29 Dec Lola Staar's Top 10 Albums of the decade!!
Inspired by all the end of decade countdowns, I decided to craft one of my own!
I seriously researched and labored over my picks but the results seem quite obvious now that I have concluded! All of these albums shine as some of the decades most innovative, creative and enlightening aural creations! The tone of this list is surprisingly somber and introspective- with some M.I.A, White Stripes and Amy Winehouse to spice things up!
1. Arcade Fire- Funeral
2. Radiohead- Kid A
3. Sigur Ro’s- ( )
4. The White Stripes- Elephant
5. Arcade Fire- Neon Bible
6. M.I.A- Arular
7. U2- All That You Can’t Leave Behind
8. Bjork- Vespertine
9. Elliott Smith- Figure 8
10. Amy Winehouse- Back to Black
Music plays an essential role in all that I do. It is integral in the environment I cultivate in my shop and roller rink! It inspires my designs and dreams! I hope the music on this list will inspire you to swoon in dreams of the sparkling decade ahead!! Hurray for the terrific 2010’s!!
