Well here are some of my favorites of the 2000's...

U2 - How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb
U2 -All That You Can't Leave Behind
Bruce Springsteen - The Rising
Bruce Springsteen - Magic
Eno & Byrne - Everything That Happens Will Happen Today
Coldplay - Viva La Vida
Tom Petty - Highway Companion
Radiohead - In Rainbows
The Fireman - Electric Arguments
Paul McCartney - Chaos And Creation In The Backyard

I haven't heard NLOTH yet, and I know some people will think these are horrible picks. How do you define "greatest" though? I've always found it hard to rank albums according to which is the "greatest". Personally, HTDAAB is one of my favorite albums of all time, but I'd have a hard time calling it the "greatest" U2 album because in order to be considered the "greatest" album, doesn't it have to widespread praise and general acceptance as a "great" album. I don't know...

Radiohead - Kid A
Keane - Hopes And Fears

Oasis - Dig Out Your Soul
Tori Amos - Scarlet's Walk

Y'all forgot Arcade Fire in those lists!

I'm a big fan of having "favorite" or "perfect" albums, but only if they can coexist with my other "best albums." Is NLOTH, created in the 00s, timeless and one of my favorites? Oh yeah!
