I’ve been delving into a lot of albums that encapsulated that decade for me recently. I’ve just listened to Gossip’s ‘Standing in the way of Control’ and that LP still stands up. Be interested to hear anyone else’s picks from 2000-2009, maybe some top fives? 😀

Love that album! As you say, still holds up, IMHO they never got the attention they deserved!

Oh my.... don't get me started! This could go on for awhile!

One of my favorites was Lemon Jelly - KY which never gets old.

Amy Winehouse - Back To Black

Norah Jones - Come Away With Me (absolutely love this album)

The Streets - Original Pirate Material

Eminem - The Eminem Show
Eminem - Marshal Mathers LP

Sigur Ros - ()
Sigur Ros - Aegitus Birjun

Coldplay - Parachutes (I know, love hate but one of my favorites)

Justin Timberlake - FutureSex/LoveSounds (If you tell anyone I rate this I'll deny it)

Daft Punk - Discovery

Some very diverse choices there! I genuinely wouldn’t have guessed Norah Jones as one of yours. No objections to any of the others, everyone loves a bit of JT. And Sigur Rós are great. Like most people, I discovered them by hearing Hoppípolla when I watched the first series of Planet Earth, I then devoured their back catalogue over the next few months.

My top five, in no particular order...

Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven

OutKast - Speakerboxx/The Love Below

LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver

The Coral - The Coral

Danger Mouse - The Grey Album

Some great choices there! You included a couple I had to leave out, Arctic Monkeys first album remains an absolute classic. If I’d had a top six it’d be a close call between that and White Blood Cells by The White Stripes.

And an honourable mention to The Streets. @SpyderTracks correctly picked Original Pirate Material as the more important album but I listened to A Grand Don’t Come For Free this afternoon and that LP tells a story in almost operatic fashion.

Had to delve into my album collection to see what came from the 2000s as most of the CDs I own are from the 90s. Most of my favourites are from the first few years of the decade with a few from later on:

Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory: One of my Top 10 all-time favourite albums

The rest, in no particular order:

Forever Faithless - The Greatest Hits
Dido - No Angel & Life For Rent
Evanescence - Fallen
The Prodigy - Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned & Their Law The Singles
The Gladiator Soundtrack
Clannad - In A Lifetime (best of album)
Sasha and John Digweed - Communicate

Special Mention: The Golden Years of Glenn Miller 3CD Compilation. A favourite of mine as I was in a Swing Band in Secondary School and we played a lot of Glenn Miller music. Played the Trombone same as Glenn did
