Normal Best of 2003 (official lists thread)

This is the OFFICIAL thread for the best releases of 2003. The only stipulation is that albums picked have to have been released (in the U.S.) this calendar year. Imports from last year and subsequently saw a US release this year count as well. So no Coldplay picks, ok?

Post your top 10 here. Point systems will be 10 for 1st, 9 for 2nd, etc etc. After the end of the year, we'll tabulate the winner(s). Dec. 31st is the deadline.

Any questions before we start?

1. outkast- speakerboxxx/the love below
2. jay-z- the black album
3. white stripes- elephant
4. pearl jam- new york, ny 7/8/03
5. warren zevon- the wind
6. joe strummer & the mescaleros- streetcore
7. the neptunes- the neptunes present: clones
8. 50 cent- get rich or die tryin
i'd like to add audioslave and johnny cash in there as well, but even though they were big albums in '03, they were technicaly released in november of '02... so i'm gonna pass on #s 9 and 10, unless you're willing to let me include these two... at which case i'd need to redo my list to work 'em in. if ya really want me to think of 2 more albums released in '03 i will, but i must say... i completely understand the grammys when doing this list... crappy year for music IMO

I also agree. I think the only studio album (excluding compilations) I bought that was released in 2003 was Emmylou Harris with Stumble Into Grace. And the July 11th Mansfield concert of Pearl Jam is brilliant too (love the acoustic pre-set!).

C ya!

3. Elvis Costello "North"
2. Daniel Lanois "Shine"
1. Madonna "American Life"
