Reddit Fixes GQ’s List of Best Albums, Delivers a Better List

by Rob Slater on July 31, 2014

Yesterday, we told you about GQ's new list of "21 Albums From the 21st Century Every Man Should Listen To" and as you'd expect, it was met with the amount of criticism that nearly every list receives. Yes, there were some flaws in the original list. For one, Radiohead was noticeably absent. The list of gripes could go on and on however, users over at Reddit's r/music took their turn at compiling a list of the best album's from the 2000s.

The list was broken down in terms of popularity, with the four "most popular" albums coming in the form of Radiohead's Kid A and the debut efforts from The Stokes (Is This It), Arcade Fire (Funeral) and Kanye West (College Dropout). The next two categories feature a wide variety of submissions including a pair of records from The White Stripes as well as Queens of the Stone Age, Wilco's iconic Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, a pair from Modest Mouse and Arctic Monkeys' stellar debut record.

All in all, much better job, Reddit. You're always delivering the goods, despite that whole r/NoSleep thing. Check out the full list below.
