    It's been a great decade for music, and never before has music been more easily accessible than now in the iPod and digital age. Let's see your favorites!

    Well, my list of favorite albums is definitely.... different, but I thought I would post it anyway. These are from my list of top 40 albums of all time.

    1. Vanessa Carlton-Be Not Nobody: In my opinion, this album is the biggest sonic masterpiece to ever grace "Radio Disney pop". Even at the measly 64kbps that I have it on, I still get the chills with most of these tracks. Truly my favorite album of all time.
    3. Evanescence-Fallen: Another all-time favorite of mine, and one of my first experiences in the world of metal. Amy Lee's ghost-like voice can be both scary ("Tourniquet") and beautiful ("My Immortal").
    5. Avril Lavigne-Let Go/Under My Skin/The Best Darn Thing: Avril got me into music, so all three of her albums are very close to me.
    6. Nine Inch Nails-Year Zero: This is one of those albums that, while definitely having a stellar collection of songs, really makes waves with it's "presentation". The ARG concept was nothing short of groundbreaking.
    12. POD-Satellite: The greatest rap album of all time, hands-down.
    16. Kelly Clarkson-Breakaway: We all know it now, but this album was the start of Kelly's "dark" phase. While some didn't like it, I personally thought it was a wonderfully eerie experience.
    17. Machinae Supremacy-Overworld: You guys have probably never heard of this SID metal band, but you should look them up. They have a bunch of free demos on their website.
    18. Sepiamusic-Prototype: Another indie album that I love.
    22. Soulja Boy-Souljaboytellem.com: I'll probably be flamed for this, but I personally liked Soulja Boy's "I'm an idiot lololol" style of rapping.

    Ah, I just noticed you have White Ladder by David Gray. I liked that one a lot too.

    To be pedantic, White Ladder is actually a '90's album. ;)

    Ok, here's my top 10 albums of the decade. I've deliberately only chosen mainstream artists as music-douchebags annoy me as much as anyone else! You'll find it's mostly British, as there are very few tracks I've liked to come out of the States this century (I blame it on over-production).

    1. The Libertines - Up The Bracket

    [​IMG]

    2. The Streets - Original Pirate Material

    3. Muse - Origin of Symmetry

    4. Dan Le Sac Vs. Scroobius Pip - Angles

    5. Florence and the Machine - Lungs

    6. Modest Mouse - Good News For People Who Like Bad News

    I'll have to fix the year in iTunes!

    The Libertines and Modest Mouse were close on my list! That Arctic Monkeys and Libertines album are on my brother's list, in fact.

    The Open Door EP artwork reminds me of this, but I am a Radiohead fan, after all:
