    And now the end is here, and so we face the final curtain... Yes folks, we're almost at the end of the Decade With No Name. And while every mag and its aunt will be rounding up the best albums released since 2000, we thought we'd do things slightly differently.

    That's why we're asking our staff, contributors and most importantly YOU, the readers, to tell us about the [b:cc0e621173]Irish[/b:cc0e621173] albums you have loved and hopefully not lost over the last 10 years. Compile a list of up to 20 albums, ranked in order, and email it to us - [b:cc0e621173]chris@iheartau.com[/b:cc0e621173] I'll then have the thankless (but probably fascinating, now I come to think of it) task of putting it all in a spreadsheet and coming up with a final countdown.

    The deadline for your lists is [b:cc0e621173]Monday, November 23[/b:cc0e621173]. Yes, time is tight, so get your thinking caps on and your lists in. Remember, we're looking for Irish albums only - north or south. And the Irish/UK release dates must have been since January 1, 2000.

    Happy listing!
    Chris

    Are you implying that people in Nunavut are morons and don't know what year it is, what a decade is and that the number 9 comes before 10?

    I've been stranded on a small, wet island in the North Atlantic, and even I know what year it is.

    One good thing about this poll is that there is no "shortlist" selected for you by "experts".

    Jeez. No, hence 'stranded' as opposed to living there permanently. I'm aware that Inuit people are engaged with the modern world. My (admittedly weak, throwaway) comment was nothing to do with them. Maybe I should have used a desert island instead of a barren wilderness. Anyway, it's been removed.

    Surely we need to hold off until the Suicide Dolphin Bombers make their eagerly awaited debut produced by Owen Morris?
    :O

    Yep, and we'd love as wide a spread of contributors and albums as possible. Fill yer boots.

    Well, it might not be released before 2010 and therefore can't be in the list

    Bump!

    The deadline for this is next Monday evening, so get your lists in. The overall list is taking shape but it's very tight at the top.

    There's a year left in this decade still.

    Though the same mistake was made at the end of the last century too.

    ;)

    Lies! You would say 2000 was the end of the Nineties then?

    There wasn't a year 0, so he has a point there.

    I read that the end of the 19th century in Britain was celebrated at the end of 1900. By 1999 we had presumably lost patience.

    Anyway, I'll make a list :D

    AD dating was invented until about 576,
    so there wasn't a year 1 either! Or a year 2. Or a ..,
