Best Album of the Decade?

With only 3 short years left to the 2000's, less than a third of the decade left, it's not long now until we can look back at the decade as a whole and evalute its ups and downs much like we do with the 90's, 80's, and every decade before them. So, with 70% of the decade here and gone, do any of you think we've already seen the best album of the decade? That one album that when you think of the 2000's you're going to say, oh man, that was the decade that gave us The Darkness and Permission to Land (kidding, I hope to God no one would ever say something like that and then drool.

But you get the idea. Have we seen the best album of the decade yet. And if so, what was it?

I don't know if we've already seen the very best the 2000's has to offer, but so far, this has been my #1.



Sea Change - Beck

This album moves me to no end. Beck's own "Blood on the Tracks" and the true definition of a modern masterpiece and an instand classic.

Nope, not yet.

James Blunt is high up on my list of favourites though.

Best I've heard yet is Funeral by Arcade Fire. Yoshimi by the Flaming Lips is close.

I do believe this album moves you to no end, but it's not a masterpiece
perhaps the most boring album Beck ever released - yes
Permission to Land on the other hand is one of the most fun albums I've had the pleasure to listen to


I'd have to check my collection to see what was released in the noughties
but I fear it might actually be All that you can't leave behind that would get my vote

Not sure if the very best has come along yet, but those that certainly do stick out as being good markers for the times to me are:

Green Day - American Idiot
Coldplay - A rush of blood to the head
Muse - Black Holes and Revelations or Absolution (I'm undecided which one here)
The White Stripes - Elephant

I have much love for Beck, and that is possibly the best album of the 00's.

HOWEVER, there are many albums that compete for top prize.

Radiohead - Kid A
Spoon - Girls Can Tell
Coldplay - Parachutes
Green Day - American Idiot
U2 - HTDAAB
The Shins - Oh, Inverted World
Arcade Fire - Funeral
My Morning Jacket - Z
Flaming Lips - At War With The Mystics
White Stripes - Elephant
The Go! Team - Thunder, Lightning, Strike

Obscure Album - Obscure Band

You may never heard of them but I assure they are so good you don't need to.

It makes me sad that James Blunt and the Darkness are both listed in this thread so far. Let's correct that:











I have a hard time choosing just one. There are several more, I just don't feel like hunting down their pictures.

My vote would go to All That You Can't Leave Behind, with Kid A as a close second.

I'd also list Kid A, ATYCLB, and Funeral at the very top for the decade.
