i'll second 1997, but i thought 2002 was lacking really. i can't think of any one major release that i still listen to today that came out in 2002. the only one that is popping in my head is busted stuff by the dave matthews band, but i haven't heard that album in 6 years and it's not exactly something i love either. i don't really remember now what i bought in 2002. that's sad really.


*edit* after doing a search of albums released in 2002 i only found two albums that i really dug that year. weezer's maldroit and tracy chapman's let it rain. i still have the weezer album, but i don't have the tracy chapman album.

I heard you were holding back because your record company wouldn't spring for BluRay.

You people know me entirely too well. It's sweet.

Also of 2002:

Blackalicious - Blazing Arrow
Pretty Girls Make Graves - Good Health
Talib Kweli - Quality
DJ/Rupture - Minesweeper Suite
RJD2 - Deadringer
McLusky - McLusky Do Dallas
The Streets - Original Pirate Material
The Notwist - Neon Golden
Flaming Lips - Yoshimi
Trail of Dead - Source Tags & Codes
Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
Queens of the Stone Age - Songs for the Deaf
Bright Eyes - Lifted
Doves - The Last Broadcast

There are a lot of other albums from that year that I've loved at one point or another, but I STILL listen to EVERY one of those albums on a fairly regular basis. That's saying something.

Plus, yeah, Broken Social Scene.

Amen, brother, plus some words from the chorus:

Blackalicious - Blazing Arrow This was on my top 10 list that year, but I haven't listened to it in a while...thanks for the reminder.
The Notwist - Neon Golden Yup
Flaming Lips - Yoshimi
Trail of Dead - Source Tags & Codes Oh shit, I forgot about this. I carried this around so much in my truck and at work that it eventually got futzed up. Will the RIAA call me a thief if I download it for free now?
Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
Queens of the Stone Age - Songs for the Deaf Yup.
