Anyways, for this poll, the options I gave were bands that have done a lot of work this decade and are very well liked by the kind of people that would be interested in this sort of thing. First place ended up being a (unsurprising) tie between Radiohead and Animal Collective. Both groups have put out at least four albums this decade, and basically every album by both groups is considered to be at least quite good, if not great. I like both bands, so I'm not going to argue much. (Though I certainly prefer Animal Collective.) There was a two-way tie for second place as well. This was between LCD Soundsystem and The Books. Once again, these are both groups that put out multiple very good albums this decade. (Wilco and Outkast both failed to get any votes.)
For the next poll, I'm going to ask you about your favorite record labels of the decade. I realize that a lot of people don't pay too much attention to labels, but, when it comes down to it, some labels are better than others. They release better music, they release more music, they release cool compilations, they do all around cool things, etc. So vote!
