No idea what the last three albums will be.

Re: EOD Albums Treble (US) '00s

I am fairly confident Boxer will be among them.

Re: EOD Albums Treble (US) '00s

Yeah Boxer is probably a good guess. Also since the list is so incredibly indie something like The Glow might make it. Or maybe Endless Summer.

Re: EOD Albums Treble (US) '00s

Chutes Too Narrow has already been listed by the way. I think the remaining three might be the big hiphop albums; The Marshall Mathers LP, The Blueprint and The College Dropout. Surely they didn't leave those 3 out of the entire top 150.

I was thinking the exact same thing. At the very least, The College Dropout is undoubtedly in there considering that we've seen Late Registration already. And I agree that Boxer is probably a good bet as well.

Other possibilities:
At the Drive-In, Relationship of Command
Sigur Ros, Agaetis Byrjun
QotSA, Songs for the Deaf

Re: EOD Albums Treble (US) '00s

The College Dropout is probably a good call, especially considering the importance of rap tokenism in the indie world. That, Boxer, and my list is 19 leaving room for one more. At the Drive-In and Songs for the Death might be a bit heavy for the folks at Treble (who like cry and listen to The Smiths) but both are possibilities. Sigur Ros is another possibility but I think they were on the 90s album list.

No, it's 18 leaving room for two more - Chutes Too Narrow has appeared already, as Stephan noted earlier. In all likelihood, those two are the other rap albums you mentioned (Blueprint and Marshall Mathers), unless SB/TLB managed to outrank Stankonia.

Re: EOD Albums Treble (US) '00s

They make it pretty clear that Stankonia is their favorite OutKast album; they actually say it is. Yeah I made a mistake with Chutes Too Narrow, I still don't see The Blueprint in their T20, while I guess Marshall Mathers LP could fit the bill. From what I can tell the highest they've ever ranked a rap album was The Low End Theory at 3rd for 1991.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Re: EOD Albums Treble (US) '00s

So, no Marshal Mathers and no College Dropout, but Madvillainy and LCD Soundsystem. And Boxer, yay.

I'd say that result is fabulous.

Re: EOD Albums Treble (US) '00s

Yeah I'm very pleased with the results, this is by far my favorite EOD list so far. It looks like the results of a poll AMF would run.
