It's DIS Poll time! ... Your Albums of the Decade please

Excellent call, but for me the debut is even greater. Can’t believe I didn’t think of it. Brilliant albums by female singer songwriters have been a feature of this decade but that record is arguably the best.

How likely is a top 3 of MBDTF, TPAB and Blonde?

I don’t think it’ll do as well as the other two. I personally prefer channel orange

@mods perhaps lock this thread? Wouldn’t like people to be putting their lists in here thinking they are part of a wider poll (which is now going to be delayed until the new year). There’s the other thread that does the job until then:

Sneaking this in here for posterity in that case before the thread gets locked down :+1:

  2. Trans Love Energies - Death In Vegas
  3. Garden Of Delete - Oneohtrix Point Never

I like your list!

Wow, i didn’t expect to see ‘Trans Love Energies’ in anyone’s list.

Not too big a fan of the album but ‘Your Loft My Acid’ is defo one of my tracks of the decade.

:+1:

Maybe a time and place album a bit - it came out just before I moved to Berlin and when I had finally got a phone that could store music so I absolutely rinsed it while watching summer turn into autumn. That said, I still think it’s a great rangey album - not a bad track across both discs of the special edition :+1:

I’ve no problem with taking this on now if there is a demand. But there was an albums of the century poll done via the social board recently (perhaps someone could provide a link) which probably makes this exercise superfluous given the decade list would simply be a subset of that. Not that people shouldn’t post lists and discuss here - just on the understanding that the results won’t be collated.
