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)
