i appreciate that he can sense the genuineness of it but can understand why andrew thinks the list is "lacking." some of you may remember andrew's first post here, which was dynamite: http://board.okayplayer.com/okp.php?az=show_topic&forum=17&topic_id=120973&mesg_id=120973&page=2 - despite his posts focusing heavily on electronic music for his first year or so here, i don't think he's referring to that in saying my list is "lacking," as i think he's referring to "indie," which i've freely admitted to him personally and to others is not something that excites me anymore, but anyone reading his posts in the last year or so knows how much it means to him. i respect his opinion. if i had extended my list to 100--which i didn't do because it starts to mean less after 50, besides being double the work (in addition to the ordering and writing, i also coded the entire thing for last.fm: http://www.last.fm/user/howisya/journal/2010/01/02/3axpr9_my_top_50_favorite_albums_of_the_decade_2000-2009)--then i'd have had room maybe for lcd soundsystem and tv on the radio, for example, but it'd still be what i enjoyed listening to for the last 10 years, not him, so it'd probably still be lacking compared with what he'd choose.
