Oh sure -- not a big fan of Little Honey or Viva La Vida!

I was actually mourning a lot of albums I left out of the top 50 -- Challengers, Acid Tongue, sundirtwater, Run to Ruin... etc etc.

Wow, I'd love to see how you "No way I can stop at 10" folks would do with a "What's the one single CD you'd take to a desert island (or want to be buried with)?" exercise. :)

In addition to a few that others have mentioned, I wanted to add, The Avett Brothers' Emotionalism to the mix as a great record of the 21st century.
If I died, he'd hear about it, eventually.
