1. Nas' Stillmatic CD was better than The Blueprint.

2. I didn't cycle through all of the pages, but can someone tell me if MF Doom's Operation Doomsday made the list? It certainly should have.

3. I'm sure this list is also missing Madvillain's album since I didn't see it on the top 10.
2005-09-18 01:08:07 AM  
#02 - The Animal Collective "Sung Tongs" - total mindfark
2005-09-18 01:08:27 AM  
How can they not have Tool's Lateralus (as #1)?

I demand a recount!!!
2005-09-18 01:08:54 AM  
there were 100 albums released in 04/05?
2005-09-18 01:09:15 AM  
I will never understand music/art comptetions or rankings. Just listen to what you like.
2005-09-18 01:09:22 AM  
While the P-fork kids are a bit twee for my taste, I thank them for exposing me to music I would not have thought to consider otherwise. Keep it up, folks.

FARK items of the future - Dateline, 2025:

(Some Pollster) [image from too old to be available] "Who Wants To Be A Multi-Millionaire" loses $100 Million prize when he can't name a single album released between 2000 and 2004.
2005-09-18 01:10:26 AM  
Kanye West is #50! So much for my prediction that the list wouldn't care about black people. (I love that album BTW)

Some stuff on there I like but I can't stand reading album reviews anymore, they're so... damn... SCENE.
2005-09-18 01:10:27 AM  
There is nothing on the list that I like. I haven't even heard of some of these bands.

Sonic Youth? Basement Jaxx? The Books? Ghostface Killah?

Bloody hell, I think I'm lost.
2005-09-18 01:10:29 AM  
Meh.... no TINA BAILEY?
Phoenix roxs!
2005-09-18 01:10:47 AM  
Play some Skynyrd man!
2005-09-18 01:10:56 AM  
I will be the first to say it, once more, because it needs to be heard.


Train of Thought, specifically.

Octavarium, more recently.
2005-09-18 01:11:02 AM  
I do love reading posts from this thread. One of 2 variations:

OMG These people dont know anything abouy good music, not like ME. I debunk the entire list becasue ____randomband____ isn't on the list at all.

OMG I hate (rap/hiphop/alt/techno/rock/indiebands). The only good music in the world is ____genre____ which means this list was made by idiots.
2005-09-18 01:11:57 AM  
No Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks?

2005-09-18 01:12:01 AM  
2005-09-18 01:12:02 AM  
I surrender... I only recognize a couple of the bands from the FIRST PAGE. Apparently I'm not even cool enough to debate the merit of this list.
2005-09-18 01:12:07 AM  
I will never understand music/art comptetions or rankings. Just listen to what you like.

It's a bit like competitive sex.
2005-09-18 01:12:09 AM  
Number 1: RadioHead.

Yep, not biased at all. Nope.

Is this a UK site?
2005-09-18 01:12:11 AM  
I don't own a single CD on that list. In fact, I think I could count the number of bands on that list that Ive heard of on my fingers.
2005-09-18 01:12:42 AM  
Hmm, flip a coin for #1;

What a crap list.
2005-09-18 01:12:50 AM  
Why do these lists exists? To vindicate the music snobs that write them?
2005-09-18 01:12:52 AM  
No Bright Eyes... thank god.
2005-09-18 01:13:25 AM  
meh, at least Fugazi is #29...

any 'punk' on this list? continuing to look at it is angering me greatly.
2005-09-18 01:13:34 AM
2005-09-18 01:13:47 AM  
Hahaha, "Give Up" (by the Postal Service) was one of the worst albums I've ever heard in my entire life.
2005-09-18 01:13:53 AM  
Just a point of fact if the words impossibly millennial are ever used to describe an album I will not only refuse to buy it but will also murder the reviewer
2005-09-18 01:14:35 AM  

That's a cool name on so many levels, I'm jealous. Kudos.
2005-09-18 01:15:09 AM  

This list could also be named, "Top 100 albums least likely to be downloaded for any reason on any p2p network"

Except for Eminem. But then, who said you had to have taste to dowlload music ?

2005-09-18 01:15:34 AM  

please tell me you're not serious about evanescence.
2005-09-18 01:15:49 AM  
Did they forget Faith and the Muse's album - The Burning Season? I think that was the best album of 2003.

/didn't read all of the farking article

#15 - Dizee Rascal "Boy in Da Corner" - fab-farking-tastic! Raucous atari-programed beats and rapidfire rhymes served up from england - nice for a change of pace.

#13 - Madvillain "Madvillain" - Best Hip Hop album of the Decade (so far)
2005-09-18 01:17:26 AM  
I feel like I've been evangelized.

Maybe if I accept these bands into my heart then I will be saved and can go to Music Heaven and live with Thom Yorke forever.
2005-09-18 01:17:31 AM  
Can't tell which is worse: the thought that this collection is someone's idea of "best of the decade," the thought that it might actually be the best of the decade, or the pretentious-shiate writing about this musical yuckness that seems little more that critic self-fellation.

/dancing about architecture, etc.
2005-09-18 01:17:58 AM  

Doomsday isn't on there, and I don't know what their excuse is. Vaudeville is, as is Madvillain, but Doomsday is nowhere to be seen. No matter... Pitchfork's all hype and no music, anyway :)

I was happy to see: The Books, Fugazi, Devendra Banhart, and Godspeed on there (as well as a few other bands)... Interpol, though... ugh...
2005-09-18 01:19:08 AM  
As soon as I saw The Flaming Lips in there, I stopped.

"Ooh, if we throw a bunch of wacky sound effects in and give our songs crazy titles, maybe no one will notice that our songs all have four chords and our singer can't sing..."
2005-09-18 01:19:20 AM  
only Franz Ferdinand is on that list that I actually own. They didn't include Interpol's followup album, Antics, Modest Mouse's "Good News For People Who Love Bad News", anything from Death From Above 1979, Ween- Quebec, or Tenacious D!

/yes, it IS a critic's list
//rock on
2005-09-18 01:20:44 AM  
#24: Boards of Canada "Geogaddi" - very beautiful music. ambient organic electronic music. Imagine if smoke could be restructured into musical form, there, you have this album.
2005-09-18 01:21:19 AM  
The Drive By Truckers should be on that list, The Postal Service...not so much.
2005-09-18 01:21:20 AM  
I generally only use pitchfork for music news. I don't value their reviews very much.

However, I was pleased with Interpol's placement. I think The Unicorns should have placed higher.
2005-09-18 01:21:38 AM  
Thanks pawn!
2005-09-18 01:21:57 AM  
The Killers and Keane have put out the best albums I've heard in the past few years. Also "The Rising" by Bruce Springsteen.
2005-09-18 01:22:47 AM  
why does FARK even green light these things?

they are CLEARLY overly opinionated bullshot that serve only 2 points, 1. to add to the internet penis of the creator, and 2. to toss gasoline on some internet flame war, I.E. Fark.

Come on people, you're top 100, let alone 10 is OBVIOUSLY going to be different than the creators, so why not just accept this, consider the other guy a moron and move along with your life?

why get worked up? Sure, I think "the postal service" and TooL are musical geniouses, you probably don't. Fine. why can't we all get along??

/ME ftw.
//end of thread.
2005-09-18 01:22:49 AM  
Didn't read the whole list, just some points about the top ten:

--The White Stripes are the worst band in the history of music, and the crap that they produce should forever be erased from the musical history of the world.

--The Blueprint might be Jay-Z's best album ever, no question, but it's not better than either of the Outkast albums or Kanye's first album (haven't heard the whole of his second yet). Hell, DJ Dangermouse took his work and did a better album (the real #1) in The Grey Album. I never thought anyone would make The Beatles relevant to black people, but there you go.

--Hail to the Thief is better than Kid A...but everything Radiohead does is great, so I'm just glad to see them get their just due.
2005-09-18 01:23:12 AM  
No "Empire Strikes First" (Bad Religion) or "Thirteenth Step" (A Perfect Circle)?
fark that!
2005-09-18 01:23:17 AM  
Pretentious? Moi?

Hate to put Doom in a thread with so many shiatty artists bein' mentioned... but... DOOOOMM
2005-09-18 01:24:14 AM  
If the definition of 'good music' is subjective, at least consider the words, "now entering its second half.." Screw the bands you've never heard of, has it really gone by that fast?
