After Dai’s and Craig’s sterling efforts with the all time greatest albums, and then 80s/90s albums, it falls to me to bring this triumvirate to a triumphant and exhausted close. So, the challenge now, is to name your top ten albums released since 1 January 2000. Personally in thinking about this I found it harder than either of the previous two – not because there isn’t enough good stuff there. Quite the contrary. So many riches to pick from, but few of them as hard wired into my consciousness as ‘all time favourites’. So I think this is going to be a very diverse list which should remind us all of some fantastic records we may have forgotten about.
Dai’s Rules still apply:
1) Post 10 albums ONLY
2) Place them in order 1 to 10. Number 1 will be allocated 10 points down to 1 pt in 10th place.
3) If you post more than 10 only the first 10 will be counted.
4) If you don’t post a preference in the 10 then each will be allocated 5 pts
5) Post exactly like this :
Number – Album – Artist
e.g. 1 – Dare – The Human League
Use proper names not The Fabs or HJHM etc
If you don’t your choice may not be counted.
I’ll give til midnight on 13 July.
Go to it.
