do you have the balls to make a list, keeping it edited as you realize every few hours how foolish you were to forget something?

i don't yet... give me a bit.

    The five that I feel sure of at the moment from my current top 10 are:

    Hammers of Misfortune - The August Engine
    Electric Wizard - Dopethrone
    The Mountain Goats - Tallahassee
    Lightning Bolt - Wonderful Rainbow
    Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven

    Still deciding on whether or not Dopesmoker is valid.

    Neko Case- Middle Cyclone

    Gosh darnit, wrong thread. Well, I still haven't done much better :p

    For the first half of the decade I mainly stuck to a few niches... nu-metal was the only genre I could be bothered to stick to albums.

    And why the hell did I post Tallahassee as a 2009 release? No way that was 09.

    shit, you didn't have to get all serious about it now!
    And if that wasn't enough, I plan on expanding that list with a brief review of each album when I have the time (probably in the next few days). At which point I may post it in the Indie/Alt thread as well, since it reads like an "Indie and Alternative Rock of the 2000s" list. It may be altered slightly by then though.
