    Battle of the 2000s Albums

    Thought last night while I couldn't get to bed that this would be worth having. Many of us are under the age of 25, and thus don't have the extensive knowledge of others of albums of earlier periods. But most, if not all, of the members who have an interest in music have a good knowledge and an opinion on most music over the past 9 years or so, and as we near the end of the decade it would be worth conducting this poll.

    So, for starters, everyone gets 8 nominations, and 8 secondings. At this stage, any album that receives a second is through to the draw.

    Nominate:

    Streets, The - A Grand Don't Come For Free
    Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
    Kings of Leon - Aha Shake Heartbreak
    Strokes, The - Is This It?

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
