2010 has come, and so we are blasted with tons of best of year / best of decade lists… albums, songs (paste actually has created enough lists to make you want to vomit a little), etc.  Frankly, I haven’t seen one list I can wholly identify with yet, so here’s the official Snowdenology best albums of the decade list for you. This is the result of almost two months of intermittent work, and most recently – hours upon hours of banging head into desk, blurry vision, laughing, crying, and listening to albums over and over going a bit mad to be quite honest. Hope you enjoy!

Notes:

I set forth a few rules for doing this you might want to know. If not, feel free to skip this boring stuff and get to the goodness below. Otherwise, please read rules below.

  • No compilations.
  • No covers records.
  • No EPs.
  • Instrumental and electronic (primarily) records will have their own list (coming soon).
  • Order will never be perfect, just try to get it as close as possible.
