Discogs has unveiled their best 200 albums of the past decade. The scoring comes from the physical records that people have bought the most of or have requested the most. At number one is a surprise artist and album: Daft Punk's 2013 LP Random Access Memories.
The list compiles people’s purchases and requests in vinyl, cassette, CD and other physical formats.
The number two album is somewhat tragic – David Bowie’s final record Blackstar. Elsewhere in the top 200 he has two other records, The Next Day (No. 27), and his posthumous EP, No Plan (No. 184). Kendrick Lamar’s dominance in this chart is punctuated by Good Kid M.A.A.D City at three. His acclaimed follow-up, To Pimp a Butterfly, comes in at No. 7, while his 2017 album DAMN (No. 15) and his 2016 compilation Untitled Unmastered (No. 93) also appear.
The rest of the top ten rounds out with a lot of rock music. Radiohead is at four with A Moon Shaped Pool, Arctic Monkeys with AM (No. 5), Tame Impala with Currents (No. 6), Jack White with Lazaretto (No. 9) and Arcade Fire with The Suburbs (No. 10). Lana Del Rey is the sole woman with her debut Born To Die (2012) at number eight. She has also has three projects in the top 200 with three other titles in the Top 200, including Ultraviolence (No. 37), Honeymoon (No. 116) and Paradise (No. 133).
