* The Diamond Sea - Slow Signal
* Bare Arms - e.p.
* Arrows - Modern Art & Politics
* Lungs - Solitary, Poor, Nasty, Brutish, Short
* Lights Out - Lights Out
* Animal Shapes

That's my faves from this year. My biggest problem is finding great music that came out a few years ago, so it can't make the list

Loved Fergus Brown's 'Burgers Frown' album. It seemed whimsical but had an undercurrent laden with some heavier stuff, a bit like this year, which seemed trivial but actually had a hell of a lot going on.

Also have a soft spot for the Faux Pas remix of Paul Dempsey's 'Ramona was a waitress', which embodied the trend of Aussie musos remixing other Aussie musos' stuff. All very fraternal.

Album of the decade: 'Cities' by The Cat Empire Project. Largely overlooked by commercial radio as too challenging (and overlooked by community radio because it came from a band that has had commercial success) it embraced musicality with cheeky lyrics, had its feet on Australian shores with ears to world music and was just too far ahead of its time to attain the success it deserved.

Can't say I've heard a great deal of Aussie albums from this year, but I really liked Grand Salvo - Soil Creatures. Oh, and I also liked Lisa Mitchell's Wonder but it's probably not very cool to like an ex-aussie idol, is it.

Top 10 Aussie albums of the decade:

1. Eddy Current Suppression Ring - Primary Colours
2. Darren Hanlon - Hello Stranger
3. The Drones - Galah Mill
4. Dirty Three - Whatever You Love, You Are
5. Art Of Fighting - Second Storey
6. Grand Salvo - The Temporal Wheel
7. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - And No More Shall We Part
8. Augie March - Sunset Studies
9. You Am I - Dress Me Slowly
10. Decoder Ring - Somersault Soundtrack
