Best Albums Of The 00s

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.

Best is 2000's... Who are these people they really don't know about a good album...
Most creative album of the decade

2 American Idiot - Green Day

Green Day had taken a major risk when taking this album and it worked so well!

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

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!

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.

3 In Rainbows - Radiohead

I could never get into Kid A. But this album is phenomenal. Absolutely Perfect.

Absolutly Good stuff from radiohead great album!

Best album of Radiohead and Radiohead is the best band in the world so...

House of Cards, Nude, Weird Fishes...this album has some amazing songs

4 Meteora - Linkin Park

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

Remove the 0 in its position
It deserves thst

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

Best album of all time? More like best joke of all time. They are more overrated than meek mill and iggy azalea man

5 The Marshall Mathers LP - Eminem

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

bEST RAP ALBUM AND BEST ALBUM.

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

What the albums changed rap forever should be higher

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.

This is THE best albums of the 00s. How come its only at 20?

7 Hybrid Theory - Linkin Park

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

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

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

I admit I'm not a big Nu Metal fan, but you can't deny this album is amazing. Definitely deserves to be higher than #9.

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

Nor only their finest album, but one of THE finest albums recorded.

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 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.

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

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

The Contenders

11 Harem - Sarah Brightman

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

12 Madvillainy - Madvillain
13 Hot Fuss - The Killers
14 Jupiter's Darling - Heart

This CD is as good as any HEART ever recored. J.D. ranks right up there with Little Queen and Dreamboat Annie. If you don't have it ,buy it and give it a spin. Recored in 2004, it ranks in the top 3 of all of HEARTs records.

Things,Prefect Goodbye, Lost Angel are three of the best songs HEART has ever recorded but of course they made the radio station play list.To busy playing that RAP junk.

15 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! )

16 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.

Best all round album

17 Speakerboxxx / the Love Below - Outkast
18 Fallen - Evanescence

The best album of the decade. All songs are classics: Bring me to life, My immortal, Going under, Everybody's fool...

Hands down the greatest

19 Illinois - Sufjan Stevens
20 Minutes to Midnight - Linkin Park
21 Merriweather Post Pavilion - Animal Collective
22 Invincible - Michael Jackson

This album is beautiful. Michael sang the songs with such depth and emotion. His reality of life in his songs is amazing. Speechless is on this album and that song alone makes me speechless. Awsome album and I just can't get enough of it.

One of his worst albums in terms of sales, and yet it still managed to take the number one place during its release. If Michael Jackson at his worst is better than any artist at his/her best then this surely beats all! You Rock My World

Michael had his heart and sole in this album. Hi s music was wonderful and I love it so much...

Probably the most underrated album of all time... Some of the songs are awesome and a lot different from your typical Michael Jackson stuff.

23 A Rush of Blood to the Head - Coldplay

At the time, Coldplay was very popular in Europe, and was slowly becoming famous worldwide. I'm from Europe so I'm surprised that the album isn't like 10 or something. And it's probably Coldplay's best album.

This song should be much higher.

Really this website is so biased towards USA no oasis or AROBTTH is ridiculous

24 Elephant - White Stripes

This album restored my faith in modern music. It captures just how deceptive the White Stripes are with their music. I first heard this and had no idea that they were using primitive recording techniques and only drums, vocals, and guitar. Because of that, this elevates it's status in my opinion to being a modern classic with a consistent flow and incredibly catchy heavy songs.

Oh come on how is this so low?

25 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.

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

26 Toxicity - System of a Down

A breakthrough album for metal, love this band and love their passion for music

27 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

28 Sound of Silver - LCD Soundsystem

LCD Soundsystem creates an addictive blend of punk, electronica and dance on this emotional LP.

29 Death Magnetic - Metallica

The lesser of all evils. and I don't even like it. That says something about this list

Love this album it is so good, every song is a masterpiece.

30 Black Holes and Revelations - Muse

A beautiful invitation to the brighter darkness shades of a historical vision.

Amazing album one of muses best.

31 The Resistance - Muse
32 The E.N.D. - Black Eyed Peas

Better without Fergie, like their actual old stuff and newer

It is starnge how this is not higher... 16 Brilliant Tracks!

33 Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends - Coldplay

My favorite song is in this album. It actually hurts me to see this at number 58. This is one one of the best albums ever!

This, Parachutes, AROBTTH, X&Y, Kid A, In Rainbows should be much higher.

34 Back to Black - Amy Winehouse

Amy changed music with this brilliant masterpiece. "Back to Black" is phenomenal album. Amy's voice was really unique. I love every single track on this album
R.I.P. darling. We Miss YOU!

Amy Winehouse was talented. No one can argue about that. Without her would Adele have become as popular? Probably not she paved the way for non-pop artists on the radio for the 2010s.

Just phenomenal album-masterpiece that changed our music. Amy did a wonderful job here. Her vocal is impressive. Her lyrics is touching.
'Back to Black' is melodious mix of Soul, Jazz, Pop and R^^B.

35 The College Dropout - Kanye West
36 Appeal to Reason - Rise Against
37 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?!?!

American idiot is for American idiots. Rhcp beats Green Day

38 Covers Vol. 1 - Regine Velasquez

garnered a PLATINUM award in LESS THAN A WEEK! now that's amazing, isn't it?

39 Up! - Shania Twain

I wish Shania released more albums like this. Simply fantastic country-pop album!

40 Discovery - Daft Punk

How is this album so far down!? I mean, The Colour and the Shape isn't even 00's!

41 The Black Parade - My Chemical Romance

This album is perfection, a true rock opera. There have been many great albums by many great groups this century (Coldplay, Eminem, Green Day, Avenged Sevenfold, The Fray, The Script - the list goes on! ), but this is by far my favorite. Beautiful lyrics, beautiful melodies, and a haunting quality that you simply cannot forget. I love the Black Parade. We'll carry on.

Listen to this album and you'll see it deserves a spot in the top 10

Definitely top ten material.

This album is perfection. It deserves to be number 1?

42 Feels - Animal Collective
43 Affirmation - Savage Garden

This is the best album from Savage Garden ever

44 The Emancipation of Mimi - Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey's The Emancipation of Mimi wasn't only the best album of 2005, it was also one of the bests, if not the best, of the 2000's decade. It set and broke several records, and was the best-selling album of 2005 with over 10 million copies sold worldwide. It produced six singles which all experienced success on different charts globally. It produced two chart-toppers, We Belong Together and Don't Forget About Us. We Belong Together topped the chart for 14 weeks, the longest stay at number one in the past decade, and the second longest stay at number one ever, only behind Mariah's very own One Sweet Day, a collaborative effort with Boyz II Men, which topped the song for an undisputed record of 16 weeks. In between WBT's reign, TEOM's third single peaked at number two, making Mariah the first and only female artist to occupy the top two positions on the Hot 100. The other chart-topper from the album, Don'r Forget About Us, became Mariah's 17'th number one, the most for any female. ...more

It's a great R&B album!

The lyrics are inventive, the music is nice and the vocals are at their best!

45 Awake - Skillet

THIS SHOULD BE number 1!

BEST ROCK BAND IN HISTORY!

46 One X - Three Days Grace
47 J.Lo - Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer has many haters and I don't get why. She's a very hard-working woman, very smart. Just because she has a very nice body and she shows it, does not mean we must hate on her!

Awesome album! Urban J. Lo is the best! Don't mind her haters. This album deserves the highest appreciation!

48 De-Loused In the Comatorium - The Mars Volta
49 Dear Agony - Breaking Benjamin
