when trying to rank 60 albums over the past decade, you are obviously going to get a lot of different opinions. that's what makes it fun though. here are a couple of my thoughts.

- i personally would have put both bon iver and the decemberists a bit higher and lowered the felice bothers and deer tick. that's just me though.

- it was good to see richard buckner make the list...always one of my favorites.

- i am pretty surprised that okkervil river didn't make the cut. black sheep boy would have been somewhere around the middle of the pack for me, if not higher.

- did i overlook it or was there no radiohead listed? surely that was an accident, no?

- i think you nailed #1.

I agree with pretty much everything John said. Was surprised to see no Radiohead or Okkervil River.

I would have to put Yankee Hotel in top 3. CYHSY is a great album, but far too high for my tastes. Also, Moon and Antarctica would be in top ten.

No error on radiohead, I like them but they don't wet my whistle. I enjoy their albums but they don't stay in my ipod long.

Blind Pilot kills at least one of those Kings of Leon Albums. They should be on the LIST!!!!!
