Your top 10 albums that didn't make the '00s decade poll

Like Nicolas and a few others I'm a bit frustrated about the albums that were selected for the decade top 100 poll. To treat my frustration, I'm posting my list of the 10 most deserving albums that didn't make the cut. Most of you have probably seen these albums listed by me before, but anyway here goes...

1. Studio - West Coast
2. Thomas Newman - American Beauty
3. Junior Boys - So This Is Goodbye
4. Anouar Brahem - Le Voyage de Sahar
5. Bohren & der Club of Gore - Black Earth
6. Robert Plant & Alison Krauss - Raising Sand
7. Kings of Convenience - Quiet Is the New Loud
8. Goldfrapp - Felt Mountain
9. The Notwist - Neon Golden
10. Röyksopp - Melody A.M.

Your lists?

Re: Your top 10 albums that didn't make the '00s decade poll

1. Puppetmastaz - Creature Funk
2. Architecture in Helsinki - In Case We Die
3. At the Drive-In - Relationship of Command
4. Queens of the Stone Age - Rated R
5. Thrice - The Illusion of Safety
6. Hot Chip - The Warning
7. Animal Collective - Feels
8. The Rakes - Capture/Release
9. Millencolin - Pennybridge Pioneers
10. Dizzee Rascal - Boy in da Corner

To be honest, the one I was the most disappointed by is Hot Chip, I thought it would be shoe in and it ended 19th of 2006, you guys were out of your mind this time !

Re: Your top 10 albums that didn't make the '00s decade poll

Number of albums per year that made to final and were also in my yearly top 10.
2000 (6)
2001 (1)
2002 (1)
2003 (1)
2004 (1)
2005 (2)
2006 (3)
2007 (7)!
2008 (6)
2009 (4)

Four years (in a row) that only one album made to final.

1. Liars - Drum's Not Dead
2. Heather Woods Broderick - From the Ground
3. Jenny Wilson - Love & Youth
4. Gang Gang Dance - Saint Dymphna
5. Paavoharju - Yhä hämärää
6. Lambchop - Nixon
7. The Rapture - Echoes
8. Explosions in the Sky - Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place
9. Explosions in the Sky - All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone
10. TV on the Radio - Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes
(looks like my #1 of 2001, #2 of 2002 and lot of other all time top 100 albums didn't make to this list).

The most frustrating thing was when TV on the Radio debut didn't make to final because I somehow put the album to my #4 and not to #2 - the place it should have been (I like it so much more today than And the Lefthanded or Interpol albums although I listened those more in 2004).
Drum's Not Dead and Saint Dymphna were also close to qualify but in those cases I couldn't have supported them more (50 points from me).

Re: Your top 10 albums that didn't make the '00s decade poll

Not much consensus here, so no wonder these albums didn't make the top 100.

Re: Your top 10 albums that didn't make the '00s decade poll

I seem to be the only one who thinks that the freshest music of the decade was in the electronic field.

Re: Your top 10 albums that didn't make the '00s decade poll

My favorite each year that didn't make the cut, and how I ranked it that year:

2000: Deltron 3030 - Deltron 3030 (4)
2001: Fugazi - The Argument (3)
2002: Boards of Canada - Geogaddi (3)
2003: Broadcast - Haha Sound (2)
2004: The Fiery Furnaces - Blueberry Boat (2)
2005: The Books - Lost and Safe (4)
2006: Liars - Drum's Not Dead (1)
2007: Deerhunter - Cryptograms (3)
2008: Gang Gang Dance - Saint Dympha (4)
2009: Broadcast and the Focus Group - Investigate the Witch Cult Trials of the Radio Age (1)

Other favorites: Amon Tobin - Supermodified, Microphones - The Glow Pt. 2, McLusky - McLusky Do Dallas, Four Tet - Rounds, Ulrich Schnauss - A Strangely Isolated Place, Bark Psychosis - Codename: Dustsucker, Caribou - Andorra, Flying Lotus - Los Angeles, and Super Furry Animals - Dark Days/Light Years.

No, I agree.

Re: Your top 10 albums that didn't make the '00s decade poll

Antonius, I really like your list. Rhythm & Sound was just outside mine. A few ones I haven't heard that seem very interesting.

Re: Your top 10 albums that didn't make the '00s decade poll

A fair amount of the un-acclaimed music I've loved in 2011 has been electronic. I think it's just that in the 00s my discovery was more limited by critical success.

Dubstep is extremely popular among folks my age, and this trend is well understated because the sales are under-reported and there's no brute force marketing directing everybody's attention to individual groups.

Re: Your top 10 albums that didn't make the '00s decade poll

I can't think of a top 10 songs list off the top of my head right now (I might do another post about it tomorrow) but I do know what my #1 underrated song of the 00's is, and it often surprises me. It surprises me because it's hard rock (I love blues-rock and a lot of alternative rock, but conventional hard rock along the lines of Led Zeppelin, Metallica and Drive-By Truckers annoy the fuck out of me, no matter how much I try to like it). Yet I find this slice of glorious hard rock / pop-punk so appealing that it kinda freaks me out...

Andrew W.K.'s album "I Get Wet" is fantastic. If you like "Party Hard", I seriously implore you to listen to that album in its entirety, particularly the single "She Is Beautiful", which is probably my favorite song on the album.

Re: Your top 10 albums that didn't make the '00s decade poll

No albums really disappointed me by not making it. I especially wanted The Glow, Part Two, Boys and Girls in America, and Feels to qualify, but oh well.

A couple of songs from 2002 were a different story though. Obstacle 1 losing to Work It (I think in part because of Work It's almost inexplicably high ranking before the most recent update) by just a few points was ridiculous. Grindin' was also one of my favorite songs of the decade, and it didn't even come close to qualifying.

Re: Your top 10 albums that didn't make the '00s decade poll

I'll follow Petri's lead.

Number of albums/songs from my top 10 that made the collective list for each year:

2005: 3/2
2006: 1/0
2007: 2/2
2008: 0/1
2009: 4/2

My top 10 albums that haven't made the big list are:

1. Annie - Anniemal (2nd favorite of the 00s)
2. Kylie Minogue - Body Language (4)
3. Kylie Minogue - Fever (5)

5. Annie Lennox - Bare (7)
6. Janet Jackson - All for You (9)
7. Chromeo - Fancy Footwork (12)

I agree as well, although the electronic acts we put in our lists differ.
