These are some of my favourite records from the decade. I don’t want to say that they are “My Top Ten Records Of The Decade” because I’m not sure what that list would look like. They are in some kind of loose order. I had a top 20 but it just seemed like a bit of a cop-out. If anyone wants to see the other 10 records I can post them on here.

Saetia – A Retrospective – 2001
Hot Snakes – Suicide Invoice – 2002
My Latest Novel – Wolves – 2006
Jimmy Eat World – Bleed American – 2001
No Age – Nouns – 2008
Arcade Fire – Funeral – 2004
Grandaddy – The Sophtware Slump – 2000
Blink 182- The Tom, Mark and Travis Show  (The Enema Strikes Back) – 2000
Meneguar – I Was Born At Night – 2005
Wilco – Yankee Hotel Foxtrot – 2002

You have just convinced me to play my copies of A Retrospective and The Mark, Tom, and Travis Show in succession. This is going to be awesome.
