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.
25. Damien Jurado - Ghost of David
24. Rogue Wave - Out of the Shadow
23. Modest Mouse - The Moon and Antarctica
22. Magnetic Fields - 69 Love Songs
21. Destroyer - Rubies
20. Of Montreal - Satanic Panic in the Attic
19. Bonnie "Prince" Billy - Master and Everyone
18. Solvent - Apples and Synthesizers
17. Sigur Ros - ()
16. Sun Kil Moon - Ghosts of the Great Highway
15. Arcade Fire - Funeral
14. Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion

12. Sufjan Stevens - Seven Swans
11. Gui Boratto - Chromophobia

10-1 will follow shortly.

  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.
