Top 10 albums of the decade

A brief break from the talk of dodgy interviewees for a moment for an 'everyone's doing it and, well, so am I actually' end of decade chart. I came up with this list for a website I write for ( pop pickers) and only The Strokes made it through to the final top 21 (see here for that) so here is my two penneth for the best albums from 2000-2009:


   1. Chemical BrothersWe Are The Night
   2. Klaxons Myths Of The Near Future
   3. Royksopp Melody AM
   4. Justice Cross
   5. Tim Story & Hans Joachim RoedeliusLunz
   6. Saint GermainTourist
   7. Badly Drawn BoyThe Hour Of Bewilderbeast
   8. Black Devil Disco ClubIn Dub
   9. Boards Of CanadaGeogaddi
  10. The StrokesIs This It?

The problem with things like this is you always remember other albums after you've sent the list off. I would add to this, Daedelus' 'Love To Make Music To' which would come in at around number six, meaning The Strokes wouldn't even have made it! It's a funny old game.

Useless music fact #10:
The best selling single of the decade was 'Anything Is Possible'/'Evergreen' by Will Young and the best selling album of the decade was James 'yes my name is cockney rhyming slang' Blunt's 'Back To Bedlam'. Thus proving once again that the record buying public do tend to like a load of old cock.
