    this kind of coincides with a thread asking who will be remembered from this decade, but what i ask is what the best albums of the decade are.

    here's how it works. the voting will close in one week's time, and from there they will be counted (gr8 procrastinating). from this, the top ten albums will be placed in a poll on a seperate thread, and from there, we will find out - i know only technically so - what tsr's favourite ten albums of the decade are. if you don't want to name ten albums as you can't think of enough etc, you don't have to. it's obv advised though.

    i know there's six months left, but to all of those who say 'what if there's a masterpiece like aRtIk mYnKeEz NEw LbUM?', i would argue that an album doesn't really become that great to you in that short space of time. indeed, i still don't know what my favourite albums from the first half of the decade are - i feel somewhat that not enough time has passed. but anyways.

    happy voting. and on a point of information, there will be similar threads in the books section and films section.

    Lily Allen - Alright, Still.


    When it was first released, I thought it was masterful, and its much better than her 2nd album.

    Also,:

    Kanye West - College Dropout

    Kings of Leon - Because of the Times

    The Killers - Hot Fuss

    The Enemy - We'll live and die in these towns

    Keane - Hopes and Fears

    The Kooks - Inside in, Inside out



    No way would they be the top 7 albums of this decade, obviously. It's just they're the albums I enjoy listening to most. Plus, I only really got into music the past 3 years.
