The Top 20 Albums of the Decade. (2000 – 2009)

I have been discussing this with some friends and I figured I would post this here.  My list is very limited as I just haven’t listened to as much music this decade as in the past.  I got married in 2000 and that and my growing family has reduced the time I can spend on new music.  But, I do have a list that I am pretty happy with.  Here it is:

20.  The Decemberists – The Crane Wife (2006)
19.  Howie Day – Stop All the World Now (2004)
18.  Plankeye – Strange Exchange (2001)
17.  Hammock – Raising Your Voice Trying to Stop an Echo (2006)
16.  Patti Griffin – Children Running Through (2007)
15.  Honey – Three (2003)
14.  Monarch – Lowly (2006)
13.  Peter Gabriel – Up (2002)
12.  Bloc Party – A Weekend in the City (2007)
11.  The Elms – The Great American Midrange (2009)
10.  Coldplay – A Rush of Blood To the Head (2002)
09.  The Listening – The Listening (2006)
08.  Explosions in the Sky – The Earth is not a Cold Dead Place (2003)
07.  Jimmy Eat World – Futures (2004)
06.  Need to Breathe – The Outsiders (2009)
05.  Coldplay – Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends (2008)
04.  The Elms – The Chess Hotel (2006)
03.  Arcade Fire – Neon Bible (2007)
02.  Sigur Ros – Takk (2005)
01.  Cush – Cush (New Sound) (2000)

I might add some info about each album if I have the time but for now the list will have to suffice.  Agree? Disagree?  Think I am crazy?  All of the above?  Let me know.
