Here it is, a list of my favourite 21 albums of the first ten years of the 21st century. There are 21 because I felt there are 21 albums worthy of making the list. The criteria is simply which albums have I listened to the most since the new millenium.
I also cross referenced my fading memories of yearly album lists I compiled when I worked in a record shop and lists made with friends after this. Here is a podcast released in Dec 2008 reviewing that year in music with my friends Jack Mountain and TheoGb. My Lastfm profile is here. The decade list seems to favour the first half with no albums from 2007 at all. The list is currently in chronological order and features only one act from the UK, one from Japan and two from Canada.
