Is this for any albums after 2000? Or only albums released from 2000-2009? Because Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, among other things, probably belongs in my top 20.

That's an ambiguity that only applies to the first decade, isn't it.  Once you get past the 1st decade, it's always perfectly clear.  

 

How to make it clearer? I guess he should have said something like "of the 2000-naughts" or something like that...

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot slowly moving up the list. Is probably top 6 or so now.

There is baseball, and occasionally there are other things of note

Agreed.

 

I don't know I'd put it ahead of Is This It, though.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Meteora and Hybrid Theory both released in the 2000's.  Apparently people forget that.

Yea...any album by Linkin Park is not considered.

It's now #3. This gets better and better with each listen. Check it out if you haven't yet. Please.

I wouldn't have it that high but it's an excellent album. We are in agreement for once. Ripped it off of Napster before it was illegal.

Glad no one included Animal Collective or Panda Bear because they're fucking terrible.

My top 5:

 

1. Walkmen, You & Me

2. Arcade Fire, Funeral

3. Radiohead, In Rainbows

4. The Strokes, Is This It

5. The National, Boxer

 

I feel like everyone has a band that feels like the music is meant specifically for them...The Walkmen were that for me.

 

Been listening to a lot of Wolf Parade/Spencer Krug lately....Apologies to the Queen Mary has to be in that top 5. Probably at #4.

 

Krug is an amazing, amazing song writer. The best of the millennium.

 

Pedro, for all the emphasis you put on Hold Steady lyrics, check out Krug if you haven't already. The guy is a mad genius.
