No they're not.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Greatest Albums of the 2000s

Incredible the variety of musical tastes in here.

My vote for the best album of the decade would be Eminem Show.

Shady was at his peak here.

Re: Greatest Albums of the 2000s

Fave albums of 2000's

Radiohead - In Rainbows (their best album, after Hail to the Thief/OK Computer... Radiohead tended to improve musically as they got older and more mature, still I enjoy every single album they ever made and still frequently listen to Pablo Honey, even.)
Daft Punk - Discovery
Killswitch Engage - Alive or Just Breathing
Thomas Adès - Tevot
MGMT - Congratulations (yes over Oracular Spectacular)
Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker OST
Jónsi - Go
The Holiday (film) - OST




Favourite acts of the 2000's

Jamiroquai
Calvin Harris
Daft Punk
Hanz Zimmer
Radiohead
MGMT
Thomas Adès
Dream Theater
Ratatat
James MacMillan
Coldplay
Perfume
Explosions in the Sky


Worst music of the 2000's in general; (un)cool Indie rock type. Thankfully it seems to have *fucked* right off, at least in the incarnation that it existed in for most of the 2000's.

Yeh, was a great decade for electronica, it is the main music which populates my list from this decade, which would not be the same actually for any single other decade in music.

Re: Greatest Albums of the 2000s

That's tough to remember and to choose from. However, one album really caught my attention.

Hurts - Happiness

Re: Greatest Albums of the 2000s

There isn't any particular order:

Bloc Party - Silent Alarm (2005)
Interpol - Our Love to Admire (2007)
Buraka Som Sistema - Black Diamond (2008)
Justice - Cross (2007)
Editors - An End Has a Start (2007)

Maybe I'm being unfair to other albuns I love, but i just remember these, right now...
