JM’s Best Album of the Noughties

Picking the Jordan-Maynard Organisation’s favourite album of the decade has not been easy. After attempting a vote which was longer and more complicated than the Afghan elections, I have decided that it would be easier if everyone just picked a few of their own personal favourites. Hopefully everyone will do so over the next few weeks.

So here is the longlist, in no particular order:

The Lark Descending (Chris Wood)
Rough Music (Eliza Carthy)
Bellow (Spiers & Boden)
Vagabond (Spiers & Boden)
Krulle Bol (This is the Kit)
White Chalk (PJ Harvey)
Back to Black (Amy Winehouse)
Graduation (Kanye West)
Mind Body Soul (Joss Stone)
The Seldom Seen Kid (Elbow)
19 (Adele)
Hope (Foy Vance)
Begin to Hope (Regina Spektor)
KC Rules OK (King Creosote)
Black Water (Kris Drever)
Bari (Ojos de Brujo)
A Tale of Two Cities (Mr Hudson & the Library)
Tired of Hanging Around (The Zutons)
Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not ( The Arctic Monkeys)
Arc Light (Lau)
Night Falls Over Kortedala (Jens Lekman)
Eye to the Telescope (KT Tunstall)
Farrar (Duncan Chisholm)
Keep Your Silver Shined (Devon Sproule)
The Bairns (Rachael Unthank & The Winterset)
Sunny Side Up (Paolo Nutini)
Franz Ferdinand (Franz Ferdinand)
O (Damien Rice)

It should also be noted that Flook’ ‘Flatfish’ narrowly missed out on a place as it was released in 1999.


I think this probably makes the entire thing pointless, although it could be partly because Tom and I have become more interested in music over the past decade.
