My 100 favorite albums from the past decade

It has been a few years since I last posted a list. At the time I ran out of ideas, that and it took a lot of work. Last weekend I was inspired to create another list. For this new list, it consists of 100 of my favorite albums from the past decade. I almost forgot how much fun there was when putting together these lists. Sure it was a lot of work but the time and energy invested in it was immensely satisfying to this blogger.

I should note with this list, I specifically made sure I would not have more than one album by an artist. Choosing which albums from certain artists like Delta Rae or VNV Nation was challenging for me but I eventually made the right decision.
