This is not a typical "Best of the decade" list. To be more precise, it's a list about the top 20 albums of each year of the last decade (the ones in MS), in my perspective of course. In this way, a lot of good albeit overlooked albums can get some exposure, in addition to covering more ground at the same time.

Subject to change, as I see fit.

Thanks. Both 2010 and 2011 have their respective lists so, albeit in a different way, it's been covered. The main emphasis as far as this list is concerned is to cover albums of the last decade (in a symmetrical manner, of course) that one could pick up in case he/she missed out on them.

Deathspell Omega's SMRC? It doesn't seem to belong to the MechanisT-y type of music but it's an AMAZING RECORD! Some of the best black metal out there that album is.

The MechanisT dabbles in various arts he is not so crafty at, black metal for example, and every now and then he encounters good stuff that deserves a mention. ;]
