This may just be because I am out of touch with modern music - you may find when you are my age you feel the same, and you'll be surprised how fine you feel about it.
Or it may be that the 'album' paradigm is dead, and that music is more diverse and fragmented than that now. Perhaps the 'big album' survived from 'Songs for Swinging Lovers' to 'OK Computer' and is gone now.
Or perhaps it is that the noughties, like the eighties, just aren't that good for music. I mean, I was in my twenties in the eighties, I went out every night and had a great time. Live comedy was fantastic in those days, but music was pretty moribund. Perhaps we are in a slow patch just now.
But even given those possibilities, what might be the albums we will look back on from the future, as great and memorable albums of this decade? I am thinking 'The Marshall Mathers LP' by eminem, 'Back to Black' by Amy Winehouse, something by Kanye West? 'Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not'? Something by Queens of the Stone Age or the White Stripes? One of my favourite albums of the last ten years has been the first Franz Ferdinand LP.
These are just off the top of my head - what do you think?
