Making lists isn’t easy task, especially a list like this one. Out of all the albums that’s out there and have been out there for the last 14 years, someone is confident enough to pick just 21 of them. But on the other side, reviewers and peoples making those list (like us) are always right about one thing: that is just one opinion and in the era of internet we are free to discuss it. So it might not be an easy task, but since the people love this lists so much, somebody got to do it. Here we have GQ’s list of the best music you can find that was released in this century. We see a lot of Hip-Hop there and it makes us happy (not to down other genres). Without further ado - 21 Album From The 21st Century Every Man Should Hear. View Larger
