Re: Dagsavisen (Norway): The 21 Best Albums of the 21st Century

Well, the only album I think should absolutely be on the list is Radiohead's "Kid A" (and "Agaetis Byrjun, if you consider it a 2000 release). But my main complaint is not that they left out my personal favourites, but many of their picks are very unimpressive. Somebody please tell me what's so great about the White Stripes, because I fail to see it. Same for Outkast (Stankonia is much better) or Coldplay. The Flaming Lips rule though.

I guess the Whites Stripes get acclaim for being accesible in a "Pop with an indie attitude" sort of way?

Re: Dagsavisen (Norway): The 21 Best Albums of the 21st Century

White Blood Cells is a great album that is stuffed with anthemic, incisive, and emotional songs. And it has some of the most visceral sonics of the decade despite the basic blues palette. Listen to that first feedback squeal into Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground and you are hooked in anticipation of the coming explosion. They did it simple, and they did it right.

First list to not have any of the big three. Wouldn't be surprised if it's the only one too. I guess these 21 are better than Funeral, Kid A, Is This It, and YHF :(.

This is an old thread from 2006. The list is already on AM.

Glad to see Antony get some props.

Looks like The Blueprint is going to bump YHF back down.

So, since this list is from 2006 - some century! - I presume I don't need to worry about adding it to the spreadsheet?

I don't think anything before autumn 2009 should be added.

Because it's from 2006. It doesn't cover the entire decade. The spreadsheet will only include lists that do. Doesn't that seem fair to you?
