JK's Best Albums of the 2000s

I started putting this list together back in August, shared it with NF, put it aside for awhile, and finally put the finishing touches on it today...I think. Albums that came out this year are tough to consider because they've haven't quite set in yet. Then again, I'm listening to so much more music now than I did 9 years ago, it's hard to say how much I will come back to albums released this year.

Update: I had to make a couple corrections based on more reflection.

Here are my favorites:

50. Drive-By Truckers - Southern Rock Opera (2001) Ryan Adams - Gold (2001)

Nice list. I would have set Tool's Lateralus in a better place and also, I think you missed Sigur Rós' ( ) album... There's also a song on the viagra online spots by The Corrs which name I don't really know, but that album is also very good.
