A Decade In Music: The Albums

Even though there's a good risk you're probably all sick of lists by now, we're about to hit you with some more as Langer and I have compiled our thoughts on the best releases the noughties had to offer. We're going to deliver this in 3 parts (hopefully with a significantly better posting frequency than we usually manage!) with today's covering our pick of the albums, mixes & compilations.

Our selections are based on personal tastes and wherever possible reflect the releases we both feel warrant a mention (we each had a few wildcards too for when we couldn't agree on an in/exclusion). The selections are largely based on things we still think sound great today rather than ones which we loved at the time but haven't aged so well - there are still a few that remain for nostalgic reasons though.

We've gone for an A-Z list rather than a top to bottom ranking as it would probably have taken us another 10 years to agree an exact running order otherwise! We're sure there'll be some great releases we've forgotten about or simply not heard and would love to get reader's views on your favourite releases of the last decade too so drop us your thoughts in the comments section.

Anyhow, on with the first installment:

Top 50 Albums Of The Decade:

Top 20 Mixes / Compilations Of The Decade:

Labels: , , , ,

Got just about all my fav albums & comps on your list but how about Stuart Price's Fabric mix? I still play it regularly now!! Minor gripe though!!
Not actually heard that one - just checked the tracklist now though & it looks like it has some interesting selections on it - good tracks from the sounds of the day interspersed with choices across a variety of genres to keep things nice & varied
Wow... awesome list! So many outstanding albums on there, as well as a few I need to check out.

A few that I would put on my best of the decade that I didn't see on there: Basement Jaxx - Kish Kash, The Field - From Here We Go Sublime, and Booka Shade - Movements. Also, the Mongolian Jetset remix compilation is one of the coolest things I've ever heard, not sure which list it would fall under tho.
