Best albums I purchased in 2001

A little bit late, but here’s the list of the best albums I purchased in 2001. Not in any particular order, mind you, and again, this list is open to albums released in years other than 2001. Just like my list of the best ten books I read in 2001.


  1. The Pernice Brothers: The World Won’t End
  2. Mark Kozelek: What’s Next to the Moon
  3. Ryan Adams: Heartbreaker (and yes, not the more recent Gold. which I think is kind of stinky and over-produced.)
  4. Sparklehorse: it’s a wonderful life
  5. Femi Kuti: Fight to Win
  6. White Stripes: White Blood Cells
  7. Elvis Costello w/ Burt Bacharach: Painted from Memory
  8. Archer Prewitt: Gerroa Songs
  9. Björk: Vespertine
  10. Neko Case & Her Boyfriends: Furnace Room Lullaby
  11. The Olivia Tremor Control: Music from the unrealized film script Dusk at Cubist Castle
  12. The Strokes: Is This It

How about you? Please, share even a couple of the albums you bought last year that you liked, if only to give me another reason to spend some more money. As if I needed a reason.
