Hastily written lists

A friend of mine is currently putting a lot of thought into his top 10 albums of the decade (hi ruairi!)
I'm not, I wrote mine in 30mins, I've probably missed lots of amazing ones, and I haven't thought terribly much about it at all...and I can't narrow it past 14...and most of them are 2009... here is my rather rubbish run-down!

Emma's top albums of the noughties
Manic Street Preachers - Journal for Plague Lovers (2009)

  5. And already the regrets of not putting some albums on is hitting hard.
