1 Björk Vespertine

Interesting (and nice, somehow) to see Bjork at #1

Re: Drowned in Sound Best of 2000-2005

Awesome to have Vespertine at number 1! It is definitely my favorite album of this decade!

Re: Drowned in Sound Best of 2000-2005

Thats really weird, I just discovered how amazing Vespertine was last night and I disregarded it for so long because I thought there better Bjork albums to spend my time on... Glad to see a DIS put it at #1, I think it may be my favorite Bjork album...

Re: Drowned in Sound Best of 2000-2005

Funny... I am a huge Bjork fan, and Vespertine has to be my least favorite of her studio albums. (Yes, including Selmasongs, and no, not including whatever that album was that she put out as a young kid before the Sugarcubes.)

Maybe I should give it a few more spins.

Re: Drowned in Sound Best of 2000-2005

Awesome to see ATDI 2nd !
Some very strange choices (Slipknot 3rd album ? o_O Even I who loved the 1st and does not totally dislike the 2nd hate it !)
Lots of strange omission, but cool to see some albums who even if they're not the most amazing ones, deserve some respect. I'm thinking about Saul Williams self-titled album for instance.

Re: Drowned in Sound Best of 2000-2005

Woo, I'm very impressed with that top 10. Most of them are unorthodox but accurate. Especially glad to see Lifted at #9!

Re: Drowned in Sound Best of 2000-2005

Thanks Dan M!

There are at least a couple of albums from 2006 on the list (The Knife, Guillemots), so it looks like it was "best of the 00s so far" rather than "2000-2005".
