Music Meme: 2001

Continuing my list of favorite albums from every year I've been alive.

2001

Travis: The Invisible Band



Slow year. In the absence of a decent Alternative station in the Twin Cities, I was still listening to the Adult Contemporary station and not liking the Nickelback and Hoobastank I was getting. The only two albums I enjoyed from that year I discovered through other means.

One was a movie soundtrack and I was introduced to Travis by a buddy who'd seen them live and loved them. I got to see them live myself when they opened for Dido and I loved them too.

(Calvin, I'm deeply sorry about the weaponized octopus in this video.)



Runners Up:
Moulin Rouge Soundtrack

What the heck, let's do another (cephalopod free) video. It's not like there was anything else going on in music that year.
