41. Aaliyah – Aaliyah (2001)
It was a shock in 2001 when Aaliyah was tragically killed in an airplane crash. Her music and legacy will still live on.
This album is full of pop, R&B/Soul and probably is one of her best and personal album.
Best tracks are We Need A Resolution, Rock Da Boat and More Than A Woman.
42. Elephant – The White Stripes (2003)
This is the only the White Stripes album that I own. It was probably a start of their popularity thanks to the song Seven Nation Army.
A great garage rocking album.
Best tracks are Seven Nation Army and The Hardest Button To Button
43. Close To Paradise – Patrick Watson (2006)
Patrick was the second artist to win the Polaris Prize. It is a creative artsy dreamy album.
Its like what the title of the album suggests. Light, mellow and dreamy.
Best tracks are Close To Paradise, Daydreamer, The Storm and Luscious Life.
44. Andorra – Caribou (2007)
The third artist to win the Polaris Prize. This album is a mix of psychedelic electronica.
Has that 60s feel and just makes you want to dance your butt off.

The only soundtrack I would recommend from this decade.
