The Albums of 2001
The RaW music team are currently in the process of creating a brand new feature for Comapct Disco, RaW’s weekly music show broadcast every Wednesday between 5 and 7 p.m. However we need your help.
Every week we pick a specific year from the last four decades and showcasing three albums released in that year. Listeners and participants in the studio will then be able to vote for whichever album of the three they believe is the greatest.
With some years there are three albums which clearly standout. In other years it is much harder to reduce the list of albums to three and that is where you come in. Below is a shortlist of classic albums released in 2001 and we want your comments on which album you think is the best or most iunfluential and why. The three records with the most votes will be included in the feature which will be broadcast during a future edition of Compact Disco. (Also if you are a RaW member you can head you can vote in the poll directly by going to the ‘Music’ section of the RaW forums)
1. The Strokes – Is This It
2. The White Stripes – White Blood Cells
3. Feeder – Echo Park
4. Hear’Say – Popstars
5. Gorillaz – Gorillaz
6. Muse – Origin of Symmetry
7. Alicia Keys – Songs in A Minor
8. Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Yeah Yeah Yeahs
