    Nice list, I don't recognize all of them but nice to see Futures and Hot Fuss up there! As for your #1 album of the decade, it seems to have been released very recently, are you sure it's not #1 because it was released so recently, or is it really that amazing? If it is the second option I might have to check it out. ;)

    Well, to be honest, there's a little bit of bias in that, but it is pretty amazing. It's been getting all positive reviews, it's just not as mainstream as any of the stuff that gets voted best album of the year. It's definitely the best album that Thrice have done, who just so happen to be my favourite band, but i genuinely do think that it's better than any other album released this decade.

    Haha, Lily Allen's voice can get annoying; BUT it is a very good pop album, and i kinda found it hard not to include it. Although, the majority of the list was quite bias. :D
