AU & Nialler9’s Top Irish albums of the Decade

, AU & Nialler9’s Top Irish albums of the Decade Anyone sick of lists yet? Me neither. Today sees AU Magazine release their Irish albums of the decade list in which they asked for the public’s help and the results are out in the new mag now.

Take a look at the top 50 after the jump where a very recent 2009 album takes the top spot. As you’d expect from a Belfast-based mag, the list is fairly Northern-centric but most of the albums deserve to be there. I’d imagine this is the last time you’ll see some Snow Patrol related post on this here blog 🙂

After the top 50 you can see my own personal top 20 Irish albums of the decade list.
