Albums of the Noughties Part Two



And in no particular order:


Eminem “The Marshall Mathers LP” - telling us what it is to be him.

The Gutter Twins “Saturnalia”

Evanescence “Fallen” - Amy Lee's blueprint to stardom, no wonder I like female fronted bands.

John McLaughlin, Jaco Pastorius, Tony Williams “Trio of Doom” - three of the greatest jazz musicians ever - and arguably the greatest jazz drummer of all time inTony Williams who started playing with Miles Davis when he was sixteen. Sadly, he and Jaco (killed by a bouncer's "push" outside a nightclub) are no longer with us.

Mark Lanegan Band "Bubblegum"- guest starring PJ Harvey on "Hit the City"

Peeping Tom “Peeping Tom”- probably the only thing ex-Faith No More (at that time) genius Mike Patton did in the noughties that was anywhere near "commercial".

System of a Down “Toxicity” - another blueprint to stardom, where are you now guys?

Incubus “Make Yourself” - you only have to listen to the likes of "Drive", the churning intro to "Clean" and the funky madness of "Battlestar Scralatchtica" to know that this is their best album.

Primal Scream “Xtrmntr” - check out track six "Bloodmoney" - essential.

Pat Metheny and Brad Mehldau  “Metheny Mehldau Quartet” - a joy from the first track onwards.
