MW2K – #11-#20

  1. Think Tank – Blur (2003)

  2. A change and only last album by Blur from this decade. Big departure with the sound and member since Graham Coxon left because of creative differences.
    Best tracks are Ambulance, Good Song and Me, White Noise

  3. How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb – U2 (2004)

  4. This was the start of the commercialization of U2. Look at the iPod ad they did for Vertigo. But you can’t help but not love that song.
    Best tracks are Vertigo, Sometimes You Can’t Make It On Your Own, City Of Blinding Lights and Fast Cars (bonus track in the UK import).

  5. ( ) – Sigur Ros (2002)

  6. One of the most unique and intriguing albums to come out in this decade. First heard Untitled #1 (aka Vaka) on XFM when Ottawa had it ages ago.
    It was bizarre and haunting at first but listening (never listen to it alone at night) to this album made me fell in love with this band.
    Best tracks are Vaka and the Pop Song.

  7. Simple Things – Zero 7 (2001)

  8. When I first heard this album, fell in love with the great chill out atmosphere of their music. Made you feel like flying to their music.
    Best tracks are Destiny, Distractions, In The Waiting Line and End Themes.


  9. Glory Hope Mountain – The Acorn (2007)

  10. This album got them into Canadian critics darling list and putting them on the indie spotlight for Canada. Part concept, this album shows what the Acorn can achieve with their music.
    Best tracks are Flood Pt 1 and 2, Glory, Oh Napoleon, Low Gravity, Antenna and Lullaby (Mountain)

  11. Absolution – Muse (2003)

  12. An epic British rock album and was my first time liking this album.
    Best tracks are Time Is Running Out, Sing for Absolution, Stockholm Syndrome, Hysteria and Blackout

  13. Viva La Vida – Coldplay (2008)

  14. That album made my year for the rest of 2008.
    Something about the song Viva La Vida I can not stop listening to.
    Best tracks are Life In Technicolor, Lost!, Viva La Vida and Violet Hill.

  15. Neon Bible – The Arcade Fire (2007)

  16. Follow up to the massive and critical acclaim Funeral. The band did it again with Neon Bible. A tight and bigger production in sound and lyrics.
    Best tracks are Black Mirror, Neon Bible, Intervention, Black Wave/Bad Vibrations and No Cars Go.

  17. Soft AirplaneChad Vangaalen (2008)

    Overall great album but be warn some tracks has dark overtones about death.
  18. Best tracks are Willow Tree, Bones of Man, Bare feet on wet griptape, Rabid Bits of Time and Frozen Energon.

  19. Digital Ash In A Digital Urn – Bright Eyes (2005)

  20. I think Conor was trying to be Radiohead in this album and it totally works.
    This is more of the electronic side of Bright Eye.
    Best tracks are Time Code, Gold Mine Gutted, Arc of Time, Take It Easy (Love Nothing) and Easy/Lucky/Free.
