Sorry for slacking for a week or so. Here's our last list: the Oughties, Zeroes, whatever. Tough decade, with the coming of age of indie music and no real overriding trend, such as Grunge in the 90s.

Have fun!

    No Order:
    Ryan Adams - Heartbreaker
    The Raconteurs - Consolers of the Lonely
    The White Stripes - Icky Thump
    The Dead Weather - Horehound
    The Arcade Fire - Funeral
    Green Day - American Idiot
    Radiohead - Kid A
    Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
    The Hold Steady - Boys and Girls in America

    If I could add more than one artist, there would be every Arcade Fire album.

    Believe me, when I was growin up, I thought the worst thing you could turn out to be was normal, So I say freaks in the most complementary way. Here's a song by a fellow freak - E.V
  • I posted this on Facebook last year and will just copy and paste it here. Since you are asking for one per artist, I'd take out Neon Bible and throw in Pearl Jam's S/T (Avocado).

    Listed alphabetically:

    Ryan Adams Heartbreaker - Four words. Come. Pick. Me. Up. Sure there's more. I'm not really going to put an album on here because of one song am I?

    Arcade Fire Funeral - I cannot praise this album enough. One of the best debut albums ever created.

    Arcade Fire Neon Bible - The only band to appear twice, this album may actually be a little more consistent than their debut and completely destroys any fear of a sophomore slump.

    The Dresden Dolls Yes, Virginia - Nobody knows how much I like this album. Until now.

    The Flaming Lips Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots - They hit an all-time creative peak with The Soft Bulletin and this album continues that mix of weirdness with catchy melodies.

    R.E.M. Accelerate - This proves that they can still make an incredible album if they want to. Easily the most biased pick on this list but I don't care because it's that good.

    Sufjan Stevens Come on Feel the Illinoise - I actually bought this album solely based on the fact that it was the highest scored album of 2004 according to Metacritic. I'm not usually that shallow but I soon found out why it was #1.

    The Strokes Is This It - It's not often that a band can match the hype and "internet buzz" of this day and age, but this debut album made it seem like they were truly worth it.

    The White Stripes White Blood Cells - Jack White was easily the busiest man of the last 10 years as it takes both hands to count the albums he made with various projects. This one however really put him (and this band) on the musical map.

    Wilco Yankee Hotel Foxtrot - Not bad for an album that got them dropped from their record label for not having any "hits". Of the four albums they put out during this time, this one shows a band not afraid to take risks in creating sounds and stylings that are completely their own.

    So far Pearl Jam is batting .444 in making it onto peoples' lists. Is it that the quality of music in general was so high, or that Pearl Jam slipped up that much, in people's opinions? (I think PJ's music stayed incredible, personally.)

    THAT'S IT!!! Rules need to be followed in my thread!!! :evil: :lol: :lol: 8-) :lol:

    Finally, here is my list, with random comments:

    Coldplay: A Rush of Blood to the Head - This band gets a bad rap, rightfully so with the plagiarism issues and all, but this album is just about perfect.
    Death Cab for Cutie: Plans - Hard choice over Transatlanticism for possibly my favorite band of the 00s
    Foo Fighters: One by One - underrated album with quintessential Foo sound
    Franz Ferdinand: Franz Ferdinand - it made my list even with the homoerotic song Michael
    Kings of Leon: Because of the Times - best combination of the ballsiness of the 1st 2 albums with the polish of their last 2 albums
    Muse: Absolution - stacked collection of awesome rocking songs with a progressive slant
    Pearl Jam: Pearl Jam (Avocado) - underrated album by Pearl Jam fans in general - my favorite 5-song finish on any PJ album
    Queens of the Stone Age: Songs for the Deaf - Album is practically perfect, except for all the stupid radio inserts throughout (which I edited out in iTunes), and features the best drummer of our generation. :D
    Radiohead: Kid A - except it gave them the electronica bug, unfortunately
    Silversun Pickups: Carnavas - there is a woman in the band, but the singer is a man

    The radio inserts in Songs for the Deaf are one of my favorite things about that album!

    20.Pearl Jam-Avocado
    21.John Frusciante-To Record Only Water For 10 Days
    22.High on Fire- Blessed Black Wings
    23.Greenhornes-Dual Mono
    24.John Butler Trio-Sunrise over Sea
    25.Opeth - Blackwater Park



    Also I know it is all personal preference and everything but I am shocked at the amount of people listing In Rainbows over Kid A. I guess it is because it is more accessible, but Kid A is one of the best records of all time, let alone the decade. Seriously, its a trail blazer.

    work = work +1;
    }system("pause");
    return 0;}

    oh wow...here it goes...

    1. Ryan Adams - Gold (hard to pick just one....Heartbreaker & Cold Roses are great too, but this is the one that first got my attention)
    2. Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (slam-dunk)
    3. Pearl Jam - Riot Act (their best since Vs, IMO)
    4. Steve Earle - Transcendental Blues (again, hard to pick just one, but this one was the soundtrack to my summer of 2000...along with Binaural, of course)
    5. Robert Plant & Allison Krauss - Raising Sand (unlikely pair, and such beautiful music)
    6. Lucinda Williams - World Without Tears (she'll break your heart if you listen too closely)
    7. Widespread Panic - Ball (tasty guitar riffs)
    8. Bob Dylan - Love and Theft (to me, forever associated with its release date of 9-11-01....which is weird because the music here always puts me in a good mood)
    9. Gov't Mule - The Deep End, vol. 1 (recommended to all bass guitarists or bass lovers)
    10. Black Crowes - Lions (love this one...always thought it was underrated)

    Wow, that was hard....already thinking of great stuff left off the list
