I have nothing on that list. I'm guessing that says something about me. Possibly.

I was going to say I had none of them as it appears to be a hateful list, and gloat. Then I realised I actually do have the Johnny Cash one. Shit! It's all crap really and depends entirely on your taste surely.
Best album of the decade (for me) is The Cult - Beyond Good and Evil folllowed by Quireboys - This is Rock and Roll. Can't see NME printing that tho :D

Uh fun lists about music!

4. Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
6. PJ Harvey - Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea
9. The Streets - Original Pirate Material
16. The Streets - A Grand Don't Come for Free
18. The White Stripes - Elephant
25. Rapture - Echoes
30. Elbow - Asleep In the Back
34. Grandaddy - The Sophtware Slump

There's a couple of others I probably should own notably the Spiritualized album and ANOTHER Johnny Cash record (actually if this is one of the American recording I do own it I just remember these by number not title) and I've always meant to check out Wilco as all the stuff I've heard by them I've enjoyed.

It's the fourth of the American Recordings.  The one with covers of Depeche Mode's Personal Jesus and Nine Inch Nails' Hurt.  Classic.  The rest?  Yawn.

I've just found out that in the same four week period that the housing association is fitting an entire new bathroom and kitchen in our flat, our wonderful subsidised restaurant at work is being refurbished too, so no hot lunches OR dinners.

The flat improvements were the bribe offered if we all voted to be transferred from council-run housing to HA. I voted no, but the refurbs and the avalanche of biased publicity meant the yes camp won. I expect rapid rent increases after 2012.

The food at work by the way is lovely - today I had poached smoked haddock with wilted spinach on a toasted muffin, with sautéed potatoes & onions and cauliflower cheese, all for £2.90. Tomorrow is 'roast day' - beef this week with Yorkshire pud and all the trimmings. yum! Six years of working there has made me fat, but I don't care!

December 09 is going to be the Month of the Sandwich. *sigh*

??Regarding the above list the majority of those albums i havent even heard and even the artists that were massively hyped like Arctic Monkeys,White Stripes,and The Libertines i have only ever heard one track from each of them.I have never heard anything by any of the other artists listed and without being dismissive i couldnt care less if i never hear anything by them because i am just not interested.It just goes over my head.I only heard a White Stripes track because it was played a couple of times in a club.

As far as i am concerned the last decade that the list covers is the worst decade for music i have lived through and i consider myself to be a music lover.I was blown away by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs because they seem genuine and look like they mean it and its just dirty sounding Rock N Roll music.

I only really listen to back catalogue and i am constantly buying secondhand vinyl.For example yesterday i bought a Bad Company album [self titled album  contains Cant Get Enough] and Gary Moore - Back On The Streets.

I live in a bubble and i create my own reality.By that i mean being out of touch with popular culture.

Peter man, you're in your thirties.  Your 'popular culture' happened 20 years ago.  There's no shame in it.

I scroll through my MP3 player.  With the exception of movie soundtracks, a bit of wigger stuff I quite enjoy for its self-important silliness (Eminem, Streets etc.), some world music, and a lot of Rubin-era Johnny Cash, there's basically nothing on there from after 1991 - the year I turned 20.

I hope thats an exaggeration and you haven't missed the work of Tom Waits over the last 18 years - he's produced some of his best work!

Ah, point.  I did skip over the Waits section (10 albums on the MP3), probably because I always think of my introduction to him ca. 1990 as coming to an artist already fully formed, even though my favourite album (Bone Machine) didn't come out 'til 1992.  Ditto some of Leonard Cohen's later stuff - The Future, for example, also 1992.  So basically I'm talking shite when it comes to artists who had already won my heart by the time I was 20.
