In one of several end-of-the-decade mega polls underway at Coldplaying, we're asking you to choose between 20 and 100 of your favourite albums of the noughties in Coldplaying's Album Of The Decade poll.
It's been an action-packed ten years for the music industry and it's your opportunity to pinpoint your standout albums since 2000. For example, NME's top 50 albums of the decade list was topped by the Strokes album 'Is This It'. Meanwhile, Spinner honoured Amy Winehouse’s soulful 'Back To Black' as the top Album of the Decade. If you're a reader of the Observer Music Monthly you'll already know that their countdown was topped by The Streets - Original Pirate Material as the album that defined the noughties.
Compiling any top list is a tricky process. But how do you filter through the myriad musical delights of the past ten years to pick the defining sounds of the decade? When you think you've done it, please submit your ranked choices at the World Of Music forum. Please make a note of the rules before posting your lists...
