    I think we need to wait until the months are up. There are some albums I’m still warming up to make a final decision. It’s not the end of the decade just yet.

    If you are in the US, vote! It’s important if live in the following swing states: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Ohio, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.

    Blonde and To Pimp A Butterfly are my album of the decade. I feel that I can go back to both a get something new out of the albums. I will come out with my 10/10 list rankings when the decade comes to a close. But yeah. 🙂

    I am going to lean towards pop music for this list at the moment, some of mine:

    21 by Adele: A beautiful record. Adele’s vocals are some of the best in pop music. The songs have great lyrics that paint a tale of a emotional and devastating breakup. Rolling in the Deep is one of the most creative and unique pop singles of the decade. Someone Like You is a modern day classic ballad. One and Only, Turning,  Set Fire to the Rain are all great jams, roaring vocals and catchy chorus with powerful lyrics.

    Night Visions by Imagine Dragons: I want to make it very clear, this band sucks now and is producing some of the most generic music in the business. But this first album is fantastic and one of the best rock pop infused records of the decade. Dan Reynolds as soaring vocals that are great at capturing emotions. Radioactive is a song that makes you want to fight. On Top of the World just makes me feel happy. It’s Time is one of those songs you want to stand on a rooftop and belt. This is a album that showed so much promise that never came to be.

    Rainbow by Kesha: I love this record. It is filled with pure emotion. Praying is one of the best tearjerker songs of the decade. Learn to Let Go is a jam. And Rainbow is my favorite song on the album, it is such a anthem.

    Born to Die by Lana Del Rey: Beautiful vocals. Haunting melodies. Powerful lyrics. Video Games and Born to Die are going to go down as classic songs despite not being actual hits.

    Cuz I Love You (Deluxe) by Lizzo: Truth Hurts, Water Me, and Jucie are some of the best and most feel good anthems this decade has to offer. Very few artist make music as happy and fun as Lizzo that just makes you feel good. People are going to be listening to these hits for a long long time.

    24k Magic by Bruno Mars: Both of his throwback records are two of the best party record of the decade. These songs are so much fun. That’s What I Like can immediately get every person in a room singing along. And Finesse is one of the best 80s throwback jams in a decade filled with 80s throwback jams.

    Outside of pop records, I am very fond of the following:

    My Head Is an Animal by Of Monsters and Men: In a decade with a lot of folk rock making its way into the mainstream (Mumford & Sons, Lumineers, Passenger), this is the best one. And it produced some of the best music videos to.

    Same Trailer Different Park by Kacey Musgraves: The best country record of the decade. Amazing lyrics.

    Hozier by Hozier: I love this album. This man has one of the most beautiful voices. His songs are filled with lust, passion, and emotion.

    My Top 100 of the decade (so far) has a lot of the usual suspects (Blonde, MBDTF, Carrie & Lowell, etc.) so I wanted to lend some praise to some that either I haven’t praised enough, or which I’ve seen sadly overlooked:

    This is Happening by LCD Soundsystem: Fantastic dance-punk record that reminds me of the best of what I love of new wave. Fresh and vibrant with melancholic undercurrents. Unlike Swans (who I’ve never had passion for) none of these long songs ever wears out its welcome to me. “Home” and “I Can Change” are masterpieces.

    The Rip Tide by Beirut: Like a free trip to the beautiful, historical Europe you only see in foreign art films. Beirut will never be the band that makes it to mainstream radio but it never needs to. I love the brass, Zach Condon’s lonesome voice, the color and tone. Pure heartache music.

    The Money Store by Death Grips: Ballsy, noisy, and nasty. Apocalyptic chart-toppers. You can’t remember what people say but you remember how they make you feel, and MC Ride might be unintelligible as all hell for most of the time, but I remember that he makes me want to punch grandmas in the supermarket. Fresh and energetic, overwhelming production, doesn’t let up until the record stops.

    A Crow Looked At Me by Mount Eerie: One of the most depressing albums ever made. Have you ever been cornered by a mourner at a funeral who rambles on, shell-shocked, about some anecdote involving the deceased and all you can do is just let them talk? A whole album of that. Objectively there’s nothing to this album — Elverum’s dull voice, an afterthought of guitar work, some scant percussion — but it’s impossible to stop, no matter the tears and empty feelings it brings. It really does feel like you’re grieving his late wife along with him.

    Benji by Sun Kil Moon: Depressing subject matter like Mount Eerie’s album, yet the frank, honest presentation of it makes it sound more like what it actually is: truth, the true stories of people living and dying in working-class Ohio. Emphasis on the dying. Yet somehow it’s the most beautiful and life-affirming albums of the decade. “Carissa” is one of the greatest songs of the decade.

    Get Better by Bad Sounds: An enormously overlooked album by a little-known English band, making it my ultimate indie pick. Effortless genre-mashing, bright brass, just fun, high-energy funky vibes bringing to life anecdotes from the group’s day-to-day lives. Infectious set of ear worms.

    Body Music by AlunaGeorge: In another life the’d be one of the biggest pop acts, yet are sadly mostly known stateside for a (tbh great) DJ Snake remix. An excellent duo that brings out the best in each other, alluring pop vocals and winning production. “Your Drums, Your Love” should have been everywhere.

    Scum Fuck Flower Boy by Tyler, the Creator: It’s hard to believe this is the same guy who filmed himself pretending to lick shit off of a toilet seat at knifepoint. Engrossing and vulnerable, finally letting himself be sincere and thus bringing forth the masterpiece that is “See You Again.” I can’t believe an average leech fuck like Wyatt Navarro helped inspire this triumph.

    In Return by ODESZA: One of the prettiest electronic albums ever made. Perfectly polished production, elevated by a harem of ethereal female vocals. Pure feel-good arrangements, shooting you into celestial planes. Mesmerizing, dangerously nearing the realm of spiritual, and a reward to all: audiophiles, drunk girls at parties, and stressed college students trying to study.

    THE OOZ by King Krule: Archy’s voice might still be an acquired taste, but there’s nothing subjective about the rich, immersive soundscapes he operates in. There’s so much here that it’s worth multiple listens, each composition as nuanced as the last. Fantano giving this a poor score was an act of war. It’s impossible to believe how young he was when he put out this, and it’s a wonder what he’ll put out next. Pure heroin.

    I agree! I Remember is also really great. It’s unfortunate how much it was overlooked since its filled to the brim with potential hits.
