As this decade is coming to an end...?

Let's reflect on how the 00's were -- for music.

BQ - Overall, how do you think the 00's did music wise?

BQ2 - Did they do well compared to the 90's? 80's? 70's? 60's?

BQ3 - Favorite five albums from 00's?

BQ4 - What do you think this decade will be remembered for 10 years from now (e.g. 90's = Grunge/Alternative)

    BQ: we saw a little bit of this in the 90's but in the 00's music definitely shifted from mainstream to underground. I don't think the music itself was necessarily bad though.

    BQ2: I personally think there have been a lot of great stuff in each decade although I tend to lean towards the 90's and 00's more.

    BQ3: One answer per band.

    1. My Morning Jacket - Z

    2. The Verve - Fourth

    3. The Shins - Oh Inverted World

    4. Andrew Bird - Armchair Apocrypha

    5. Brett Dennen - Hope for The Hopeless

    BQ4: Indie Rock and the gap of quality music widening between mainstream and underground.

    BQ - I think the 00's were fine overall but not if you take into account what was popular or mainstream, going by that the 00's were a complete disaster and by the mainstream music has been since post grunge/boy bands/nu metal became popular back around 97 or so.

    BQ2 - that will be tough to gauge I think the 70s and 90s have it beat, 80s it may be comparable to though and 60s i don't really like besides the late 60s. based on mainstream music it is by far the worst decade out of those though.

    BQ3 - this is always tough

    Immolation - Unholy Cult

    Opeth - Blackwater Park

    Enslaved - Isa

    Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors

    Emperor - Prometheus: The Discipline of Fire & Demise

    the 2000s were pretty great for metal, rock they were absolutely terrible for.

    BQ4- hmm it wont be remembered too favorably I don't think, the mainstream music will be remembered as being very weak but people will probably think of emo/posthardcore/metalcore, pop-punk, post grunge type modern rock(nickelback, papa roach and all that) nu metal and rap the use of autotune, disney pop groups etc.. not really great things to be remembered for. music fans will remember the great underground releases.

    BQ5 - I hope the next decade the mainstream gets a lot better and the underground remains awesome.
