Top 100 Music Albums of the 2000s by craab (2021)

My "best of" is really more accurately described as my "favorite." I do not claim to have heard every good album that should be considered for this chart and I also realize that the music I have heard and enjoyed has been influenced by my cultural location. The chart will change as I listen to more music.

Illinois stands on its own, but it's even more interesting when it is linked to this album. He said he was going to do all 50 states but that of course would have been impossible. What he did accomplish was creating a masterpiece about the Midwest, Great Lakes, and Rust Belt. I come from this part of the US and so I feel deeply grateful that works of art this beautiful were inspired by it. We do not have a lot of our own literature compared to the South or the coasts.

Johnny Cash was already a legend but the American project brought him to a new level. Thanks Rick Rubin. American I and II were already a huge accomplishment but American III and IV gave were recorded after Cash's health began to decline and so they were something else entirely. They helped the world see the beauty of someone elderly and mortal. American III and IV are a testimony to Cash but also to human dignity. Bowie's Dark Star and Leonard Cohen's You Want it Darker are spiritual descendants to American III and IV. [First added to this chart: 11/24/2021]

Carlile is an out of this world talent. This is her best album in my opinion. The twins (her back up band) really need more credit for how much they contribute. They co-write a lot of the songs and their harmonies add a lot of texture. They were in a punk band before joining up with Brandi and that gives Carlile's music a different kind of edge,.

Another BEA discovery. I must admit that the singer's voice can grate on me by the end of the album, but the songwriting is great both musically and lyrically. This is their best album. [First added to this chart: 11/24/2021]
