The Best of the ’00s Review: #100-11

Yes, we’ve made it to the top. In all honesty, the end of the decade kind of snuck up on me. I didn’t even realize it until I started seeing articles like “team of the decade” or “the best gadgets of the ’00s”. It is a little strange to think I started the decade as a first year graduate student sleeping on a couch and finished as a assistant professor who knows a house. Go figure, eh? Anyway, this is not a post about me in review, but rather to finish off my favorite 100 albums of the decade. Lets review!
