Can't say I'm overly disappointed so far, except for maybe the low placing of Graduation.

I guess I should be happy it made it this far, but I'm still shocked by the hate for Sam's Town (besides BangJan and sonofsamiam... I'm coming to expect that). BleuPanda, 150/150 :(

I ranked it 33/119 and I just re-listened to it. I don't hear an embarrassing "Are we human or are we dancer" moment. When You Were Young is a classic, and Read Your Mind has one of their best climactic moments (really one of my favorites in any song). This River Is Wild has a phenomenal chorus. I think Sam's Town is far more consistent than Hot Fuss, which is only close overall because of the 1-2 punch of All These Things That I've Done and Mr. Brightside. Oh well.

Well...I don't really like Hot Fuss either, so... (though I do generally like their big singles)

I wouldn't say I hated Sam's Town as much as nothing on it really hit me besides When You Were Young. It just kind of played.

As far as other albums I'm considered 'haters' of, my breakdown is:
Rank 1-3: 10/10, with 10 meaning 'all-time masterpiece'
Rank 4-64: 9-9.9/10, with the 9 range meaning 'phenomenal'
Rank 65-131: 8.0-8.9, meaning 'great'
Rank 132-147: 7.0-7.75, meaning 'good'
Rank 148-149: 6.0-6.75, meaning 'above average'
Rank 150: 5.5/10, meaning 'average'

So it's not that I hate those lower albums as much as being 'best of the decade' requires being more than just good.

I would agree that it is a nice improvement over Hot Fuss, way more consistent indeed (though that's not enough to avoid ending in my bottom third).

Surprised and glad a certain black and yellow album hasn't appeared yet (not talking about the black, yellow and orange one, though I'm surprised that one hasn't showed up either), it was my bet for #150 as I expect it to rank very low on several lists (unless it's just unranked, which might help).
A bit surprised too that Toxicity took the last spot, it might not be the most subtle album ever (but then again, still way more than some than ranked above it) and it shows, if anything else, creativity and a huge personality. Plus #8 of its year wasn't too bad !

Just noticed that we also have dueling opinions of Room on Fire, but I understand that much more after Rob's "which Strokes song is this" argument... Some of these do blend together, although I like them and I think it works for listening to the album as a whole.

It's really impressive how you can connect at least to some extent with practically everything that's acclaimed. I'm able to find something appealing in the vast majority of the songs and albums that were finalists, but the bottom handful I really don't get, and I would rank them way lower than a 5.5.

I think I'm just an optimist. It's hard for me to listen to music purely for enjoyment - perhaps largely because I simply enjoy the experience of listening to music. An album or song has to actively be unpleasant for me to dislike it, so I can listen to most good albums and get a similar amount of sonic pleasure. And I've always approached art with an interest in its place within society, and if I don't 'get' or enjoy a piece of music, I tend to explore why its fans like it and try to revisit it with their comments in mind. I guess, for me, I'm more interested in why these works have social significance than I am in enjoying without context. So, the more people analyze a work, the more I am intrigued by it. I guess I've always approached music as if I were an outsider, perhaps due to me not seriously listening to music until I was 17 (it was all video game soundtracks until then). Now that I'm 25 and have listened to over 2300 albums, maybe I need to get out of that phase...

Of course, it's not a one-to-one ratio (some albums I believe people are overvaluing, while others simply never got their moment in the spotlight - though I like to believe I could argue why Sheena Ringo, Foals, or The Go! Team deserve more attention on my own). Luckily, I'm seeing my song list start to diverge a bit from the acclaimed music list - not because I'm losing interest in the popular musical canon, as much as I'm finally finding the songs I'd like to see added among their ranks.

I deliberately don't use the word 'hater'. Of course that can sometimes be the case, but often not. I placed Sunn O))) and Scott Walker (sorry fans) at the bottom of my list, I don't hate either, they just fall too deep into challenging/inaccessible territory for me to enjoy at the moment. Albums like those have the potential to click at any time as my tastes evolve, so I'm also quite happy to see them get support from others.

Fair. I think I have a pretty similar approach (and timeline of getting serious about music), and most of the time I'm able to build up an appreciation by seeing others' perspectives. Sometimes I then get to a point where it really clicks with me - I would have ranked I Know It's Over a 1/10 five years ago, and now I'd put it in the 9s.

Last thing on The Killers... I can't imagine listening to 2:10-3:35 of Read My Mind (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zc8hbSM1zVo) and saying "nothing on it really hit me." But evidently a few of you thought that.

DepecheMode: More of a regularly listenable album than MPP, great songs all around, touching and immersive in their earnestness. Cuckoo Cuckoo is one of the most underrated songs from any acclaimed album, never failes to captivate fully.

Antony & The Johnsons have really underperformed in these polls. Don't know why.

Listyguy: Now that we've had ten years to look back on it, this might be Kanye's most influential album (lyrically and sonically, this album inspired an entire generation of rappers).

I'm pretty sure with time Graduation will be considered the lesser Kanye album (at least from the College Dropout to Yeezus stretch) and it already shows here, and in the AM ranking (it stills ranks higher than 808s, but is falling steadily while 808s is growing fast.)
808s is, as you mentioned, a hugely influential album, it colors most of the hip-hop from 2010 to 2014. It often falters as an album I think, notably Robocop being one his worst songs ever and the next 6 ones being relatively forgettable. The opening salvo though, you can still feel the impact 10 years later, and that counts in critics lists.
Graduation might be more consistant, but it lacks highlights outside of Flashing Lights, and it showcases neither the reinvention that Yeezus or 808s are nor the peaks of Late Registration or MBDTF, so it gets lost in the shuffle.

Regarding the low performance of both, I would not count Late Registration and College Dropout out too fast. The mechanic of the voting doesn't favor exactly the same albums as in the all time lists (where albums from the 2000s by people who like recent music more are favored, as they are more likely to get high in lists, and where the fact that some people might not enjoy them at all doesn't factor) but that should not be enough to impact them too much.

Wow, three people ranked I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning second-to-last!! DepecheMode, I have the same approach, and there are plenty of works whose rankings I vehemently disagree with for the same reasons, but this is not one of them. Yes, he does not have the best voice, but he comes across as very sincere (I think the simple arrangements help this), and the songs are beautifully written. The lyrics certainly help, but the other aspects of the songwriting are outstanding, and I would have "switched off" before hearing the lyrics if I didn't think that were the case.

But like I said, I know where you're coming from - there are plenty of songs and albums by The Smiths, Tom Waits, Lou Reed, and many others for which I can acknowledge the quality of the lyrics while not enjoying the songs. I'm appreciating more and more of them as time goes on though, so maybe some of you will gain a little appreciation for this album at some point too (probably wishful thinking at those rankings).

Thanks for the input. That was somewhat knee-jerk reaction from me and maybe I should give the album second chance. But these kinds of arrangements are really not my thing recently.

I don't get the (relative) lack of love from the forum for The Moon & Antarctica, but it really doesn't bode well for The Lonesome Crowded West which is way less welcoming and not as consistant (plus with 1997 being that stacked, even being in my top 30 of all time it's just my 5th favorite of the year, so even I won't give it that many points).

Also never really got why Madvillainy is more acclaimed than some MF DOOM solo albums, or than Dangerdoom, though I would agree it's a pretty adventurous album.

There's one album I expected to end up pretty low and that still haven't showed up. As strange as it might seem, I will be both a hater and happy it does quite well : while some albums on the bottom of my list I find pretty bad or just boring/self indulgent, this one I just can't connect with but suspects I will someday do, and is at the very least an oddity that seems miles away from the usual albums acclaimed around here.
Alternatively there is another album from the bottom of my list that hasn't shown up that has always been a huge disappointment as it should be right up my alley but sounds completely underwhelming (except from the one song where the turned the power on).

Ok, I'm done being cryptic !

Yeah one really big surprise for me(top 80 feels like a high placement although if it was with old top 100 format it wouldn't seem). And... it's a good one!

Also Muse being all in it still is pretty shocking to me, when compared to other pop rock albums that got in but struggled to get to top 100.

DepecheMode: This is gonna rank lower than TOTBL, so I’ll explain my love for Interpol here. Antics is also my favorite from the two, and always has been. TOTBL has some great atmosphere but to me it kind of fades away in the second half, we’re left with typical Interpol tracks, which is great, but when it comes to that I always liked songs on Antics more. The biggest draw in Interpol to me is Paul Banks voice – as some review said it – he sounds intense and urgent but not overwrought no matter what he sings – he gives what would be a solid track by other bands an edge to become great and a favorite for many listens. Of course, the rhythm section and guitar are also backbone to Interpol success – look no futher than „A Time to Be So Small” - my favorite Interpol track, a sound of band as a collective at it’s peak.

Given your penchant for hard rocking music (I seem to recall you love QOTSA), I'm guessing one of these albums is the Muse album that just appeared?

Yes Jamie, no Nick!
Actually there was a subtle clue for the one I dislike, but no clue for Donuts so well done ;)

I do love QOTSA (and at the drive in) but I'd say they are the exception more than the rule.
That being said Black Holes and Revelations has been one of the biggest letdown of my life, I was a big Muse fan at the time and God that album sucks (though the Resistance is even worse). That being said the previous 2 albums hinted at what would go wrong. They are a band with a few very strong suits (their rhythmic section, a knack for finding cool arpeggios, great riffs) and some terrible weakness (pomposity, terrible use of strings, lame pseudo intellectual concepts) but somehow they increasingly underused what they are good at and put an emphasis on what sucks. I'd put that mostly on some Bellamy's ego issue.

Well, it wouldn't have happened if I had voted, as Vespertine would have competed with Illinois about my #1 spot.

I’m shocked Dear Catastrophe Waitress landed higher than Life Pursuit. IMO the first two thirds of LP are some of the most hummable songs of the decade and DCW is just stuck between identities.

I agree, and I’m similarly surprised about From a Basement on a Hill landing above Figure 8. Elliott Smith has a lot of great albums, and Figure 8 is still my favorite by a mile. I’m assuming in both cases it again comes down to me valuing melodies more than most people.

DepecheMode: I went like 9 years knowing who Burial was and checking out his tracks but not listening to this album, for reasons known to no one. Finally checked it out and yeah I love it. Especially the second half which goes full eerie dreamy sound is wonderful. „Homeless” is one of the most uplifting tracks I’ve heard, quite ironic.

DepecheMode: Surpringly, I do not mind these grandoise Muse records as much as I thought, or in fact at all. For the longest time I thought why listen to them when I have the real thing – Radiohead. But once I know every missed cut from them there is no reason to not try Muse. Might have liked this even more in my peak Radiohead listening days.

DaveC: Polarising as always. 'Absolution' unexpectedly beaten by 'Origin of Symmetry'.

Haha, 3 second-place votes and 2 last-place votes for American Idiot. Another acclaimed radio-friendly rock album that turns out to be very polarizing here, although I'm pleasantly surprised by this finish.

But I find myself wishing to fast forward on a couple of tracks, a bit too many to really say I like this album as a whole. Losing My Edge is stone-cold classic ofc, rapping about Internet seekers and RYM-core artists in 2002, hats off.

This has been dragging on a bit, so I'll skip having a 'guess the top 20' contest. Especially as the result would probably be about placing one particular album in or near the top 10 - rather than in the next group where you might expect it. Never-the-less the next 5 albums have all improved their performance from the last 2000s poll, some by a considerable margin. Furthermore, each of these albums has performed better in this poll than in it's respective year poll.....

I liked the Queens album actually. You want to talk about an album I’m NOT a fan of go up a notch. Not worthy of even being ranked. When she plays the harp I think of Morticia Adams doing her high pitched “Tokyo” squealing bit in the Addams Family. That and when she “sings” I think of the sound that the bird makes from Alice in Wonderland when the Queen rings their neck when they’re about to play polo with it.
