Top ten of 2002

December 28, 2002

In a very non-surprising move, I've come up with my top ten albums and movies of 2002. The music list was actually pretty easy to build — I know I'll be listening to most of these for years to come. In fact, the Coldplay album could, over time, squeeze its way into my top ten of all time. I'm in love with it. So tragic and beautiful, so good.

  • Coldplay - A Rush Of Blood To The Head
  • Norah Jones - Come Away With Me
  • Beth Orton - Daybreaker
  • Counting Crows - Hard Candy
  • The Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
  • Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
  • Beck - Sea Change
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers - By The Way
  • John Coltrane - Ballads (remastered)
  • Dave Matthews Band - Busted Stuff

The movie list was a bit more difficult to create. There just wasn't too much "great" stuff this year. Keep in mind that I haven't seen Gangs of New York, Pinocchio, The Hours, About Schmidt, Adaptation, or The Pianist yet. I'm sure some of those would have probably made their way onto the list.

  • Amelie
  • The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
  • Spiderman
  • Minority Report
  • The Count of Monte Cristo
  • Road to Perdition
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
  • About A Boy
  • 8 Mile
  • My Big Fat Greek Wedding
