Best-2000-71-80comments: The first two of any 2009 albums appear here. It’s hard to judge whether or not Fantasies or The Estatic have staying power, but I can’t stop playing either and both will be at the top of my year end list. Accelerate was a return to form for R.E.M. And 19 was worthy of Adele’s Grammy

    I am offended at how low Vampire Weekend is on your favorite list. Our blogship ends here!

    Other than that, yeah, that Travis album is quite good.

      If it helps – I listened to a lot of albums in the past 10 years. The list of artists that didn't make the list is pretty good.

    Well if that offends you than you'll be shocked and outraged at my list cause Vampire Weekend didn't even make my first cut…which ended up around the 200 mark. Now trying to whittle it down to an even 100.

    If they weren't from New York and didn't have the word "Vampire" in their name nobody would have even heard of them. Rest assured, they'll be forgotten soon…if they haven't been already.

      Lol. I can't go that far, but I definitely think there are bands of that style that I like better (Ra Ra Riot for instance).

      Can't wait to see your list.
