Top 25 Albums of the Decade

Last week I came across a special section on Rolling Stone magazine's website that had several artists list their top 25 albums and songs of the decade. I disagreed and came up with two lists on my own: The first one for my top 25 albums of the last 10 years and the second for the top 50 songs.
