The albums of my life: the 2000s

In the new millennium I heard past my provincial post-white tastes, helped muchly by fire sharing, illegal and otherwise. With the exception of 2000’s chart topper, every one of these I put atop my year end lists, including 2002, my first Pazz and Jop voting year, I think.

2000: Ghostface Killah – Supreme Clientele
2001: Bob Dylan – “Love and Theft”
2002: Kylie Minogue – Fever
2003: Dizzee Rascal – Boy in Da Corner
2004: Sonic Youth – Sonic Nurse
2005: The Hold Steady – Separation Sunday
2006: Various Artists: Journey to Paradise: The Larry Levan Story
2007: Robert Wyatt – Comicopera
2008: Erykah Badu – New Amerykah, Pt. 1: 4th World War
2009: Maxwell – BLACKsummers’night
