26 mai 2011, 3h40m par evilsoybeanI'm taking on the monumental task of ranking 100 of my favorite albums from the decade. We're a year and a half removed from the decade so I think it's a bit easier now to take a look back without getting caught up in the hype of 2009. I've got my entire list in order, but I'm still working on writeups. For now, here's 100-91.
Yes, I know there are huge gaps. I'll fix them later.
100) Of Montreal - The Sunlandic Twins (2005)
This is the album when the darkness seep through the cracks in Of Montreal's sunny indie pop, and it makes for some enjoyable listening. The first half of this album is catchy and danceable, while the second half is dark and brooding, and while the album doesn't cover the full range of human emotion quite like later albums Hissing Fauna and Skeletal Lamping, it is clearly a step in that direction. It will make you want to move, and maybe later it will make you want to sit and reflect.
