    Haha no, deliberate post. It was what inspired me to make the other thread.

    Either A Black Mile To The Surface by Manchester Orchestra.This is a super emotional indie rock record.

    Or Time Will Die and Love Will Bury It by Rolo Tomassi which is an intense post-metal/mathcore record that works like a seamless song for the whole album.

    I can't split these two albums, they're absolutely amazing and are spun regularly even more than a year on from their releases.

    Think we've seen a real renaissance in Australian music this decade, Courtney Barnett, Tame Impala, Pond, Bored Nothing and the Goon Sax have all made impressive bows since 2010, but my vote goes to the lush Hope Downs by Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever.

    It's as close an answer as we're going to get to the question "What would The Go-Betweens sound like if they were starting over in 2018?"

    An honourable mention to I Forget Where We Were by Ben Howard too. He gets (unfairly, IMHO) lumped in with the plethora of singer/songwriters we've been infested with like woodlice of late, but he's streets ahead of that.

    That Rolo Tomassi album is incredible. One of the best of last year, for sure, not sure where I'd rank it for the whole decade though.

    Definitely agree on Ben Howard.

    I don't listen to enough albums to have a particularly good opinion, but xx was only ten years ago and I haven't heard an album I liked better since.

    The best NZ album I've heard in years is The Beths' Future Me Hates Me.

    Another favourite from the past decade is Benji by Sun Kil Moon (Mark Kozelek). No doubt it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I love it.

    Initially I thought it might be their best yet, but it comes in behind In Rainbows for mine after a few years to digest it

    It's strength lies largely in Jonny Greenwood's string/choral arrangements, and there is some excellent use of piano and keyboards throughout some of the tracks, the balance between pure songwriting skill and texture/production was very impressive

    Kid A still number one IMO. The transition from OKC with the suicidal depression of No surprises/Climbing up the walls to the desperate optimism of Lucky/Tourist, the murmur of rebellion at the end of Everything in it’s Right Place to full scale revolution in Idioteque/Kid A is such a great example of music (not predominantly the lyrics) as a storytelling medium.

    So many little wonderdul things in Kid A, like there being two narrators inside the protagonist’s head who both have their own songs, with some overlap. At the beginning of the album, ‘Kid A’ is doing the profane, unclear robotic murmurs while the other character has a clear melodic voice, by the end of the album, with Kid A having taken over, it’s the opposite. I’ve listened to the album hundreds of times and notice something cool each time.
