2000 – 2009 Top 50 Albums

I meant to do this a long time ago, but hey, I’ve been busy. So, without wasting any more time, I give you the top 50 albums from 2000-2009. Now I put this list together over Christmas and after looking at it again, I am sure I can mix it up a bit, but I am confident in at least the first half of the list being 100% accurate.

Now there may have been other albums that should be in the top 50, but I put the restriction of only 1 album per band on this list. And if you want to listen to any of the top 25 on this list, just click on the names of the album.

Feel free to leave your favorites in the comment section.

Thanks and enjoy - JP

A friend of mine mentioned 2012 last night to me and it's the first I heard about it so I jumped on here out of curiosity. I think it's kind of sick and sounds like a bunch of skeptical jargon.
I choose to live every day like it is the last because let's be real, WHO THE HELL KNOWS what is going to happen or when it's your time to go on. The past is history, the future is a mystery and now is a gift, thats why it's called the present. It's not healthy to sit around and trip out about when you will die. Stop wasting your time you have now.
