Your 10 Favorite Albums from the last 7 years...

Recommended Posts

Oh boy! Another list!

I know i know, lists get tedious, but since 7 years is about to pass why the fuck not.

My only requirement, lets keep an honest to god top to bottom list?

1. Silver Jews - Tanglewood Numbers

2. Yo La Tengo - I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One

3. Pernice Brothers - World Wont End

4. Neko Case - Furnace Room Lulaby

5. The Constantines - Shine A Light

6. Stars - Set Yourself On Fire

7. New Pornographers - Mass Romantic

8. Stephen Malkmus - Stephen Malkmus

9. Modest Mouse - Moon & Antarctica

10. Smog - Supper

Ugh, that might have been too easy. I can imagine my top 10 list of the 90s through '97 would be far more dificult.

i wouldn't necessarily say these are the best albums from the last 7 years, but definitely a nice list. someone's got some taste that goes beyond the strokes. ;)

btw...if i think i'd pick "lesser matters" over pet grief (though pet grief is fantastic).
