    Best Album of 2001

    Usual drill regarding picking Other in the poll. Doves won the 2000 Poll. 2001 was not a great year for music it has to be said

    White Stripes - Hotel Yorba - White Blood Cells



    Leonard Cohen - I'm Your Man - Ten New Songs



    Bob Dylan - Lonesome Day Blues - Love and Theft

    Absolutely love that David Kitt album still. That and Heartbreaker from last year are two of the best singer-songwriter albums you'll hear.

    Also on the missing list:
    The 'what do they have to do to be included' band that is Mercury Rev - All Is Dream (and don't say "make a good album"! )
    Eels - Souljacker
    Daft Punk - Discovery (very close second)
    Basement Jaxx - Rooty

    But my vote is for Other: Royksopp - Melody AM.
    This one has got better with age, and in fact I'm away to dig it out again now.

    Strokes will probably p*** this one mind you.

    Had to go have a think about this one.

    Some really good dance and hip hop from 2001.

    D12 is a great album, still play it alot. Basement Jaxx and Royksopp also very good. Busta Rhymes, NERD and Wu Tang Clan all had some very good albums too but my vote goes to Stillmatic by Nas.

    He pretty much hauled his career out of the ditch with that one.

    It also has the best diss song since Hit 'em Up in Ether.

    I've gone for Other - Muse 'Origin of Symmetry', before they went stellar, and it's just a genius album. Silver to System of A Down 'Toxicity' and bronze to White Stripes. Royksopp is a lost classic, i must download that one again...

    Others in the mix...
    Spiritualized - Let It Come Down
    The Beta Band - Hot Shots II
    New Order - Get Ready
    The Charlatans - Wonderland

    Oh balls, just realised I should've gone other with Ian Brown - Music of the Spheres...

    Does that guy still get heckled by people shouting for 'Summer of 69'? ;-)

    I've hit bedrock. I can't think of a solitary remarkable record released in 2001.

    Daft Punk Discovery - big omission IMO and my selection.
    That question was less stupid, though you asked it in a profoundly stupid way.

    Help me, Arthur Murphy, you're my only hope!
