EW Picks Kanye West’s ‘The College Dropout’ As Album Of The Decade

    Entertainment Weekly, aka Twilight Weekly, has published its list of the best albums of the decade, and they’ve gone out on a limb by picking Kanye West’s College Dropout as their numero uno. It’s a bold pick, but at least it’s not something by Lady Gaga or Radiohead.

     

    EW’s list also gets mad props for placing three hip-hop albums in their top five, which is something no magazine outside of XXL would do. But Bob Dylan and Dixie Chicks too? OK, gotta please everyone, I guess.

     

    Here’s the list:

     

    10 Cat Power – You Are Free (2003)
    09 Justin Timberlake – FutureSex/LoveSounds (2006)
    08 Beyoncé – I Am… Sasha Fierce (2008)
    07 The Arcade Fire – Funeral (2004)
    06 The Dixie Chicks – Home (2002)
    05 Bob Dylan – Love And Theft (2001)
    04 OutKast – Stankonia (2000)
    03 Radiohead – Kid A (2000)
    02 Jay-Z – The Blueprint (2001)
    01 Kanye West – The College Dropout (2004)
