Ok, so i've done my TOP 5 albums of 2010...but now comes the REAL list!
Here's my TOP 10 of the 2000's (in no particular order - that task was just too tough for me to do a job I could live with).
These are the albums I was in love with and playing constantly in college, post-college, and yesterday. They remain mainstays in my rotations, and have influenced me a TON! I'm sure if you listen close enough, you'll hear nods and references to these in my own albums and recordings.
Please feel free to share your top albums as well - I'm eager to see what has influenced you!
