OK so without any further explanation, here are my favourite records of the past decade for your entertainment and ridicule. I’d love to hear what you would include instead…

Heartbreaker – Ryan Adams (2000)

Time (The Revelator) – Gillian Welch (2001)

American IV: The Man Comes Around – Johnny Cash (2002)

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot – Wilco (2002)

Ohio – Over the Rhine (2003)

Illinois – Sufjan Stevens (2005)

I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning – Bright Eyes (2005)

Our Endless Numbered Days – Iron and Wine (2005)

Songs from the Deep Forest – Duke Special (2006)

 Boxer – The National (2007)

Happy Christmas everyone!

    happy Christmas. respect, it would kill me with stress to do a top 10 of the decade.

  2. Go on QM – I dare you to tackle it. I’d love to see your list. Have you at least done best of 2009?

    Happy Christmas to you and the family too…

    For me personally, Illinois by Sufjan was the standout album of the decade by a country mile. It is also pretty inconceivable to not include either Boxer and Heartbreaker, so I salute you. So, I will avoid repitition with some of my own choices:

    Home – Peter Broderick (2008)

    Black Sheep Boy – Okkervil River (2008)

    Eveningland – HEM (2004)

    Alice – Tom Waits (2002)

    Glory Hope Mountain – The Acorn (2008)

    Damaged – Lambchop (2006)

    Prairie Wind – Neil Young (2005)

    For Emma, Forever Ago – Bon Iver (2008)

    Tonight at the Arizona – The Felice Brothers (2007)

    Peace to you at the end of 2009…

    On the commercial front Arcade Fire’s debut Funeral (2004) was outstanding. Under the radar for me is David Ford’s Songs for the Road (2007).

    Off to check a couple of new (old) artists; thanks gents.
