything

b. damu the fudgemunk - how it should sound 1&2
brilliant ny production

c. freddie gibbs & madlib - bandana / pinata
how can i choose between these - pinata was freddie adapting to madlib, bandana was madlib adapting to freddie. peerless.

d. tour de manege - all of their projects this decade, they killed it
basically you could put on any of their projects from this decade and it was perfect background/mood music for anything you were doing.

e. rustie - glass swords
my most played record from when i was heavily into glitch-hop/electronic stuff. hudson mohawke is up there but this ended up being my favourite.

f. deathspell omega - paracletus
is there a better experimental-metal band this decade? maybe Portal?

g. mastodon - the hunter
imo the last hurrah of middle period Mastodon. still a very good rock-metal record.

h. denzel curry - imperial / taboo / zuu
dont make me choose! best rap solo artist this decade.

i. charli xcx - charli
this is the best pop album of the decade

j. key! & kenny beats - 777
criminally underrated, almost perfect. has two of the best songs of the decade on it (demolition 1&2 and love on ice)

k. kids see ghosts - s/t
im not a big kid cudi fan or a big kanye west fan. says it all about how good this is.

l. danny brown - atrocity exhibition
you know how cosmogramma is a trip without drugs? this is the bad trip without drugs.

m. run the jewels - rtj 1 / 2 / 3
basically freddie & madlib vs mike and el-p for duo of the decade

n. rico nasty - nasty / anger management
love to see an excellent female rapper get successful without being sexual or riding coattails, just being incredible and mad.

o. dday one - loop extensions
brilliant off-beat kooky instrumentals. released a few excellent records this decade.

p. sleigh bells - treats
apparently i played this a lot, it is definitely different!

q. freddie gibbs - shadow of a doubt / freddie
coinciding with his collabortations with madlib, gibbs has been steadily improving and these two solo projects were excellent. Freddie is the car-album par excellence

r. blut aus nord - 777 sect(s)
basically on here for Epitome II - what a song

s. sophie - oil of every pearl's un-insides
Charli is the accessible pop-album of the decade, this is the more experimental pop album of the decade

t. janelle monae - dirty computer
her crowning moment after some excellent r&b projects leading up to it

I’d probably put these in mine also, but replace Atrocity Exhibition with Old.

Also, I’m not even a Kanye fan but MBDTF is sublime.

Just had a look through my Spotify and there's precisely ten albums I have live liked this decade. A lot of my go to artists have produced stuff I didn't like all that much.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.
