Favorite albums of the 2010s?
« 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...

Ok I start...I spent most of the decade listening to older music but there were some I really loved



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
LCD Soundsystem - This is


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

I have to say not including Díangelo on my own list was an omission

Acclaimed music which is an aggregator but seems to have stopped in 2018

Pitchfork has spoken

https://pitchfork.com/features/lists-and-guides/the-200-best-albums-of-the-2010s/

I think I own 23 of these if o count my daughter's Taylor Swift albin, which I paid for. How am I doing!

I'm legitimately stunned its that high, even if you take away the TSwifties.

I'm utterly shocked that Space still buys CDs when he could be contributing to his 401k or his child's 529.
