Quite a few people who use or lurk on this board will currently be compiling their top ten northern irish albums of the decade.
So thought it might be useful if people suggested some albums (or indeed put forward their own!!) that may have been forgotten about....
(and indeed, who would you pick?)
Did AU not ask the same question less than a week ago?
Ha! Aye, it's linked in the related threads (deadline is Monday ;) ). We (AU) are looking for your top 20 Irish albums, north or south.
apologies, seeing that thread now, though it would still be useful to have some suggestions as i guarantee anyone who votes will end up kicking themselves for forgetting about a load of great albums when they see the final list!
to get you started, some off the top of me head....
we've had great albums from the answer, asiwyfa, olympic lifts, robyn g shiels, sirocco MCs, desert hearts, snow patrol, duke special, divine comedy, alloy mental and boxcutter in the last ten years
Jinx Lennon. Know your station gouger nation
tracer amc - islands.
proper masterpiece. one of my favourite albums by anyone, ever.
had a hard time listing twenty though - glad i remembered distant hearts, a little closer by joan of arse.
Seriously though. Three Tales is probably my favourite of the last decade. Holmes has had a few contenders too - Holy pics was class. Really loved Regeneration by Divine Comedy but haven't gone back to it much in recent years.
Surprised you haven't The Thrills in there too Rigsy?
Niall, Deci, Anto, Rigsy - get your votes in!
And anyone else that wants to contribute. Deadline is Monday evening.

Yeah I'd really appreciate it if people reminded me of albums that came out this decade! I'm still working on my list. My mind keeps drawing blanks. I'm at 11 so far!
David Kitt- Small Moments
Desert Hearts- Let's get worse
Desert Hearts- Hotsy Tottsy Nagasaki
Robyn G Shiels- Lifetime of Midnights
David Kitt- Nightsaver
and another couple!
Both Cat Malojian albums.
231 albums have been voted for so far. That's quite impressive innit?
