I’m finding y’all’s lists surprisingly disappointing… Bright Eyes? The Decemberists? Death Cab? Post rock at all?? I guess I’m just better than everybody else.

Is it your time for silly teasing or are you serious, Nate?
Nate: I love me my post-rock. Sorry bud.
Another addition to the lists: Battles’ “Mirrored”.
Trampin: A little bit of both.

Is This It sounded great when it came out but didn’t last. It blends in with the stuff that copied it. I think the only reason it was so highly rated at first is it was a combination of it seeming more unique and the Britpop hype machine.

I was listening to My Chemical Romance today and I was thinking that If I had a top 10 list list The Black Parade has to be on that list.
Yankee Hotel FoxtrotLate RegistrationElephantFuneral
Radiohead – “Kid A”
Radiohead – “In Rainbows”
Radiohead – “Amnesiac”
Radiohead – “Hail to the Thief”
And right after The Beatles of our age, I would like to name these ones:
The Strokes – “Is This It”
The Libertines – “Up the Bracket”
Eminem – “The Marshall Mathers LP”
… together with a few other classics like “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below”, “Late Registration”, “Elephant” and “The Rising”, I think.

Anything ever related to Bob Dylan in the 2000s because obviously.
@UMBERTO L. I wanted to put “The Rising” on my list but, even as a big fan of the Boss, I couldn’t do it. I do think it’s his best record of the decade though. Also, how is “Late Registration” making the list before “College Dropout”? Kanye’s debut will remain his best in my opinion especially because of the tracks “Two Words”, “Through The Wire”, “Breathe In/Breathe Out”.
Here are a few
Radiohead – In Rainbows
Radiohead – Amnesiac
Sigur Rós – ( )
Sigur Rós – Ágætis Byrjun
Interpol – Turn on the Bright Lights
Sneaker Pimps – Bloodsport
Daft Punk – Discovery
The Jezabels – She’s So Hard, Dark Storm EPs
M83 – Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts (this is my favorite album of all time)
Ladytron – Witching Hour
Air – 10,000Hz Legend
“The Rising” undoubtedly is a great record for whoever likes the Boss. Talking about Kanye West, I agree on “The College Dropout” being a beautiful record (don’t forget “All Falls Down” and “Jesus Walks”), though I enjoyed more the singles from “Late Registration” probably because they were broadcast compulsively even here in Italy, where rap music was not so popular at the time.
In the past, I’ve been into both metal and prog rock, so Mastodon are a fave recent band of mine. Their album Crack the Skye is ferocious in both its aggressive power and its creativity, and has to be a candidate for album of the decade so far for me.
