Favourite Album of the Noughties?

What was your favourite album of the Noughties? For me it is "In Rainbows" by Radiohead... for three reasons:

1) It got me into Radiohead... who I had arrogantly ignored up until that point. I now have their whole back catalogue and they are my "most listened artist" according to Last.FM (708 as at date of post)

2) Their "pay what you want" approach to releasing their record changed the game... and redressed the balance of power in favour of the artist & the fan.

3) Its a flippin' good album! "Bodysnatchers" is a brilliant track... as are "nude" & "weird fishes / arpeggi". Oh and I love "reckoner". Yes... it is a brilliant album.

So yeah... what about you? What was you favourite album of the Noughties and why?
