Hopeless Case of a Kid in Denial: My Albums of the Decade
Lists are hard. You decide what goes on the list. You decide what order they go in. You worry about what people will think. You wonder have you missed anything. You add things in. You cross things out. You bang your fists. You curse the gods. You pour blood, sweat and tears onto the page. Finally at the end of it all you get to the shop and you realize you left your bloody list at home.
Anyway, enough about groceries. Here are my ten favourite albums of the last decade.
