Best Albums Of The 00s

Zincyams

The Top Ten

1 Kid A - Radiohead

Radiohead took a major risk with this album, completely changing styles that Pablo Honey, The Bends, and OK Computer had and diving into a pool of experimental music. The random mash of instruments, sounds, and vocals became a result that was one of the greatest albums of the 2000's if not of all time.

Josh groban, really? Kid A was the most unique and creative album the 2000s with such memorable songs such as idioteque, everything in its right place, how to disappear completely, the national anthem and (my personal favourite) motion picture soundtrack.

I don't often agree with Rolling stone, but when they rated this the best album of the decade my faith in them was restored, (temporarily). The perfect start to mediocre decade.

This is what I think is a classic and not groban's.

2 American Idiot - Green Day

So far this is the best album unto 21st century comes out Rolling Stone was saying how good it is
- iwalkalone56

Has one of the best songs of the 21st century on it - Jesus of Suburbia and why is Heart on top of the list? Never heard of them! - idolangelx13

What Sgt. Pepper was to 1960s and The Wall was to the 1970s is what American Idiot is to the 2000s. A wonderly crafted set of songs of similar themes within Rock Opera story. Its one of the few true works of art in music during the aughties.

Um otimo album, talvez nao o melhor, mas um otimo

Easily number one. Why is this so low. And why does that Michael Jackson album get so many votes on everything.

Out of these top 10 he's the only one that's still making good music or alive. This is what started it all.

Best Eminem album and one of my favourites

Easily the best album of all time. It has Numb, Faint, Somewhere I Belong, Breaking the Habit, From the Inside, and Lying From You. All six of those songs went on to be famous - alterbridgefan

Remove the 0 in its position
It deserves thst

One of my favorites (beside kid a and hybrid theory) - KidA

Meteora pode ate ser o melhor album do seculo 21

6 Funeral - Arcade Fire

It's a disgrace that this so far down on the list. Not only is this one of the best albums of the 00s, it's one of the best albums of all time. I'm also surprised that This is It-The Strokes is so far down when it is one of the most fun to listen to albums ever. - jackowacko1055

7 Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not - Arctic Monkeys

This album defines a whole generation and genre of music. Each song on this album is fantastic. It's all about the disheveled and messed up life of being a working class teenager and simply just trying to figure out your life. There's songs about dealing with fake and annoying people (still take you home, fake tales of San francisco, etc.), songs about young love (you probably couldn't see..., mardy bum, etc.), and sings about how rubbish your own town is ( a certain romance, when the sun goes down, etc.). One of the finest collection of songs of all time. Whether you're british or not, it's still a relatable and heart warming album that everyone should listen to at least once.

I prefer American Idiot really as in the best from the 00s but I should get my point across...

This is all the way down here due to the songs based around urban British life. Not relatable with Americans. This album is much stronger than half the crap above it. For one, it has cultural meaning from Britain in the 00s.

Linkin Park? Madonna? Mariah Carey? Surely it must just be Americans voting in this list, because Arctic Monkeys aren't as popular over there somehow. This is one of the greatest albums ever. Every song is brilliant and I don't know how it's all the way down at 40.

8 Is This It - The Strokes

This is one of the best albums of all time, let alone the 00's, and well I'm here, might as well complain about there being no In Rainbows in the top ten. There, I'm done.

Really? Josh Groban at the top? THIS is the best album, bringing back some of old rock and roll's essence into the 21st century.

Last nite, someday, trying your luck
This is the best album of the 00�'s

9 Stankonia - Outkast

This is a masterpiece, from beginning to end it showcased the duo dealing with problems and having thoughts ahead of their time.

10 Hybrid Theory - Linkin Park

What! 15 is madness, at least top 3, this sold 29 million copies! - aynjel

I Can Sit And Listen To This CD Over And Over Again - Dglass23

With this album I fell in love with music. Still Linkin Park's best work. Can listen this forever.

This is by far the best album of all times, not only the 00s. I love Linkin Park and this album and Ithink this one should by number 1

The Contenders

11 Speakerboxxx / the Love Below - Outkast
12 Harem - Sarah Brightman

this is one of the most wonderful album that I ever hear - straffon

13 Hopes and Fears - Keane

Not only is it a great album, but Josh Groban? Come on! This makes Josh Groban look like something that belongs in a petting zoo. - minimac93

VOTE FOR KEANE!!! they are the best british band and this is their best album! - Lonelykeanefan

An excellent sound. Beautiful. Passion and emotion burns behind the soft tones and ethereal vocals. Influences from Radiohead, Coldplay, u2 and others, but a unique sound all its own]

Without a shadow of a doubt..this should be number 1 - keanelover

14 Madvillainy - Madvillain
15 Awake - Josh Groban

Why is this no. 1

Are you serious guys? Why is this in the first place?!?

This is the most diverse and creative album Josh has produced so far. It's good to see how far he's come since he first began. His music is captivating. - Jerusha

This album is unique in it's differing musical styles.

16 The Script - The Script

The Script is the 2nd best script album. Top 5:
1. The Script and...
2. The Script
3. Why are you here
4. Superhero
5. Your my only one (40 tracks! ) - lizard302

17 The Blueprint - Jay-Z

This album should be much higher, it is much, MUCH higher than the Marshall Matters LP, this album has excellent beats and it has a very diverse sound, its the best album of the 2000's in my opinion

How this so low. It is so much better than the overrated MaMathers Mathers. It is one of the best rap albums of all time and Jay-Z is the second best rapper behind Biggie, Eminem is just plain overrated

You think jayz was better than slim? Looks like the world just turned upside down

18 Stadium Arcadium - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Seriously?!?! Dani California, Snow (Hey Oh), Tell Me Baby, Storm in a Teacup, Charlie, Warlocks, the list could go on?!?!
