    People seem prone to complain endlessly about how much new music sucks. There are some valid arguments, but I feel that there’s still good music out there. Maybe it’s not in as large supply as it once was, but it’s out there. In this journal, I’m counting down the 25 best albums released so far in the 21st century.

    25. Is This It - The Strokes (2001)

    On this debut album from The Stokes, the New York boys introduced us to their unique brand of jittery rock. This album helped to incite the so-called “garage rock” scene of the turn of the century(which never quite panned out). It may not be as good as some of the things put out by their red-and-white-clad contemporaries, but Is This It has some great songs on it. “Last Nite” is one of the most infectious songs of the 21st century, while “When It Started” and “Take It or Leave It” are also signature Strokes stuff.

    24. Parachutes - Coldplay (2000)
