Your Favorite Albums by Year: 2000-2009

Alright, this is probably the last of these for now, since I don't think too many of us will have answers for albums from the 50s or before. (Not that many jazz fans here, right?)

So, let's do this decade. Sure, it's not over yet, but come back in next year and edit it as you see fit.

Formatting for the lazy:
Spoiler:
HTML Code:
2000 : [b][/b] — [i][/i]
2001 : [b][/b] — [i][/i]
2002 : [b][/b] — [i][/i]

2004 : [b][/b] — [i][/i]
2005 : [b][/b] — [i][/i]
2006 : [b][/b] — [i][/i]
2007 : [b][/b] — [i][/i]
2008 : [b][/b] — [i][/i]
2009 : [b][/b] — [i][/i]

With smaller alternates:

2009 : [b][/b] — [i][/i] [size=x-small]([b][/b] — [i][/i])[/size]


2000 : Badly Drawn BoyThe Hour of Bewilderbeast
2001 : Manu ChaoProxima Estaciσn: Esperanza
2002 : ColdplayA Rush of Blood to the Head
2003 : Yeah Yeah YeahsFever to Tell
2004 : ElectrelaneThe Power Out
2005 : Clap Your Hands Say YeahClap Your Hands Say Yeah
2006 : Yeah Yeah YeahsShow Your Bones
2007 : Of MontrealHissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?
2008 : Girl TalkFeed the Animals
2009 : The Very BestWarm Heart of Africa

Spoiler:


2000 : (RadioheadKid A / ColdplayParachutes / Don ByronA Fine Line: Arias and Lieder / D'AngeloVoodoo / MC Paul BarmanIt's Very Stimulating / a-HaMinor Earth Major Sky / Yo La TengoAnd Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out)
2001 : (Matthew JayDraw / Ben FoldsRockin' the Suburbs)
2002 : (PatriceHow Do You Call It? / BeckSea Change)
2003 : (Danger MouseThe Grey Album / Ima RobotIma Robot)
2004 : (MadvillainMadvillainy)
2005 : (Maxοmo ParkA Certain Trigger / Amadou & MariamDimanche ΰ Bamako)
2006 : (PlaceboMeds)
2007 : (TinariwenAman Iman: Water is Life / RadioheadIn Rainbows)
2008 : (Amadou & MariamWelcome to Mali / Paul KalkbrennerBerlin Calling OST / The Killers Day & Age / Kings of LeonOnly by the Night)
2009 : (The xxxx)


What's strange is that 2006 seemed a hard year for me to pick something that stood out as great. Not that I don't like the YYY album but it just doesn't match some of the other albums on the list (including their debut).

Almost all of the albums I've mentioned I've listened to continuously since they came out, including the past few weeks.

Re: Αgζtis Byrjun:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%81g%C3%A6tis_byrjun

While released to little fanfare, the album quickly gained radio exposure in Iceland, and spent the autumn of 1999 climbing the Icelandic album charts...Αgζtis byrjun was released in the United Kingdom in 2000, and in the North American market in 2001 by Fat Cat Records.
It could count for any of the three years depending on where the poster is from and/or how they interpret the definition of "release year".
