Niice!! I can't take any list seriously that doesn't include Future Sex/Love Sounds on it. Serious KoS score.
I loved that album so much when it came out. That album was a stunner for me, because I didn't expect it from him at all. I would be ecstatic if Justin Timberlake randomly showed up on next year's Bonnaroo lineup and was scheduled for Late Night Which.

Another thing I'm surprised by on these lists so far: I didn't know Sound of Silver was considered the better LCD Soundsystem album over This Is Happening. I'll be interested to see which one finished higher on the tallied list.
^ along that line, I think I'm the only person whose favorite White Stripes album is De Stijl
You're not the only one. Although the difference between De Stijl, White Blood Cells and Elephant is microscopically small for me.
And yeah Sound of Silver is definitely better if you ask me; "One Touch" and "Somebody's Calling Me" bring down This Is Happening for me.
Agreed on Somebody's Calling Me. But I do like One Touch. Somebody's Calling Me is the only thing that kept that album from being a 10 for me. They came so damn close to making a flawless album in my eyes.
Just to clarify I'm not trying to knock it in any way. It's like Sound of Silver strong A and This is Happening normal A- for me. Not a massive difference, but I guess enough to feel sort of strongly about it.
Any list with Radiohead, Spiritualized, Magnolia Electric Co, Wilco, MMJ, Elliott Smith, Arcade Fire & Sufjan in the Top 25 gets mad props from me. Bravo, sir. You are my musical soul brother! But I'd totally bump Tom Waits' "Mule Variations" higher...and replace Jay-Z w/The National's "High Violet."
In addition to many of yours, my list (had I made one!) would've also included:
Mumford & Sons - Sigh No More The Decemberists - The Hazards of Love; The Crane Wife Arcade Fire - The Suburbs Damien Rice - O Elbow - The Seldom Seen Kid Editors - An End Has a Start The Frames - The Cost; Fitzcarraldo Glen Hansard - Once soundtrack Mogwai - Rock Action Ray LaMontagne - Till the Sun Turns Black Wilco - A Ghost is Born Morphine - The Night Peter Gabriel - Up Joseph Arthur - Redemption's Son Ryan Adams - Gold; Cold Roses Rufus Wainwright - Poses Pete Yorn - musicforthemorningafter Alexi Murdoch - Time Without Consequence Beastie Boys - Hello Nasty Beck - Guero The Civil Wars - Barton Hollow Drive-By Truckers - Dirty South Death Cab for Cutie - Plans DMB - Before These Crowded Streets Coldplay - Yellow; X&Y (I know...lame & sappy!) Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Bob Mould - The Last Dog & Pony Show Iron & Wine - Our Endless Numbered Days Pela - Anytown Graffiti Gomez - How We Operate Holy F*ck - Latin emancipator - soon it will be cold enough Andrew Bird - Armchair Apocrypha Phoenix - Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix Broken Social Scene - Forgiveness Rock Record Rodrigo y Gabriela - s/t Tori Amos - Boys for Pele Thom Yorke - The Eraser Mutemath - s/t M83 - Saturdays = Youth Moby - Play; 18 Morrissey - You Are the Quarry Doves - Kingdom of Rust Kasabian - s/t A Perfect Circle - Mer de Noms; Thirteenth Step Tool - Aenima Muse - Black Holes and Revelations Porcupine Tree - Lightbulb Sun; In Absentia Richard Thompson - Sweet Warrior Rubyhorse - Goodbye to All That Robbie Robertson - Contact from the Underworld of Redboy Röyksopp - The Understanding Kate Havnevik - Melankton Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings - 100 Days, 100 Nights The Devlins - Waiting The Jayhawks - Rainy Day Music The Shins - Wincing the Night Away The Wood Brothers - Ways Not to Lose
Damn. I really should've made a list before the poll closed! But trying to RANK THESE? Yeah, right!

I was having a lot of trouble trying to sort and save my list because it kept erasing, so I re-made over 5 lists and was remaking them as quickly as possible (I eventually tried it in another browser and it worked). This means it is not 100% what I would call my top 100, but close. I also picked all except 1 album from the Pitchfork master list. The overall list is not sorted, but my top 10 is close to my actual top 10. peopleslist.pitchfork.com/list/20e3fe11/
