Top 25 Albums of the D'Cade: 25-11

Alright, here's the first part of my list. Generally, my feeling is that music is good when it just is, and that to provide a set of conditions that account for its goodness is to invalidate the brute fact of its beauty. As a result, I hate writing descriptions for these lists. That said, I recognize that without the descriptions they are kind of boring. My compromise is that I'll just hit you with 25-11, and I'll try to provide some descriptions for 10-1.

Also, it should be clear that I do not claim that these are the best albums, just my favorite.

  1. man, decade! a bold move, you zanny bar! I'm having a hard time just doing 09 let alone all these yars. I'll maybe do decade next year when it really counts or if i get enough peer pressure i could try and do it maybe next month or something.

    Anyway, I await the second half of your list and its interestingizing comments. Also I can't really comment much now without knowing the top ten. But I probably would not have put rogue wave on my top 25 of the decade. Good choice on master and everyone though.
