Yes, yes, these are always entirely subjective, and there's always an element of "Why isn't X there?!", but I'm a sucker for these sorts of things. All in all it's a fairly decent list I reckon; I think 2 of my choices for that title have made it into the top 10 (LCD's Sound of Silver and Frank Ocean' Blonde). There are lots of artists who I think should be represented, but then I realise that their best albums were all pre-2000. Time is funny like that. There's also lots of albums on there that I'd almost forgotten how good they are until reminded of them in this context (the no.1 choice being a perfect example - overplayed everywhere at the time, but with distance and fresh ears, good God it sounds incredible).
It would have been nice to see BoC represented (Geogaddi most likely), if only because of how quietly influential they've been to the music culture and aesthetics of the last 10 years or so (how many of us have teenage relatives who post selfies with washed out/Polaroid filters online?) - Hip hop and R&B have definitely borrowed a lot of their sort of sound I think; although maybe it's a case of inspiration coming from the same sort of sources...
