You didn't just "explain yourself and claim to know what you meant" you told me that I couldn't have an opinion on music becaue I wasn't old enough. Just because you couldn't appreciate music until you were 16 or 17 doesn't mean that I have the same problem, and I don't think you have to be 18 years old at the beginning of a decade to be able to fully judge it. That would mean that almost any current music writer wouldn't be able to have a valid opinion on the 60's. Think about it for a second.
i didnt say you couldnt have an opinion, i just said that you werent capable of writing a top 250 albums list of the last ten years. thats really not an insult, it sounds like it'd be a pretty heavy task. and when youre 18 or 19 or 20 youll realize how dumb you were at 16. and im sure at 30 we'll all realize how dumb we were at 20.

i think i misworded my statement then. obviously, someone who is 30 years old or older has had time to revisit plenty of work from the 60s if he chose to do so. so yes, current writers could have top album lists from that decade and decades past. but they arent 16 or 19 or even 25. thats another decade of time to listen to stuff and learn.

I appreciate you being reasonable in the first paragraph, but it's just one huge assumption. I already made a list of the top 100 albums from the decade and I have listened to all of those albums a huge number of times, enough that I can make a very fair judgment on them. You're right, 250 would probably be a stretch, but that doesn't alter my original point.

And thanks for clarifying that last part, obviously didn't make sense to me at first.

i think that although you maybe have made a list of 100 albums, it might not be entirely accurate because of what i said before. although you have listened to those 100 many times, there could be 50 more albums that plenty of people consider to be in the top 100 of the decade that you've never heard. im just saying.

i think what ill do for the next decade is a maybe like a top list of albums every year, which would vary in length depending on the number of albums that come out and how many of them are sw33t jamz, then that narrows down the choices for the decade list. again, its not easy task.

I'm sure that's correct. There are thousands of album that I haven't heard from this decade. Me being 18 at the beginning of this decade would probably barely dent that number. I understand you're thinking, but there is no way for me or anyone else to listen to every album that people consider to be a top 100 album of the decade.

maybe. but think about it this way. just by being actively engaged in this website, just by reading reviews and looking at news posts, you can manage to hear many if not all of the "best" albums of the year, as considered by the people in the scene. for example, i think this year i can make a fairly accurate list, of course the list will be propelled by your own tastes, but i think i am informed enough to make one. if you can keep up with all the releases every year of a decade, then you can have a very well-informed list at the end of it.

Professional Cheap HDMI Cables

Each HDMI connector integrates 19 cable pairs that must be of precisely the same length (and other corresponding factors) in order to accurately transmit the digital bits that make up digital audio and video signals. These bits must arrive at their destination in a perfectly synchronized fashion in order for the components on the receiving end to properly interpret the data. Therefore, all commercially available HDMI cables are designed, manufactured and tested to extremely tight tolerances before they can be emblazoned with the official HDMI logo.
