I know it's only the beginning of the end but these two must be the best albums of the last decade 8-)

Those would definitely be in the top albums of 2016, for me...

Agree with A Moonshaped Pool but haven’t heard the Underworld one.

I would suggest Tales of Us by Goldfrapp and
Tomorrow’s Harvest by Boards Of Canada.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

I find it odd how many people revere this album. I find it mostly dull and partially sounding like a modern disney soundtrack album.

I find it very samey, and it really doesn't improve with repeated listening. The old problem of writing the same song over and over again.

which you cannot say about either of Len's choices. Two albums which just get better and better with age.

Do we include 2010 in this? If so, Olod Arnalds' Innundir Skinni should be present. Otherwise, it's all about the angry women:
