First off – yes the current decade ends on December 31, 2009 at 11:59 PM. No the decade does not end on that same date in 2010. It’s funny how much confusion there is about this. I believe people are remembering that the last millennium ended January 1, 2001, but millenniums and decades are two different things – hence the two different names. Plus…
I don’t care. I will be posting a list of the top 100 albums (my favorites) of the past 10 years (2000-2009) – if you count, you’ll see there’s 10 years there.
It’s been difficult to make sure I don’t miss anything. Also difficult is ranking albums that are very recent or that I haven’t heard in awhile. Getting to 100 was a chore, but they’re all good quality albums and a good snapshot of the decade.
Tune in Monday for albums 100-91.
