Drowned In Sound's best albums of the 21st century - RESULTS

please play Whole Lotta Love on entering this thread

102 DiSsers have got together over the last week to vote on the best albums of this century*. We’ve had 1919 nominations, with 929 individual records named and 11 variations of Godspeed’s Skinny Fists.

311 of those records have received more than one nomination and today I’ll be taking you through the top 100 as decided by yourselves and my ridiculous spreadsheet.

Stay tuned throughout the day for the full list and more statistical nonsense than even @he_2 can stand.

* including the year 2000, sorry @Scagden

Forgot to participate but I assume someone else nominated Turn 21 by The Donnas so I’ll be back to see it make the top 3.

Holding this vote before Kanye releases this Jesus album will probably make us look VERY silly when it sweeps all the AotY lists

Touché Mr Warn, touché

Forgot. Wouldn’t have mattered. Very much doubt we’d have ended up with a top 5 consisting exclusively of King Gizzard & The Wizard Lizard.

Random Statistic

While several acts had 5 different albums nominated, Kanye West is the only artist with 6 separate releases that received at least one nomination.
