Came across this, a couple of years old.
I found this list falls into 3 groups.
- Never heard of them! ( a substantial chunk)
- Aware of them but don’t own any! ( another substantial chunk)
- Those I own! I must be getting old, I only own 1 of them. Number 71.
Who fairs better than I do, and are there any I really should own??
I have 12 , but hardly any of these I would regard as essential.
Is that anthemic rap with a silent C?
I’ve got two, Fleet Foxes and Amy Winehouse Back to Black.
I’ve got 3. Blimey. I must be stuck in the last century
I have three, but several copies of the no. 1 album.
I have 8 - I must be hipper than most of you lot
I have three from the list, but a lot of other 21st century material, just not on this list
i have the Radiohead’s ones.
(and, )excluding Amy winehouse, that is “mea culpa”, i wouldnt pick any.
ps.:(ok, Bowie’s the second i would consider)
I’ve got ten of them, so there’s hope yet … though I agree with @morrissey , above, that I don’t consider any of them as being essential.
I own Bon Iver, David Bowie and Joanna Newsome. I stream a little Amy Winehouse, but I’m clearly an old fart. I’m surprised Taylor Swift’s last few offerings don’t make the list, they were a pleasant surprise when I was invited to listen to them and Evermore is very listenable.
Got 12 or 13ish.
But - no Ese And The Vooduu People?!
36 for me! I’m definitely down with the kids!
Not sure how anyone can even consider assessing and compiling a best of 21st century when only two decades have passed!
I wonder what a 100 best records (of whatever format) of the 2oth century would come up with, being the first century of recorded music, and covering such a huge array of musical interests.
27 for me, which I’m surprised at!
I’ve got 14.
Maybe one or two of those i would consider essential…
Snap. But my sentiment is not oh dear, rather not surprised!
just 1 for me . . . i confess to not having evolved much after the 80s. clearly getting old . . .
