MML's Top 10 Albums of the 2000s (+1)
I couldn’t pick just 10.
Despite feeling for a long time that the past decade in music sucked big-time, eventually I really thought about it and realized it wasn’t as bad as all that. As early as last spring, my editor knee started aching as clouds formed for the downpour of “top 10 albums of the ’00s” lists soon to come. Having arrived in Paris in May 2004, I see only three of these records have been released since I’ve been living in Europe. Bygones. Forthwith: my favorite albums list of the aughties, plus one. (Apologies in advance to everyone who thought my tastes were super-eclectic 100% of the time; the list is pop with a Warholian “P.”)
Radiohead, Kid A
Jay-Z, The Blueprint
Kanye West, Late Registration
Beck, Sea Change
Madonna, Confessions on a Dance Floor
Coldplay, A Rush of Blood to the Head
Justin Timberlake, FutureSex/LoveSounds
Kanye West, 808s & Heartbreak
And please, list your list below.
