Title: Favorite albums of the 2010s?
Post by: bitter much on September 30, 2019, 10:16:33 pm
I think the decade is ending....what are your absolute favorites that were released 2010-2019? Albums that you consider classics and recommend for those that might have missed them

I will try to come up with a few...

Mudcrutch 2
Underworld - Barbara
Phoenix - Ti Amo
Arctic Monkeys- the last one
Beck - morning phase
David Lowery - the palace guards
Lucinda Williams- Ghosts of highway 20
Leonard Cohen - You want it darker
Yo la tengo - Thereís a riot
Nick Cave - Push the sky away
Andres Calamaro - Bohemio
New Order - Complete
Dr John - Locked down
Daft Punk - RAM
Pet Shop Boys - Electric
Babasonicos- A proposito
King Gizzard - Nonagon

I think Leonard Cohenís is probably the best new thing I heard this decade...

This thread shall reinforce my argument for "best of" lists.

The true litmus test for best of is if you're still listening to an album years later and not just that year. This may take a while but there are prob. very few albums from 2010 until now that I listen to on a regular basis. BRB.

Well my criteria was exactly that: have I gone back years later and still really enjoyed it?

That is also why there are less albums from the second half of the decade since there hasnít been enough time


What I donít want is a kill sally style list of 500 albums I enjoyed once

Title: Re: Favorite albums of the 2010s?
Post by: Heilung4eva on October 01, 2019, 04:52:18 pm
Worth considering:
Gangnam Style
Pen Pineapple Apple Pen
Old Town Road
Baby Shark
Cotton Eye Joe (Dance Remix)

For $9.99 a month, you'd never have to buy a CD again.

What is a reasonable list length? I have 43 artists, some with multiple albums.

That's like a kilsaly list, except with band you've heard of.

Need to whittle it down some....

This, is the album, that changed my everything.  As when, I was first introduced to the Dead Kennedys back in 1985, this band and this one particular album . . . proved to me that music can change your life.

Women played a big role this decade for me

random order

Sky Ferreira - Ghost
Lana del ray - Born to Die
Lucy dacus - no burden
Julian baker - Sprained Ankle
Bleached - Don't you think you've had enough
Whitney - light upon the lake
Big Thief - Capacity
A giant dog - Toy
Better Oblivion Community Center - Better Oblivion Community Center
Frank Turner - Tape Deck Heart
Lorde - Pure Heroine
Jason Isabell - southeastern
King Khan and the shrines - Idle No More
Girls - Father Son and the holy ghost
Nick Cave - Push the sky away

Edit..forgot a few good ones
Sturgill Simpson - metamodern sounds in country music
Courtney Barnett - The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas


Honorable mention
King Kruel - six feet beneath the moon
Superorganism -Superorganism
Mowgli's - Waiting for the dawn
Houndmouth - little neon limelight
Spirit Family Reunion - No Separation
Black Joe Lewis - Scandalous
The sufferers - the sufferers
Haim - Days Are Gone
David Bowie - Blackstar


Except for LDR and Girls (who had already broken up) I'd seen all of these artist's live multiple times in this decade

Of my concerts in the decade, there was a really high nostalgia rock quotient, but feel I kept up a little with the youth of today

https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/qvg5j3/the-100-best-albums-of-the-2010s

have to say...I sometimes feel I'm intouch with the music scene
I think I've only listened to less than 5% of this list and close to 2/3rds I'd never even heard of

Its a weird decade for music
I'm curious how we'll look back in 20 years
