You've made a bizarre mathematical error and added 50 to Lateralus ;-)
Some awesome stuff on there dude. A trip to the record shop is in order methinks.

Some extremely interesting choices, Mr Jago.

I'm enjoying The Decemberists and The Low Anthem enormously on your recommendation, but my favourite choice was Tom McRae. I didn't think anyone else in the world had heard of him.

Can I suggest you try the following (if you haven't already):

The Spaces In Between by Ben Christophers
Cassadaga by Bright Eyes
Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon by Devandra Banhart
Illinois by Surfjan Stevens

I look forward to next decade's poll.

I thought I was one of very few that actually liked that Tom McRae album, great to see it make your top 10! Although Radiohead only scrape in there with Kid A?

Chris Bardell said...

Suggestion: Badly Drawn Boy's 'The Hour of Bewilderbeast'.

Listened daily for 2 years, and still sounds stunning now.
