Decade In Rock 2000-2009

In conjunction with this years "Year In Rock 2009" and "Decade In Rock 1990-1999", I have compiiled a list for this decade entitled "Decade In Rock 2000-2009". A list of what I consider to be the Top 50 albums of this decade. In the spirit of the "Year In Rock" I chose only one song from the album that was my favorite. There are numerous artists who released multiple albums throughout this decade, and although many of the albums they released would be a noble choice for this list, I elected to limit this list to the best album a particular artist released in the decade. So, there are 50 songs, from 50 albums, from 50 artists (if that makes any sense). This list has gone through countless revisions (as most of mine do) but I feel confident in saying this was the music that defined the 2000's for me.

This decade saw the death of the Compact Disc and the rise of the mp3. The death of the discman, and the rise of the iPod. It will be interesting to see what will have changed in ten years from now in music. As I said in my last post, I believe the idea and concept of the "album" will be a lost art, and new and interesting ways of distributing music will be the way we all listen to music.

If you would like your own copy of this music, contact me. I have numerous ways of getting it to you.

(Tip: listen to all of these songs with headphones, it changes EVERYTHING!)
