OT: Top 10 (favorite) albums of the decade

Since it's the All-Star Break, with four straight days of no Giants games, it's time for the off-topic equivalent of rosterbation. Namely, what do you think are the 10 (or 5, or 3) best albums of the decade? Or, to put it another way, which albums from 2000-2009 are your favorites?

My list is top-heavy on the first half of the Oughts, partially because it's hard to attach "classic" status to albums that are only a couple years old, and partially because I'm an Old Fart who is no longer up on the current hip bands. (You kids get off my lawn, and take your TV On the Radios and Dirty Projectors with you. Just kidding...I like the former and just haven't heard the latter.) This is in no particular order, although Boards of Canada, Radiohead and the New Pornographers are probably my Top 3:

Beulah, The Coast is Never Clear (2001)
Radiohead, Kid A (2000)
Wilco, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (2002)
Boards of Canada, Geoggadi (2002)
New Pornographers, Twin Cinema (2005)
Sufjan Stevens, Illinois (2005)
Arcade Fire, Neon Bible (2007)
Jurassic 5, Power in Numbers (2002)
The Delgados, Hate (2002)
Low, Things We Lost in the Fire (2001)

 

Have at it, Giants fans and music lovers.
