I had this thought about what were the best albums of the century so far. And I'm not talking about great albums, but ones where every track is a masterpiece and collectively they all fit together somewhat. True genius in song and lyric writing.
I ended up with One-X by Three Days Grace.
Maybe it's because it has helped me with my depression, but I think every song has a strong meaning and it is almost sort of a concept album, that concept being Adam's recovery. Your thoughts?

EDIT: I would also make the argument for Avenged Sevenfold's self-titled album. Come at me

In Rainbows will hopefully be forever remembered not only because of the excellent musicianship and production of the Radiohead crew, but for also being that album that started the whole "give your shit away" thing.

Other than that, I haven't been staying very up to date with amazing albums. Haven't bought a "new" album in some time (new Black Keys is ****ing awesome though) and I've been more into the whole EDM thing.

God this is frustrating. I know that I know that SOMETHING awesome other than in rainbows came out in the last decade but dammit i'm drawing blanks here.

I'm also not just considering favorite albums. Trying to think of ones that made an impact, and should be recognized. Not just ones that I liked a lot.

I agree with The Powerless Rise. One of my favorite overall albums was Dying is your latest fashion by Escape the Fate. I was really into it when it came out and I still dig it. Collectively I think it's a fantastic album.
My sig? Nice.

Scar Symmetry - Holographic Universe
Alcest - Douvenirs D'un Autre Monde
Ghost Brigade - Isolation Songs
Devin Townsend - Ghost
Porcupine Tree - Deadwing
Times of Grace - The Hymn of a Broken Man

There's more, but I'm feeling lazy. I'll update this later if anything comes to mind.

I'm not a fan of Three Days Grace, but if that album got you through some tough times, more power to you. Hell, I'd say the same thing if you said that Justin Bieber helped you with your depression.

The Strokes - Is This It? Room on Fire
Muse - The Resistance
Foo Fighters - Wasting Light
REM - Accelerate

Throwing in my obviously biased opinion:

Simone Felice - Live from a Lonely Place
Sparklehorse - It's a Wonderful Life
Sparklehorse/Danger Mouse - Dark Night Of The Soul
Strange, It seems like a character mutation, Though I have all the means, of bringing you fuckers down, I can't make myself, To destroy upon command, Somehow forgiveness, lets the evil make a loss - Danger Mouse/Sparklehorse/Wayne Coyne

I'm not even a fan of Muse, but you chose The Resistance over OoS and Absolution? Really? Also, Wasting Light is from the wrong decade (and it's not the "best" anything, but I digest).

Diorama - Silverchair. Seriously underrated. Its reminiscent of (the Beach boys) Pet sounds greatness. If not, just Australia's version of it.

I was so into Muse for like two months one time. I bumped that shit on the regular. And with my expertise (listening to them for two months at age 15), I rank their albums: OoS>Showbiz>Absolution>TR>that other one whose name eludes me but has very subpar songwriting and arrangements. The Resistance is cool if you think U2 is cool, but that's a completely separate issue. ( to tha U2 fans.)

Even tough you and I didn't really know each other until this year, I remember when you had a Selena Gomez avatar and posted in the Muse thread. >.>

OT: I couldn't list them, or from any other decade.

This is one of the few answers in the thread that isn't just a list of favorite albums

Also an excellent response. That album shook the **** out of the pop music scene.

And HOLY SHIT By The Way came out in ****ing 2002?? Feels like ages ago I was in my dad's car heading to middle school listening to that CD with him.
