oh, whoops! some dude is not a major web site or print publication
Considering the fact he wrote about every single album in the list, that's pretty major. I've never had the time to do something like that. If it's an ILX regular, it would be worth checking out. It's just that there's so much worthless dreck to wade through on LargeheartedBoy's lists.

The FACT list is down to #21. Pretty interesting, like an alternate universe where rock doesn't exist except for a few odd token entries of Arctic Monkeys, White Stripes, Wilco and Arcade Fire. It reminded me to re-listen to some albums I'd forgotten about, like the Sunn 0)))/Boris collab, The Soft Pink Truth. It also has the most albums in a decade list I've never even heard of:
100: PARALLAX CORPORATION - COCADISCO (VIEWLEXX, 2001) 98: SHED - SHEDDING THE PAST (OSTGUT-TON, 2008) 96: KARL LINDH - BORTOM E4'S HORRISONT (STRANGE LIFE, 2005) 94: SENKING - LIST (RASTER-NOTON, 2007) 90: BJØRN TORSKE - FEIL KNAPP (SMALLTOWN SUPERSOUND, 2007) 85: REKID - MADE IN MENORCA (SOUL JAZZ, 2006) 79: DJ HARVEY - SARCASTIC DISCO VOL. 2 (SARCASTIC CLOTHING, 2001) 73: TRUS’ME - WORKING NIGHT$ (FAT CITY, 2007) 72: MONOLAKE - POLYGON CITIES (MONOLAKE / IMBALANCE COMPUTER MUSIC, 2005) 69: VARIOUS ARTISTS - RUN THE ROAD (679, 2005) 64: THEO PARRISH - SOUND SCULPTURES (SOUND SIGNATURE, 2008) 62: LAWRENCE - THE ABSENCE OF BLIGHT (DIAL, 2003)52: JAN JELINEK - LOOP-FINDING-JAZZ-RECORDS (~SCAPE, 2001) 50: DJ SLIMZEE - SIDEWINDER TAPE (SIDEWINDER, 2002) 44: NEWWORLDAQUARIUM - THE DEAD BEARS (DELSIN, 2007) 30: WILLIAM BASINSKI - THE DISINTEGRATION LOOPS (2062, 2002-2003) 29: ACTRESS - HAZYVILLE (WERK DISCS, 2008) 21: CONVEXTION (DOWN LOW MUSIC, 2006)
I wonder if recently released favorites King Midas Sound and Oneohtrix Point Never will make the top 20.

"It's just that there's so much worthless dreck to wade through on LargeheartedBoy's lists."
so true ! LB goes for quantity over quality, so many of the lists are shockingly blatant pitchfork pastiches
― djmartian, Thursday, 3 December 2009 20:34 (3 years ago) Permalink
The FACT list is complete. Not totally surprising, but also not nearly as predictable as other lists. Pretty cool. One more I hadn't heard of:
11: THE OTHER PEOPLE PLACE - LIFESTYLES OF THE LAPTOP CAFÉ (WARP, 2001)

But he isn't even going for quality-control, is he? It's presented as the most comprehensive survey of year-end (or decade-end) lists available in one place.

Fact Magazine lists are always great. Really hoping they make a best songs of the decade as well.

I didn't intend to criticize LargeheartedBoy. I just meant that it's difficult to weed out the good lists that reflect the collaborative efforts of several people with better writing skills than your average blogger.

Didn't like some of the choices between Nos. 20 -- 2, but still a lot of good albums on that list.
― Daniel, Esq., Friday, 4 December 2009 20:50 (3 years ago) Permalink
Have to agree...the FACT Magazine list is far more interesting than the others, which all seem like variations of the Pitchfork list (in other words, a little stuck in an indie rock nostalgia). Putting Burial at #1 is a far more inspired choice than The Strokes, Arcade Fire, or The White Stripes.
― untrue pitch, Saturday, 5 December 2009 01:41 (3 years ago) Permalink
definitely agree with the high placements of Untrue, Alcachofa, and This Bliss.
― Dan S, Saturday, 5 December 2009 02:31 (3 years ago) Permalink
FACT list is great. I sort of expected placings from Benga, Ellen Allien, Jay Haze, Roots Manuva, Hawtin's dex, fx, 909 mix, Omar S, Ghostface, Mr. Lif, Basement Jaxx, Santogold. I also thought that Isolee might take this. But I now have a dozen or so albums to check out. Great!

Herman, you rule. A very interesting list. I'm wondering, did Converge do so well in the year-end polls with those previous albums, or did the latest one help boost opinion of the others? It's also interesting how both Mastodon and Opeth did so well most of the decade, but their most recent didn't even make the list. Cool to see metalhead luv for Fugazi and Shellac. Would have been interesting if the reunited Jesus Lizard came out with an album this year. I'll still buy this issue when I find it.

FACT list does stand out and is full of stuff i like/love that wouldn't get a look in elsewhere, but the persisting inclusion and high rank of over-rated 'in every other top 10' LPs still annoys. they can't win. putting both Burial albums in the top 25 just seems silly too.

poor Drexciya's 'Neptune's Lair' LP came out 10 years ago this month iirc, too late for 90s lists and too early for 00s lists (not that it would get on 99% of them anyway but its probably better than 'Lifestyles Of The Laptop Cafe' which i also do like)

Loving these lists, especially to see the intersections and disagreements with my own. Closest so far is Whiney's, kind of surprising I guess but maybe not. All I can think of are the albums that didn't make it onto the list that really really should have.

Interesting to me, and it seems about right in terms of what I remember about electronic music in those years.

looooooool @ Wolf Parade at #5

Flipping through the list... kudos for including Joy Shapes, The Drift, Vocalcity, Laulu Laakson Kukista, Aaliyah, Endless Summer, Berlinette, Pop, Tronic, The Tired Sounds of..., This Bliss, Beauty and the Beat, Saint Dymphna, Lisbon (#26!!), Donuts, New Amerykah... these are all excellent and I'd like to see them more consistently on decade-end lists.
Kid A at #7 sounds about right.
New Amerykah at #4 is excellent, and the top 5 looks really solid... except for, uh, Wolf Parade.

I was making carrot cake when I realized that. I put bourbon in my cream cheese icing to make it less cheesy; the Avalanches somehow strike the same balance and avoid a slight half-step left to cheese-stache purgatory.

94 :: Fire Show - Saint the Fire Show (Perishable; 2002)
Awesome, I loved the Fire Show! Saw them open for Dalek and Eleventh Dream Day and one headline gig, then they split.
72 :: OOIOO - Armonico Hewa (Avex/Thrill Jockey; 2009)
Nice one, this album didn't get enough love.
Waiting a few months after the end of the decade was a good idea, one of the more interesting lists, though I don't care for the top 6.
