Time for me to start up my list. Just a note: I'm not adding any artists to my list with any less than four albums currently out. I don't think that's enough to weigh in a fully balanced list, even if those few albums have touched me enough. My #10 choice is Sonic Youth. I love alternative with a lot of lead in it, and the Youth delivers. Daydream Nation is an obvious choice for my favorite and the one I come back to the most.
