The 2010s are at an end and although it’s mid-summer; Winter is coming! While researching and compiling this list, we were often shocked that some albums were already several years old! Doesn’t it feel like Post Malone just popped on the charts like last year? Well, to us it does. Regardless, this past decade has been an amazing era of music as social media and the internet as a whole has changed the game to how we discover new artists and how an artist can rise to fame and glory on their own means. Even though we now have to accept that our children won’t know what DVDs are, we all can still escape into the sounds or relate to our favorite artist’s stories of struggle, falling in or out of love, or maybe just maybe try to interpret whatever Thom Yorke is talking about with his abstract lyrical style.
Our favorite artists’ records can become our friends or lovers in a way. They are the Tinder date that does not waste your time or the friend that does not stab you in the back. Side note: If your Tinder date says they don’t like music… RUN! That’s not a human, that is a lizard-person! That lizard person might be beautiful, but remember that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Similarly, musical taste is as well. Here at Music Unfiltered, we recognize this. So this list is semi in random order. Please do not be angry that we missed your favorite album. If that is you, don’t break your computer. Especially if it is a Macbook, it is just as expensive to fix the screen as it is to buy a new one. So without further ado, here is our list of the top 15 greatest albums of the past decade!
