Favorite Albums of the 2010s

Post by Edre Peraza » Sun Jul 28, 2019 10:26 pm

With the decade coming to a close with only a few months left to go, I figured I should start a mega-thread where we can all share our lists of 50+ albums from the past decade and discuss our picks as I am sure there will be some controversial picks. This is my first real thread so please forgive me if it isn't well organized.

I want to do something similar to the recent "All Time Artists" poll that was recently conducted where a massive list is created at the end. The issue is, I don't know how to do that! So PLEASE, if any of you do, please message me.

I will keep this post updated if there are any changes.

I’d like to share a list of my favorites so far but I guess I wouldn’t consider it my “official” list until 2019 is over since I only have albums through 2018, how long will you have the poll open for?

Here's the top 7 from the list I made a year ago (the full list will certainly change whenever I finally get around to redoing it). The 2010s is the decade with which I have the deepest musical familiarity, and is also my favorite decade in music. I think this list shows my musical personality.

1. Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues (2011)
2. Linkin Park - A Thousand Suns (2010)
3. Kero Kero Bonito - Bonito Generation (2016)
4. Janelle Monae - The ArchAndroid (2010)
5. Kendrick Lamar - Section.80 (2011)
6. Swans - To Be Kind (2014)
7. Kacey Musgraves - Same Trailer Different Park (2013)

The notion of compiling an EoD list while keeping up with all the potential 2019 EoY releases feels like a logistical nightmare. There are so many records from the past decade that I still want to check out (at least 250 by my count) and about as many albums that I loved but lack the time to revisit. Really hoping the next few months slow down to a crawl but I get the feeling that it will all fly by.

Just saying, the decade in music isn’t over yet. This is a wonderful idea for a poll, it’s just that there’s four months left of music to still hear. Remember, the highest ranking album of the 1970s came out in the decade’s last month :mrgreen:

I’d suggest to you that you keep this poll open into next year, and that maybe by March or April 2020 you close it and start tabulating the results, based on the lists that were submitted. And use a reasonable point spread to count the results! It’d also be pretty cool if you did a presentation similar to the all time lists as well, where you’d find out the results too.

I’m not gonna submit a list until the year is over, so I can have time to digest the rest of this year’s releases, and how they rank in my end of decade list. Like i said, it’s a wonderful idea for a poll, just a little premature.

I do feel confident enough to submit by AOTY’s and SOTY’s for this decade, so far. The only year I can see being changed is 2019, because it all depends on how the entire year matches up for me. For 2015 and 2017, i’ve included two songs, because of my undecidedness in those years for what my SOTY is, as of now.

Albums:

2010: Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
2011: Drake - Take Care
2012: Kendrick Lamar - good kid, m.A.A.d city
2013: Disclosure - Settle
2014: St. Vincent - St. Vincent
2015: Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp A Butterfly
2016: Beyonce - Lemonade
2017: Kendrick Lamar - DAMN.
2018: Janelle Monae - Dirty Computer
2019: Ariana Grande - thank u, next

Songs:

2010: Kanye West ft. Pusha T - Runaway
2011: Kendrick Lamar - A.D.H.D.
2012: Frank Ocean - Pyramids
2013: Daft Punk ft. Pharrell Williams - Get Lucky
2014: Sia - Chandelier
2015: Tame Impala - Let It Happen / Drake - Hotline Bling
2016: Beyonce - Formation
2017: Lorde - Green Light / KALLITECHNIS - Come Up
2018: Childish Gambino - This Is America

Obviously this is VERY preliminary, looking forward to the rest of 2019 (Anna Meredith, Matana Roberts, Sky Ferreira, etc.)

Here's 200 ranked albums, and a boatload of honorable mentions...

1 | Kendrick Lamar | To Pimp a Butterfly | 2015
2 | Julia Holter | Loud City Song | 2013
3 | Janelle Monae | The ArchAndroid | 2010
4 | Matana Roberts | Coin Coin Chapter One: Gens de couleur libres | 2011
5 | Wadada Leo Smith | Ten Freedom Summers | 2012
6 | Swans | The Seer | 2012
7 | Burial | Kindred EP | 2012
8 | John Luther Adams | Become Ocean [Seattle Symphony / Ludovic Morlot] | 2014
9 | David Bowie | Blackstar | 2016
10 | Flying Lotus | Cosmogramma | 2010
I was happy to see this as a reference for my listening over the next few months heading into EOD poll season. Surprised that Loud City Song got beaten out for the top spot! I have your 2, 6, 7, 9, and 10 in my T10. I've still never heard Ten Freedom Summers - wish that one was available on Spotify.

My roommate just made a top 50 list and, even though I've been trying to hold out and wait for the proper end of the decade, I decided to make a provisional list. This one is definitely inaccurate, something I kind of like about it, but it's a fine list nonetheless. I took my top 8 albums from each year and then sorted them, although I can tell some years will definitely get more than eight in the actual top 80 when I compile my final list of 200 in January 2020.

I was happy to see this as a reference for my listening over the next few months heading into EOD poll season. Surprised that Loud City Song got beaten out for the top spot! I have your 2, 6, 7, 9, and 10 in my T10. I've still never heard Ten Freedom Summers - wish that one was available on Spotify.
I've begun my listening to catch-up with the 2010s in order to prepare for the next year poll. And, copying Jackson, I've begun on the best possible departure point, sonofsamiam's list. I've listened so far to the Top 15 and it has been a rewarding music experience. Lots of black artists, lots of female artists, lots of styles usually set aside on end-of-year lists (especially jazz and modern classical), lots of adventurous and ambitious albums and, the fact I liked the most, lots of artists pushing the boundaries between styles and creating fascinating hybrid genres. Among the albums I listened these weeks for the first time I would like to point at are:
- "Djarimirri," a tight and brilliant integration of folk (Australian Aboriginal traditional chants) and classical (with minimalistic arrangements Glass or Reich-style). A truly excellent album that was a big success in his native Australia (it went to number one, only the second Aboriginal album to do so) but it went unnoticed in the rest of the world, being only #482 on the AM critics list and only appearing on one list (Australian of course). Oh well…
- "Become Ocean," an impressive listening experience (I should say that I've listened to these albums while driving on my way to work and listening to this sometimes I got the feeling of ingravity), moreover when I learned later that the work is a palindrome, the piece reaches a climax at the midpoint and from then it’s played in reverse. The review by Alex Ross is enlightening.
- But the album I enjoyed the most was "Ten Freedom Summers," the only one I haven't listened while driving (it's not on Spotify). This time for the better since I read the Wikipedia entries for the names and historical facts mentioned in the song titles (Medgar Evers, Rosa Parks, Fannie Lou Hamer, Emmett Till, Freedom Summer, Little Rock Nine) while listening to the pieces and: a) I learned a lot about history of the struggle of African Americans and b) even if the music is not exactly programmatic the feeling the music tracks transmitted matched the reading. I particularly got shivers reading the story of Emmett Till while listening to the chilling track "Emmett Till: Defiant, Fearless."

Thank you very much, sonofsamiam!
Sorry this is a bit belated, but I appreciate the call-out, and am especially happy that people are discovering music here from my lists. I feel the 3 you mentioned especially, Honorio, are overlooked masterpieces that may be underappreciated now, but will hopefully stand the test of time.

Jackson, as always, thanks for your nice comments as well. :greetings-waveyellow:
