Best Music Of The 00's

I didn’t buy magazine since +/- 5 years. Some years ago, it helped me to have some news from the music insdustry. I still continue to buy records but it is often old records (Stevie Wonder, Pink Floyd,Depeche mode…).
Here you come! Tell me please witch records you think are great.
I don’t speak about this great record everybody say it’s good but nobody like to listen to. I speak about the record you would take with you if you where alone on an island. And it should be from the last 5 years

Give the usual info, artist, album and why not a review or a link to

These albums have had great significance for me during the Naughties.

Venetian Snares - My Downfall (2007)
Vex’D - Degenerate (2005)
She - Coloris (2008)

Of these three, I’d deffinately take ‘My Downfall’ with me to my island (WHEN WILL I LEAVE?! CAN’T WAIT!!) because despite all hope, love and friendship, you live in a demented place with idiots like Aaron Funk. :D Some people say it’s an overrated album and Rossz Csillag Stoepslet is better, but those people should listen more to Elgar and Bach.

A few of my tip top favorites:

Mason Jennings “Boneclouds”

The Flaming Lips “Embryonic” (this one’s pretty new but I have to have some Lips in here)

Venetian Snares “Detrimentalist” (duh)

Ingrid Michaelson “Be OK” (so what, wanna fight about it?)

can’t remember the album but it gets alot of praise on the dubstep forum. I heard it from start to finish it’s great. it’s not technically dubstep but it is amazing! just wish I could remember the artist lol! began with B, but not Benga


My favorites:

The Books - The Lemon of Pink
Caribou - Up In Flames
Magnetic Fields - I

Aleksi perala …project 5
Astrobotnia …part 123 ( also alesksi perala )
Frogpocket …come on primates show your teeth
Stereolab…emperors tomato ketchup
Analord …1…10

The new Yello album is just perfectly produced and gives you just that “cool” mood.
… It’s just… PERFECT…

Google for Touch Yello

Most influential to me as a way of looking at music (not necessarily the way I create music, etc):

Analord series of AFX. Songs to make you cry, all of them.

DAT Politics - Wow Twist. I love listening to this album. Crazy woop woop sounds, I dig. Don’t ask. :P

Squarepusher with Hello Everything and Numbers Lucent. Beautiful stuff, I don’t know what to say more.

Gangpol Und Mit - The Hopelessly Sad Story Of The Hideous End Of The World. A bit like going to an electronic circus. :blink:

Otto von Schirach - Oozing Bass Spasms. If you are looking for radical, I’d even say evil, drums and basses + the sound of sex (fapfapfapfap)…this is your thing.

Jega - Variance. Listen and enjoy.

The Flashbulb - Flexing Habitual.

The Tuss - Rushup Edge. Another RDJ pseudonym.

These were the albums that crossed my mind first…

Lol Vivace, Rossz Csillag Stoepslet. From now on I’ll always use this, there’s no possible way a human could pronounce such an album’s title. :P

I will give my best records ever list:

(random order)

At the drive -in -Relationship of command

Mars Volta - De loused in the comatorium

Cornelius - Fantasma

Mu-ziq - Bilious Paths

Bright eyes - Lifted or The Story Is in the Soil

Tim Exile - pro agonist

Ben Folds - Rocking the suburbs

Oceansize - Effloresce

Joe jackson - Body and Soul

With these records I could survive on a lonely island! :)

Modest Mouse - Building Nothing Out of Something / The Moon and Antartica

Venetian Snares - My Downfall / Huge Chrome…

Plaid - Double Figure / Spokes

Grandaddy - The Sophtware Slump

Opeth - Blackwater Park

Ulver - Shadows of the Sun


and many more… I think I tend to prefer melancholic atmosphere in general.

yeahthat’s it

There is only one for me: ‘Mokira - Album’
It’s from 2003 but I don’t care, it still amazes me today.

How could I forget;
Bogdan Raczynski - Alright!
Felix Kubin - Matki Wandalki

I hope my girlfriend didn’t buy my Christmas gift yet! :P

Amazingly I think my favorite album from the last years is a DJ mix! I know it sucks but I really like it :
Balance from Joris Voorn. I will take this with me to my island.

When I come to, It always suggest me to buy this record…

Damn ofcourse, Global Goon!

Global Goon - Family Glue
Amazingly fresh album. B)

Aleksi Virta - …Meets Torsti At The Space Lounge


probs ye

oh, damn… i wonder where have that album.

Venetian Snares My Downfall and Roz has been my mp3 player for 3 years… considering I only have space for about 10 albums at a time says is all…

Alva Noto’s Transform, Transrapid, Transpray, Transvision and Unitxt is also something I return to. A 00:ties statement of the development of laptop minimal glitch…

Ofcourse …that last track is ubergeil :dribble:
