Default NME top 50 albums of the 00s

Are you ready to be depressed!? Here we have it, TEN YEARS of music summed up, just in time for Christmas!
Main article

I'm not sure this toilet paper rag even commands the circulation to dictate what the yoofs listen to or admire any more, but this is a pretty appalling list all the same. There is so much lacking I don't even know where to begin, just pray to god nobody takes this seriously.

NME editor Krissi Murison said: "This is the definitive word on the greatest albums of the noughties – as voted for by everyone who helped make music brilliant this decade."

1. The Strokes - Is This It
2. The Libertines - Up the Bracket
3. Primal Scream - xtrmntr
4. Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
5. Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Fever to Tell
6. PJ Harvey - Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea
7. Arcade Fire - Funera
8. Interpol - Turn On the Bright Lights
9. The Streets - Original Pirate Material
10. Radiohead - In Rainbows
11. At The Drive In - Relationship of Command
12. LCD Soundsystem - The Sound of Silver
13. The Shins - Wincing the Night Away
14. Radiohead - Kid A
15. Queens Of The Stone Age - Songs for the Deaf
16. The Streets - A Grand Don't Come for Free
17. Sufjan Stevens - Illinoise
18. The White Stripes - Elephant
19. The White Stripes - White Blood Cells
20. Blur - Think Tank
21. The Coral - The Coral
22. Jay-Z - The Blueprint
23. Klaxons - Myths of the Near Future
24. The Libertines - The Libertines
25. Rapture - Echoes
26. Dizzee Rascal - Boy in Da Corner
27. Amy Winehouse - Back to Black
28. Johnny Cash - Man Comes Around
29. Super Furry Animals - Rings Around the World
30. Elbow - Asleep In the Back
31. Bright Eyes - I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning
32. Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Show Your Bones
33. Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
34. Grandaddy - The Sophtware Slump
35. Babyshambles - Down in Albion
36. Spirtualized - Let It Come Down
37. The Knife - Silent Shout
38. Bloc Party - Silent Alarm
39. Crystal Castles - Crystal Castles
40. Ryan Adams - Gold
41. Wild Beasts - Two Dancers
42. Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend
43. Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
44. Outkast - Loveboxxx/The Love Below

46. Delgados - The Great Eastern
47. Brendan Benson - Lapalco
48. Walkmen - Bows and Arrows
49. Muse - Absolution
50. MIA - Arular

Definitely not MY list but there are some good ones still. Along with that there is plenty of over-hyped meh.

What is this ****? I was hoping it was a joke until I actually clicked the link. They put the ****ing Klaxons on the list? That was one of the worst albums I had the misfortune of hearing this decade. Looking through I see a few albums that I feel should be on any top 50 list, and the rest don't deserve to be on anyone's list. This is complete crap. Good thing I was done with NME before I started with it, this could crush the soul right out of its readers.

it's just uninspiring, i feel like i've read this list fifty times before. it's classic Guardian supplement, parent-friendly, high street casual bullshit.
Of all the albums released in the last ten years, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Arcade Fire get two each... that's just wrong. And i repeat.. f*cking THINK TANK??!!!
Walkmen?? Who the hell are they employing over there? This is supposed to be the New Music Express, a platform for youth culture that had a big hand in kicking off punk in this country... I'm sure it's always been crap, but they at least had a few good writers at one point... nowadays they seem to have no qualms about being the mouthpiece for advertisers and labels, they flaunt it in fact

You're right, it totally is uninspired and tame. Like most lists I come across. So I tend not to pay any attention to any of them or get too upset by them. But then again I know nothing about NME so I don't have any expectations.

indeed... wiki NME and you will get the idea... and you're right it's not worth getting upset about, you accept the fact that it's the tabloid of music magazines, but i thought the utter bankruptcy of this list from a prevalent weekly publication with international circulation deserved the props. And there is a fine tradition of NME-bashing on this forum anyway =D

there are definitely a few good albums in there, but this was concocted by some very savvy journos catering to their market: impressionable teenagers (christ knows there are plenty of people in their 20s that even read it)... but like i said i don't know how much influence they have anymore, they've been superceded by the free flow of info/music/criticism on the internet.
