With the decade coming to a close, we're quite busy at MTV News putting together our "best of the decade" lists. The first one we collectively tackled was Best Albums from 2000-2009. These lists are never easy - and are always fun - and of course spark interesting debates and amusing, often vicious mockery among the staff. It should come as no suprise that when it comes to pop culture, and music in particular, we've got a pretty opinionated bunch.
Without further adieu, here's my personal list for favorite albums of the decade.
10) The College Dropout - Kanye West (2004)
9) How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb - U2 (2004)
8) Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand (2004)
7) The Marshall Mathers LP - Eminem (2000)
6) Elephant - The White Stripes (2003)
5) Alligator - The National (2005)
4) Heartbreaker - Ryan Adams (2000)
3) Funeral - Arcade Fire (2004)
2) Oracular Spectacular - MGMT (2007)
1) All That You Can't Leave Behind - U2 (2000)
MTV News will reveal our definitive, collective, much-argued-over list closer to the end of the year/decade.
