Greetings, pop-pickers!

It's that time of year again. I am now looking for your nominations in The Spaced Out Ultimate Albums of the Noughties Poll!

As per the Nineties albums poll, I politely request your top twenty studio albums, released during the years 2000-2009.

To aid your selection process, here are a number of links to albums released throughout the Noughties (please note, these may be far from complete):

2000 - 2001 - 2002 - 2003 - 2004 - 2005 - 2006 - 2007 - 2008 - 2009

Closing date for nomination entries is at present 7th February. I might yet extend this to allow for last minute entries, or indeed if there aren't sufficient entries to justify posting the end results. My target is as close to twenty sets of votes as possible - although more would be terrific.

If you have any questions in the meantime, feel free to post your comments below.


Many thanks!!

This will be difficult. I looked at some top albums of the 00s lists yesterday and I hadn't heard most of the albums and quite a few of the bands. Damn young people and their noisy rackets.

Ooh, this'll be interesting. This was the decade where I really started listening to music, so whittling it down is going to take some effort (and a lot of listening to good music).

Looking through the polls & lists I'm surprised how poor the 00's were compared to the previous 3 decades.

Lil Chris to win of course.

Funny, I was thinking the exact same thing. Nevertheless, I think the outcome of this poll will prove an interesting and wildly varied one.

Should I limit the number of albums by one artist?

It would probably be best.

I can only think of one, maybe two albums, I would predict as appearing in the Top 5, and I doubt they'll make my 20

I'm toying with the idea of including all of Nick Cave's output for the decade.


Ade can we make suggestions in thread of great albums people may forget to include?

Not at all. A piss poor nostalgia infested excuse of a decade. This current generation is a boring tragedy.

There have been some brilliant albums, but they have certainly been a little more spaced apart than I remember in the 90s.

My top ten is nearly formed already.

I thought at first I was going to find compiling my favourites for this decade extremely difficult, but on reflection there are a definite 10-20 that are already standing out leagues ahead of anything else I've purchased in the past ten years.

I think that quite a lot of music released since 2000 has been quite 'throwaway' compared with the overall quality of the 90s, thus making the choices far easier than I'd initially anticipated. I'm looking forward to rediscovering my CD collection again.

I'm finding that some "oldies" are making my top 20 with no difficulty whatsoever - Morrissey, Johnny Cash, Nick Cave, Nancy Sinatra domination may be on te cards.

I might have spoken in haste. I've got a Top 50 already.

This will be by no means a hasty decision, but already the cogs are whirring. I've got a pretty good idea of my absolute number one, but I'm going through a few old favourites, and trying a few ones I missed out on. I think with the Noughties, there were still just as many great albums as decades previous, but they were mostly smaller and less well-known efforts, with few that could be safely considered both critical and commercial successes.

Here's Pitchfork's staff list anyhoo
