I don't have the patience to rank my favorite albums of the decade. But The Wrens' Meadowlands is by far my favorite album of the decade, and perhaps of all time. I believe the right music has a way of finding you at the right time. The Pixies' guttural screams were just the right soundtrack for my teenage years. In the same way, The Meadowlands was the soundtrack of my twenties. I entered the decade out of college, lived the startup life, fell in love, got married, and as the new decade begins, I have a kid on the way. No album captures the joys and heartaches of these life-altering transitions better than The Meadowlands.
