So we're nearing the end of another decade. Holy shit, where did it go? Weren't the 90's like yesterday?

As such, my friends and I got discussing our favourites of each decade last week, and though many albums came to mind, narrowing down ten was difficult. It hurts to leave so many out (sorry OK Computer and Kid A), but here are my personal faves.

 

00's

Constantines - Constantines (2001)

Dears - No Cities Left (2003)

Dears - Gang of Losers (2006)

Matthew Good - Avalanche (2003)

Matthew Good - White Light Rock n

I will make my lists later, but I will chime in with this. I really don't agree with Pitchfork's number one album of the 00's. I personally wouldn't even put Kid A it in my top 10. I am really surprised that Funeral wasn't number one. I would say its number one, that or maybe Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Sound of Silver is pretty damn good too.

It was hard for me to choose Mellon Collie over Adore actually. I think Adore is the better album on a whole but Mellon Collie has more variety and is closer to my heart.

 

it's too hard really to do something like this.

 

I left out Sam Roberts, QOTSA, MACHINA, Interpol, Soundgarden, Wu-Tang, Chronic 2001... and on and on and on...

someone likes his lo-fi.

 

this is hard. these lists are by no means final or absolute, but i can stand by them and say that they're at least a decent representation of what i liked from each decade. i listen to way too much music to be able to come up with only 10 albums. i could make 10 lists of 10 and still be happy with each as a representation of what i liked.

 

in no order whatsoever:

 

top 10 90s:

 

blur - parklife

outkast - stankonia

mr bungle - california

beck - one foot in the grave

the roots - things fall apart

massive attack - mezzanine

refused - the shape of punk to come

tool - aenima

drive like jehu - yank crime

the jesus lizard - goat

 

top 10 00s:

 

dirty projectors - rise above

isis - wavering radiant

portishead - third

no age - nouns

tv on the radio - return to cookie mountain

cave in - perfect pitch black

converge - jane doe

unwound - leaves turn inside you

matthew good - avalanche

the new pornographers - twin cinema

I am shocked at the lack of Chromeo's "Fancy Footwork" on here. C'MON PEOPLE! EVERYONE loves Chromeo! It'd be like neglecting Discovery by Daft Punk!

Seriously, if you haven't listened to Tangiers: Never Bring You Pleasure (2004), do yourself an honestagoodness favour and find it.

Screw it, you won't find it... here it is. They've disbanded anyway.

Also, I'd forgotten about Fashion Nugget! Great album

I've seen CAKE live. I expected them to be very good, but I didn't expect it to rank with the best concerts I've seen and it did. It was at a fairly intimate venue and they were just so tight and good. I'll see them again every time they come to Vancouver. Such an underrated band.
