tk’s top 40 albums of the decade

03Jan10

I pity the poor suckers who unleashed their “Albums of the Decade” lists before midnight on January 1st, 2010, because they ALL MISSED THIS ONE! This album (the one that I linked with pink ink before the exclamation point and after the word “they”) did MORE than just convert me to Epistemological Luddism–it also reminded me of WHY I LISTEN TO MUSIC IN THE FIRST PLACE… I can’t remember why off the top of my head, though.

Now that we’ve all settled on naming the prior decade THE NOUGHTIES, I’m going to use that word as many times as possible so that when people Google search THE NOUGHTIES in hopes of finding timely information about settling on naming the prior decade THE NOUGHTIES, they will run into this post, which features 40 albums that I find to be brilliant from THE NOUGHTIES.

NOUGHTIES R US

If you happen to desire some armchair insight from TK on his thoughts and feelings about the musical trends from this decade, then please check out previous postings. However, if you’re looking for the streamlined, no-BS, hands-free, organic, low APR financing, straight-up, old-school list THEN YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE! Also, if you’re into capital letters, then you’ve come to the right place. Also, if you’re looking for someone to ridicule for placing a corporate handjob of an album near the top of his or her (in this case, his) list, then you’ve come to the right place. Also, if you love the word ALSO, then you’ve come the right place. Also, if you’ve come to the right place, then you’ve come to the right place.

Thanks for reading!
