  1. I love posting these threads. It's both exciting to celebrate great albums plus also depressing how old I feel!

  3. Oh god, I bought so much in 2002. And never listen to any of it now!
  4. Same here. Don't hate me or @ me but I didn't find 2002 a particularly great year in music.

  5. I'll have to look at my 2002 folders and see what I was rating the most.
  6. I agree, actually. Usually I post these threads and there's a tonne of classic albums turning 20. 2002 appears to be less productive in that department but still a few gems.
  7. Nervously scrolled through this topic to see if there's any huge album that I love and will inevitably come back with 87 variants of obligatory anniversary merch but I'm glad to see that there's none... yet.
  8. My top 6:

    3. Kaleidoscope - Rachael Lampa
    4. Say It Again - Stacie Orrico
    5. Living Proof - Cher
    6. Obvious - Plus One

  9. Brandy’s Full Moon is one of my favorite albums ever. Such a masterpiece.
  10. OK, so back then I actually compiled Year End lists/summaries, and did a Top 75 albums for 2002, so here's the Top 40:

    I'll take Let Go, Angels With Dirty Faces, Thinking It Over and Licking On Both Sides/M!ssundaztood/Read My Lips (2002 albums over here) and run but this definitely wasn't the most exciting album year

    still better than 2021 though

    Also fairly enjoyable:
  13. The way Full Moon still sounds like the future. Miss Norwood doesn't get enough flowers!
  14. Was Maroon 5 really 2002? I always thought it was 2004?

    Crazy how some of these are 20 years old soon! Some great albums posted so far

    I think it was originally a 2002 album but their breakthrough with This Love being 2004
