Slant Magazine: Best Albums of the 2000s

http://www.slantmagazine.com/music/feature/best-of-the-aughts-albums/215

There are two #82s listed- but, I imagine the first is supposed to read 83.

Missy Elliott had the most singles of anyone on the singles list (5)- who will have the most albums? (obviously, one act will not have as many as 5 albums on the list)

100. Aimee Mann, Bachelor No. 2
99. Sinéad O'Connor, Faith & Courage
98. Clipse, Lord Willin'
97. Bat for Lashes, Two Suns
96. Gorillaz, Gorillaz
95. The Knife, Silent Shout
94. Goldfrapp, Felt Mountain
93. Hot Chip, The Warning
92. Gnarls Barkley, St. Elsewhere
91. The Shins, Chutes Too Narrow
90. Erykah Badu, Worldwide Underground
89. Radiohead, In Rainbows
88. M. Ward, Transfiguration of Vincent
87. Missy Elliott, This Is Not a Test!
86. The National, Alligator
85. Songs: Ohia, Magnola Electric Co
84. Ryan Adams, Heartbreaker
82. Joanna Newsom, The Milk-Eyed Mender
82. Damien Rice, O.
81. Kristin Hersh, Learn to Sing Like a Star

JR
Missy Elliott had the most singles of anyone on the singles list (5)- who will have the most albums?


The caption under the photo of Radiohead on the first page says: "Radiohead is tied with Missy Elliott and Erykah Badu for the artist with the most albums on our list."

Re: Slant Magazine: Best Albums of the 2000s

That surprises me... Missy and Erykah I understand, but who are those Radiohead guys?

On a more serious note, that probably means three albums a piece, considering that In Rainbows is already out. I'd bet on the other two being Amnesiac and Kid A, with Kid A being the de facto favorite.

Well There It Is...

Thanks, Harold- I had skimmed that intro. If I had skimmed more properly, I would have caught it.

Slant highlights a nice mix of music.

100-61...

We now have two Radiohead albums; Kid A likely is on the way. And we have one each from Missy E. and Erykah Badu, so two more from them to come.

61. Yo La Tengo, And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out

Re: 100-61...

Sound of Silver is way too low (especially since it's below Merriweather Post Overrated), but Two Suns and Aaliyah making the list makes up for it.

Re: 100-61...

Hey! There's room at the top for both Sound of Silver and Merriweather Post Pavillion. They are both too low. Regardless, I like the way the list is shaping up.

Re: 100-61...

I'm liking this list so far. There is so many great albums i love. I guess what surprises more is not exactly the picks, but the positions. Two Suns, Worldwide Underground, Milk-Eyed Mender, Bachelor No. 2, Aaliyah some great underrated picks. I guess Amnesiac won't be picked. There are two Radiohead album already, and if there's a tie between Erykah (she only released 3 albums last decade) then there's only one pick (Kid A) left. Miranda's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jill Scott were also great picks. Now i expect to see Ys (they rated a 5), Extraordinary Machine (they named their second favorite of 2005), Robyn's Robyn (top 5 of 2008), White Chalk (another solid 5 they adore) & maybe Fox Confessor Brings The Flood. As far as i see, they are not giving a shit to ratings since some albums received mixed reviews and they made the list. So the albums i list are only expectations, and i hope some of them fulfill! =]

Moon...

I suspected you wouldn't agree with the ranking of LCD.

I'm thinking that if it comes down to one Madonna album, it will be Confessions on a Dance floor over Music (though two Music tracks featured on the singles list). Which I'm sure you would agree with.

100-41...

OK- we now have the three albums from Missy E. and Erykah Badu. Anyone want to take a shot at predicting the top 40? :)

Re: 100-41...

any picks for the last 40??

Hmmm...

I'm not all too familiar with Slant's year-end lists through the 2000s. It mentions these in its intro, that we probably will see:

White Stripes
Madonna
M.I.A.
Outkast
TV On the Radio
plus, Radiohead (one more to come)

Other acts who could make an appearance, among others:
The Strokes
Wilco
Arctic Monkeys
Amy Winehouse
Flaming Lips
Daft Punk
Eminem

Re: Hmmm...

Both Music and Confessions... made the list- very nice.

No Doubt's album is a surprise. Moonb- there's your Annie and Robyn both faring well.

Re: Hmmm...

Anniemal's high position just made this list for me!

Re: Hmmm...

Moonbeam
Anniemal's high position just made this list for me!


I totally agree! It looks like this website it's not afraid to reward great pop music. No Doubt, Madonna, Robyn & Annie inside the top 40, i'm yet to see something like that. Now i have no idea of who's inside the top 20.

Yes...

Slant has a nice, eclectic mix of genres represented in is list.

I knew you'd like Annie's placement, Moon. :)

What other straight-up pop could appear in the top 20?

Figure that Eminem has to have an album in there. Maybe another White Stripes? And The Strokes have yet to appear.

Re: Yes...

There's only one Eminem album Slant liked: The Eminem Show. They completely disliked the others, including The Marshall Mathers LP (they rated 1.5 out of 5). I guess there might be a White Stripes or Strokes album. Funeral is yet to appear. Arular, Ys, White Chalk or even Stories From The City by PJ Harvey might make an appearance. Kid A position is also a mystery. Slant loved Fiona's Extraordinary Machine, but i don't know if it was enough to rank it inside their top 20.

How About Outkast?

Could that be in the top 20?

Speaking of pop- what other pop nuggets could make it? I thought maybe Kylie Minogue's Fever, but the original review was 2 1/2 stars (opinions could change over time, though). Are the ratings a conscensus, or given by the critc reviewing the album?

Outkast's Aquemani had a 4 1/2 stars rating.

Re: How About Outkast?

Björk's Vespertine being in the top 20 would be a great way to cap off the list. Kylie's Fever or Body Language would be nice. I'm sure we'll see plenty fo the usual suspects (Arcade Fire, Strokes, Radiohead, M.I.A.)

The Full Top 100...

This may be the best decade list yet- and not just because Madge features twice.

Moonb, you again should be quite pleased, this time with Bjork's placement.

Re: The Full Top 100...

I'm so blind! I really thought i have seen Bjork's Vespertine already on the list. Slant loves Bjork, a Slant list is not a Slant list without her, and i'm glad that she made it inside the top 3.

YAY for Fiona Apple inside the top 20! So underrated. I know it's the Brion version, but whatever i love both of them and this might help to keep the album inside the top 3000 next update!

I knew it! Slant had mixed feelings about Stories at first, but like Pitchfork, they changed their mind. I actually thought that White Chalk would be inside the list, but after that album didn't appear inside the top 40, i knew that they would pick Stories instead.

No Neko's Fox Confessor, but that's okay.

And after i saw The Milk-Eyed Mender i knew, deep in my heart, that the chances of seeing Ys inside the list were killed! But i still had hopes, and after at all it didn't happen. The album was keep out. The Milk-Eyed Mender is actually showing some staying power in the EOD, outperforming Ys, or even being picked instead in some lists, that was something i wasn't expecting, but since i LOVE both albums, i'm happy.

Like JR said, this might be the best list yet. It has a lot of great artists, and mix of genres. There's even a very underrated Sinead O'Connor album! This list rocks! One of my favorites yet!

I Like It...

because while there are some mainstream-act albums (that happen to be quite good), there also are some non-mainstream acts, who still are recognizable to me. A number of the other lists, that are very indie-oriented, I have no clue who most of the acts are (but, they also serve a purpose, as it provides an outlet to discover music, if one so desires).

Pretty Low...

showing for Back in Black. I was wondering where that splendid album was on the list.

Eminem landing two albums in the 101-250 range isn't bad, considering Slant hasn't been big on him.

Thanks for posting the addendum.

NOTE: In explaining its posting a top 100, Slant explained that, "the lower down on the list you got, the less consensus there was on a particular title; in fact, outside the Top 150 singles, there were only a handful of songs that were voted for by more than one contributor."

Presumably, I should add #101-250 to the spreadsheet.

Re: Slant Magazine: Best Albums of the 2000s

It would be great to see Ys & Fox Confessor win some points inside the spreadsheet! =]

Wait, Alligator made the list and even Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers, but not Boxer? I call sham.
