My list was rushed, but I don't know how I forgot these:

50 Cent - Get Rich or Die Trying (undeniably huge in the U.S.)
Kanye West - The College Dropout/Late Registration/Graduation (an epic, if not slightly uneven trilogy, and he's one of the most important hip-hop artists/producers of our time)
The Killers - Hot Fuss
All great choices, and modern-day classics.

to the Black Album, and Like Water for Chocolate - the latter is probably a better choice for Common, yeah.

Looking at these albums - yeah I've grown up with these and thrashed them, but do they compare with works of the 80s and 90s? I think they do.

Not sure if I agree with that. Blueprint at least has the anchor of a big single in H.O.V.A., and I think Hard Knock Life would be remembered before The Black Album as well.

i think this decade, in my eyes will be known for:

- even worse crappy pop
- the death of modern rock
- the indie scene

some bands that come to mind that made a lot of noise for me:

Animal Collective
Arcade Fire

Quoted for the goddam mutha 'uckin truth.

I'd also like to add Nellyville, which I love.

But surely if there's one big act that'll be remembered here it'll be Coldplay?

Amy Winehouse - Back to Black, sold millions of copies and the critics loved it
The Libertines - In the UK they'll be remembered for spawning dozens of shitty indie bands

Besides that I pretty much agree with everything else that's been said
