The 100 Finest albums of the 2010’s

The albums listed below are my 100 favorite albums of the decade, with entries ranging from 2010 to 2019.
Please understand that this ranked list is purely based upon my personal preference.

Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues
1.
100
Album of the Decade!

Helplessness Blues holds a mirror in front of society and culture, to show how utterly helpless we are in a complicated world. It is an interesting and important portrait of the human condition. Not to mention, the absolutely stunning harmonized vocals and, luscious production. It’s an album I kept returning to, time and time again.
Tim Hecker - Virgins
2.
100
Tim Hecker’s Virgins, is in every sense of the word, a sonic feat. An album that only around 30 minutes of runtime, throws your emotions in a washing machine, rakes them across hot coals and then leaves them to be sun baked on a winters day.. No album this decade has completely singed my emotions in such a dramatic way.
Kendrick Lamar - good kid, m.A.A.d. city
3.
99
Unpopular Opinion:
Kendrick Lamars good kid, m.A.A.d. city is better than TPAB. What is so incredible about this record is it’s honesty and sincerity. The instrumentals, the lyricism, and story, is so compelling yet gritty, which makes it my favorite Hip-Hop album of the decade, it was able to convey a sense of humbleness and power at the same time. Not many hip-hop albums have achieved this level of depth.
Kamasi Washington - The Epic
4.
98
Simply put The Epic is, an epic achievement, spread across three hours of run-time, Kamasi Washington steered Jazz as a whole in the direction of prosperity. Revitalizing Jazz from the top down, in an exciting new manner.
Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool
5.
97
We only got two Radiohead albums this decade one rather weak and the other, effortlessly exceptional.

Favorite Track: True love waits, and Daydreaming.
Destroyer - Kaputt
6.
96
Released at the beginning of the decade, Dan Bejar and company released one of their most polished, accessible and all around enjoyable albums to date. There really is something everybody can enjoy here
Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly
7.
95
Simply put To PImp a Butterfly is a conceptual feat, and a breakthrough for Hip-Hop, no album before it or after it sounds the way it does.While it’s not my favorite Kendrick record, it is clear that TPAB, is a masterpiece.
David Bowie - Blackstar
8.
95
Not many people have released albums that prophecies their death, but David Bowie did. Blackstar is the result and culmination of one of modern musics most iconic individuals body of work. On Blackstar bowie faced death.
Queens of the Stone Age - ...Like Clockwork
9.
95
Queens of the Stone Age, crafted one of the best rock albums of the 2010s. A highly memorable and worthwhile affair, that further solidifies the band legendary status.
Shabazz Palaces - Black Up
10.
95
While it arrived near the beginning of the decade, Shabazz Palaces, Black Up remains one of the most fascinating and complicated abstract hip-hop release, with it excellent mind-bending production, and thoughtful lyrics, Black Up is a modern Hip-Hop classic.
Little Women - Throat
11.
95
Incredibly underrated Avante-Garde masterpiece with some of the most mind-blowing and ear splitting instrumentation you will ever hear.
Flying Lotus - Cosmogramma
12.
94
Electronic Album of the Decade!

Flying Lotus created a unique sound in the 2010s, fusing elements of Hip-hop, IDM, and Jazz music to create the most stimulating formula for electronic music. Cosmogramma, I think is his most iconic of the albums he released this decade, I believe because of how revolutionary it was when it was released and even to this day!
Iceage - Plowing Into the Field of Love
13.
94
Iceage had an incredible run of three albums in the earlier part of the decade that boasted raw angsty emotions that were very memorable. The last of those three records was Plowing into the field of Love, a complete masterpiece that magnificently built upon the raw Post-punk sound, with lush and expansive production and compelling vocals.
Ariel Pink - pom pom
14.
93
In an ideal world of pop music, Ariel Pink would be THE pop star, but in my world he is THE pop star.
Fiona Apple - The Idler Wheel
15.
93
Fiona Apple’s The idler Wheel is really the sound of an artist who has come full circle. The sound of an artist who has perfected her craft.
