How about since 2001, when the century started... :)

I'd be hard pressed to come up with more than a couple of dozen, so probably would not join in

Since 2000 could mean since the completion of 2000... ;)

No it doesn't, and for many people the century began on January 1st 2000.

And as common usage is the only real standard we have in the English language...

That'll be the cutoff date because I think it is what feels familiar to most people.

Technically, every second of every day is the start of a century, but whatever the mavens of three-ring-circus no-zero dying-god-notional-birthday gimmick tell you, the 21st century, and third millennium started, like all previous in the Xtian era on 1/1/01. And common usage isn't the only 'real' (whatever that means) standard. There's history and maths, for instance. Nobody disputes that the 19th century CE ended in 1900, for instance, and no-one suggest they started counting the first century at 0, as the concept of zero didn't exist when that monk magicked up X's birthday by counting back.
Not that any of this matters a damn in great scheme of things, I just had a Pedanticus attack and fancied a ride on a hobby horse :D .

But why call it albums of 'the century' anyway, if we only had just under 17 years of it? Why not Top 100 albums since 2000 (leaving aside K's footling)?

Anyhow, ducking out now, didn't mean to cause a fuss, sorry.

I'll be interested in seeing the results of this, but I'd be surprised if you get enough of a consensus to make a meaningful list.

Oh god. Maybe this isn’t a good idea. The Raven That Refused to Sing (And Other Stories) will definitely make an appearance.

Not sure if you are talking to me or penk, but if the former, because that's a couple of dozen albums this century that I know of, rather than ones I would vote for.


Penk.
