Top 29 Music Albums of the 2000s by PeterSmith (2019)

« View previous chartView next chart »

OK, these are the best albums from this decade that I have heard (out of about 100 albums). I have not included all those I have heard as some just don't deserve a mention! I have therefore only included those that I have really enjoyed. Here are the first 25 and I'll probably get as far up as 60/100

A Rush Of Blood To The HeadUnited Kingdom Coldplay
Indie Rock
I kinda came late to Coldplay even though I liked their singles. There is a lot of Coldplay bashing - similar to U2 - which I think is because of three things:
1. They are huge and popular
2. Their front man comes across a bit aloof and smug
3. You can always tell it is them - they have a bit of a formula

I don't mind any of those reasons as I'm only listening to their songs and I like their formula.

I had the equally excellent Parachutes in 2015 and got this in 2016 and it is a near perfect opening half of the album with Politik (4/5) followed by In My Place; God Put A Smile Upon Your Face; The Scientist and then Clocks (all 5/5). Only track that doesn't quite land with me is "A Whisper" and even then I heard it recently and thought it was better than I remembered.

GraduationUnited States Kanye West
Rap
Whatever kinda rubbish comes out Kanye West nowadays, there is no doubt that he produced some cracking albums back in the day. I only got this album in 2018 off the back of College Drop Out and I can't find a bad track on this album. From the start of the album he delivers great track after great track - smart beats and lyrics and great sampling including Daft Punk.
I love every single track on this album, but give an extra nod to Homecoming and Big Brother - all about his relationship with mentor Jay Z.
Can't agree with where his head is at the moment, but can't deny the quality of music he has delivered.

This Is The LifeUnited Kingdom Amy MacDonald
Pop
I got this album about 2010 and should declare that like Amy I am also from Scotland - but I don't think that influenced my decision here. It was not my normal album and can't quite recall how I got it - I suspect it may have been my Mrs.
But this is full of intelligent pop tunes - darker than the standard pop "I love the boy/girl" with good social and political observations - the excellent Youth of Today is a prime example - "My children weren't the same, My children's children they're the ones to blame. And you say,
In my day we were better behaved" - observing the usual generational view of things were rosy in the past.
And the Footballer's Wives dig at Reality Celebrity - "And the girl from that show, yes the one we all know, she thinks she's some kinda star, yes you know who you are."

Hopes And FearsUnited Kingdom Keane
Alternative - Pop
I enjoyed their singles at the time and got this about 2005.
She Has No Time and Bedshaped are two glorious songs.
The entire album is keyboard led without a guitar in sight with strong ballads throughout.

Join With UsUnited Kingdom The Feeling
Rock - Progressive Pop
I got this 2009 off the back of the singles. I liked the vocal of Dan Gillespie-Sells which reminded me a bit of Suede's Brett Anderson.
This band - and this album - is energetic and fun with excellent lively tracks throughout - Join With Us, Turn It Up, Loneliness to name a few.

You can hear influences from 10cc and Supertramp with excellent backing vocal arrangements throughout.

Final StrawUnited Kingdom Snow Patrol
Indie Rock
It took me until 2016 to get this album as part of my drive to get back into music and looking at top 100 charts through this website.
I enjoyed their singles in the background but during the 2000s I was only half listening to the radio and couldn't really distinguish between the bands really so never got round to following up with albums.
This album has two of my top 100 songs in Run and Chocolate - fantastic.
There are many great tracks on this album - 14 songs although only 53 minutes long thanks to 5 short under 3 minute tracks (almost like a 50/60's album in terms of the timings there)

West Ryder Pauper Lunatic AsylumUnited Kingdom Kasabian
Alternative / Punk
I got this almost at release time but can't recall what hooked me onto them.
It must have been the singles at the time with the excellent Where Did All The Love Go? along with Fire Vlad The Impaler and the thumping Underdog.

I love nearly every song on here but maybe struggle a bit with the instrumental Swarfiga, but what an excellent and lively album.

For Emma, Forever AgoUnited States Bon Iver
Indie Folk/Rock
Only picked this up earlier in 2018 and the passion and heartfelt delivery of these delicate tunes by Justin Vernon is outstanding. I absolutely adore the opener "Flume" and love the tracks like "Skinny Love", "Wolves" "Blindsided" and "For Emma" but there are no weak tracks on this superb album.

Black Holes And RevelationsUnited Kingdom Muse
Alternative
Another album I picked up in 2016 through looking at charts on this site. Hadn't really hooked into their singles or knew who they were but loved the energy and tempo from first listen with this. Quickly followed up with Origin Of Symmetry which established with me as a top band and quickly got their back catalogue. But this was my first Muse album and remains my favourite - Starlight and Knights of Cydonia re two excellent songs, the first making me wish I could sing when I do belt it out (in private lol)

xxUnited Kingdom The xx
Indie Rock
Only got this in 2018 after hearing their song - Intro - sampled on a hip-hop track. Loved it then recalled it had featured on things like BBC elections and other similar events. It is a top tune - and sets the tone for the album which is minimal with echo guitar and low key duel vocals
