Best albums of 2002 that I know of

Posted by on Friday, June 22, 2012

I feel lately like I'm going through this huge change in my life where I keep saying to myself, "things just aren't as great as they were in the good ol' days." These whippersnappers today listen to "noise" and have iPhone apps that wipe for them and wear saggy knickers.

Ergo, I'll create a best of music list from a decade ago. This list will amaze you for one of two reasons: that these albums still find airplay on your drive to work or you can't believe it's been ten years since you picked that one up and listened to it in your first car.

Against Me! - Reinventing Axl Rose
Ben Kweller - Sha Sha
Box Car Racer - s/t
Bright Eyes - Lifted, or The Story Is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground
Bright Eyes and Britt Daniel - Home Volume IV
Damien Rice - O
Desaparacidos - Read Music, Speak Spanish
Finch - What It Is to Burn
Red Hot Chili Peppers - By the Way
Interpol - Turn on the Bright Lights
Spoon - Kill the Moonlight
Taking Back Sunday - Tell All Your Friends
The Starting Line - Say It Like You Mean It
Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot

I have a feeling 2012 won't touch 2002. 


  1. a couple of my favorites from 2002

    Beck - Sea Change
    The Walkmen - Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me Is Gone

  2. Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots by The Flaming Lips

  3. ah man. this is so great. I now want to listen to all of these albums like its 2002
