A Decade in Music, Part 1: 2000 & 2001

As a huge music fan, I feel it’s my obligation to share with people what music is out there besides the mainstream, and give my two cents worth on what rocked my boat over the past year. This year, as 2009 brings us to the close of a decade, I’ve decide to share my best of(s) and favorites from every year, starting with this installment from 2000 and 2001.
Some of it is electronic, some of it is underground indie and alternative, and some of it is pure pop. Sue me, I like what I like. The thing that holds all of these together is that they are solid and have held up over the years. So let us step into the way back machine and revisit the first two years of the 00’s, listed in alphabetical order:
