I took the premise of the thread to mean general classics. If we try and say what is going to be a cult classic we'll just end up saying a lot of OUR favorite albums instead of albums that will be more universally loved.

Meh. To me that just turns into a boring conversation about which albums from this decade are still going to be best sellers in 20 years.

Pretty high standards, wouldn't you say?

For me, I see it differently, the list I have, those albums in my opinion are very much classics from the 2000's. I think a lot of artists out there from this decade have a lot of talent and there are is a certain number of them that I honestly can say that I am truly in awe of.

Madlib- beat konducta in India
Madvillain - Madvillainy
Radiohead - Hail to the thief

And the back to back brilliant album Modest Mouse eventually release maybe.

Maybe not so modern but I think the following will stand the test of time:

Living Colour-Vivid

Soundgarden-Badmotorfinger, Superunknown

Tool-Aenima, Lateralus

Radiohead-Ok Computer, Kid A

The Mars Volta- De-loused in The Comatorium

Peter Gabriel-Up (2002)

Three(3)-Wake Pig, The End Is Begun (These guys are friends of mine, buy the album!!!)

...There are many more I'm sure I'm forgetting but it's a good start.

Nothing else sounds like MuM's debut album, except perhaps some moments in their succeeding records. Though their sound has been watered down to sound slightly less impressive over the years, their debut still sounds incredibly original, disorienting, and thus classic.

Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
I've said it before and I can't believe that amount of disagreement! This is Wilco's defining moment, combining eccentric production with brooding Americana. This is a deep record whose meaning and purpose will fly over some people's heads, but don't let it fly over yours.

Sufjan Stevens - Come on Feel The Illinoise
I have a feeling this is going to be, if not his last, then Sufjan Steven's most impressive state dedication. It mixes religion with state philosophy and the human spirit. All the songs are memorable, even the interludes, and its so effortlessly seamless it can be nothing but a modern classic.

Radiohead - Kid A
What's there to say about Radiohead's Kid A that hasn't before? Their most engrossing effort may not be their most ambitious but it's still a solid effort.

Dizzee Rascal - Boy in Da Corner
Will be remembered by underground rap enthusiasts for breaking the trend that rap has been setting for the past few years. It's not money, crystal and hoes for Dizzee Rascal.
The Arcade Fire - Funeral
Although Neon Bible is often considered their better effort, Funeral was the album that got the Arcade Fire where they are today. Its the most personal of the two albums they have out so far and thus their most relatable.

These are the albums I know will make it to most critic's decade end lists.
What? Nearly all the songs on the album have those cliches.

I skimmed through my library and picked out what I believe will be classics. Some of my choices, though, are based on a general view of music as well, not just my own preference. I didn't include Allmusic links for all of them because, well, you most likely have heard of the album or have read their review already. Enjoy!

** = Recommended especially for listeners under the influence..

Kings of Leon - Aha Shake Heartbreak
(2005)

Audioslave - Audioslave (2002)

If any God were too sing, Chris Cornell's voice would bellow from deep within.

Calexico - Carried to Dust (2008)
Allmusic - Last.fm

John Mayer - Continuum (2006)
Last.fm
With 'Continuum', John brought the blues mainstream into the Top 40. Not saying it wasn't already mainstream, but compared to what else was/is on the radio...people probably forgot what the blues were. What I like to call 'blues-pop'.

Deltron 3030 - Deltron 3030 (2000)

** Common - Electric Circus (2002)

My favorite psychedelic/hip-hop album ever. Wait, what..?

The White Stripes - Elephant (2003)

I just love the mood that exudes from this. Very calming yet, depressing. Such a great combo.

50 Cent - Get Rich or Die Tryin' (2003)

Awesome debut from and ok artist.

Spoon - Girls Can Tell (2001)
Allmusic - Last.fm
The best from their catalog. I have been known to think I am a complete badass while listening to this album.

Kanye West - Graduation (2007)
Last.fm
Packed with the hottest beats I've heard from this over-confident son-of-a-bitch.

The Killers - Hot Fuss (2004)
Last.fm

Andrew W.K. - I Get Wet (2001)
Allmusic - Last.fm
Did you know that he's a motivational speaker at colleges and such now? But the question is, which Andrew W.K. is it?

** Radiohead - In Rainbows (2008)
Last.fm
I do consider this one of their best albums, although that's not my reasoning for placing this on here. Remember the whole, pay your own price deal? They might not have been the first to do it but, come on...Radiohead did it. One of the most popular bands on the planet. They somewhat advanced the evolution of the music industry with that move.

The Strokes - Is This It? (2001)

The Darkness is already in Bargain bins over here. God they were awful. I think we can safely say that they wont reach classic status. Especially not over here anyhow.
