Default Best Albums of the 00s (so far)

This is spontaneous, only partly thought through, and hardly innovative, but here goes:

Is This It – The Strokes
Elephant – The White Stripes
Naked - The Beatles (best band of the 60s, hardly listened to as Spector ruined it, stripped of the syrup – now hard to take off)
Arcade Fire - Funeral

Mostly highly derivative, but with imagination, variety &/ or punch.

Alternatives or debate welcome . .

Error - substitution!
Ooops I forgot:
Franz Ferdinand
And the all time heavy.weights Led Zeppelin’s How The West Was Won.

And the Strokes – I dunno – I was playing it today and eg that song Someday sounded like somthin out of a Drew Barrymore movie. I was listening & thinking where’s the magic, where’s the meaning? Are my new English audiophile speakers too BBC for these rockin Noo Yorkers? No, they’re faithful to the music.
We all know the magic of analogue, but what if it’s only on CD?

So I finally completed my (world first) digital to LP system, which burns LPs from CDs. The reslt – still no magic ~ as a last resort I then (a la Revolution 9) played it bachwars. Eureka, the hidden meaning of the song is revealed!

While Drew is driving to her mom’s to show her, her new wedding dress, the vial is caught in the rear wheel of the convertiable, and Drew is in a horrific car smash.
Fabrizio Moretti rushes to the hosiral, heraing she’s terribly disfigured, her blonde hair falling out in ptaches and turning frizzy and red from the heat of the engine on her lap, crushing the poodle too. When he arrives he says it dosen’t matter,m it was her stoic inteletualism that he always admired, ands they wed and consumnatte on the spot.

So if you finds your CDs aren’t doin for you like the reviews say they should, simply send me 99.99 and I’ll return ship my all noo Digital to LP system, & for an extra 9.99 you get the reverse motor mechanism, and all your collection will have entiurely new maenings.
Amaze Your Friends! Be One Up on other Audio Dudes – Snobs and Fools Alike! Don’t Delay! No More to Pay!

Anyways, if you don’t buy it, I’d delete the album off your top 5 list. Back to the Bonx guys. Nice cover art though, peachy.

I love the Naked album, too. But it's hardly music of the '00s. Recycling, as it were.

My favorite recycled album of the '00s is The Pizza Tapes.

Probably not recorded new. Jerry's voice is a bit quiet since his death in '95. David Grisman and Tony Rice are still around and kicking some serious butt.
