Top 10 Best Albums of the 2000s

The Top Ten

1 Kid A - Radiohead Kid A - Radiohead Product Image

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.

One of the most emotional albums of all time, especially in motion picture soundtrack.

2 American Idiot - Green Day American Idiot - Green Day Product Image

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.

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!

One of the most infamous comebacks in music history was Green Day putting this album out. It deserves number 1.

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

3 In Rainbows - Radiohead In Rainbows - Radiohead Product Image

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

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

Absolutly Good stuff from radiohead great album!

4 Meteora - Linkin Park Meteora - Linkin Park Product Image

Oh please this is the best album of 21st century how come its not on no. 1 spot.
This is the best album ever made equivalent to Hybrid Theory of its own Paranoid of Black Sabbath Master of Puppets of Metallica Back in Black by Ac/Dc.
So it is automatically no. 1. Period.

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

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

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

5 The Marshall Mathers LP - Eminem The Marshall Mathers LP - Eminem Product Image

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.

Eminem is one of my favourite rappers for sure but I think that kid A is better

What the albums changed rap forever should be higher

6 Funeral - Arcade Fire Funeral - Arcade Fire Product Image

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 Hybrid Theory - Linkin Park Product Image

Hahaaha so many kids are out here voting for pop music.
See this is the best piece of music that could ever made even Linkin Park can't create such masterpiece again.

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.

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

8 Is This It - The Strokes Is This It - The Strokes Product Image

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 Stankonia - Outkast Product Image

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

10 Harem - Sarah Brightman Harem - Sarah Brightman Product Image

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

The Contenders

11 Hopes and Fears - Keane Hopes and Fears - Keane Product Image

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.

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

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

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

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

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

16 Speakerboxxx / the Love Below - Outkast Speakerboxxx / the Love Below - Outkast Product Image
17 The Script - The Script The Script - The Script Product Image

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! )

18 Fallen - Evanescence Fallen - Evanescence Product Image

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

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

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. awesome album and I just can't get enough of it.

I think MICHAEL JACKSONs invincible album should be at number 3 at least I liked his invicible album much and I enjoy drinking coke for example when I listen to some of my big time favorite albums. You can call me lame for all I care.

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 A Rush of Blood to the Head - Coldplay Product Image

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 In the Zone - Britney Spears In the Zone - Britney Spears Product Image

One of the best pop albums ever!

The best album!

25 Elephant - White Stripes Elephant - White Stripes Product Image

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?
