View Full Version : Top 10 Albums of 2002
12-30-2002, 05:39 AM
Yeah, I'm sure this has prolly been covered, but fuck it. Here's my list.
1. El-P - Fantastic Damage
2. Insight - Updated Software
3. RJD2 - Dead Ringer
4. MF Grimm - Downfall of Ibiliyis
5. Mr. Lif - I Phantom
6. People Under the Stairs - O.S.T.
7. PSC - Justify the Means
8. Motion Man - Clearing the Field
9. Planet Asia - Still in Training
10. Copywrite - The High Exalted
I've gone back and forth all year between Fan Dam and Software, but Fan Dam's 'fucked-up-ness' (for lack of a better term), clinches it. El-P steps up his lyrical content as well.
Dead Ringer was a classic as well, but I don't feel right ranking an instrumental (for the most part) album as the best.

Nice lists, guys.
Never gave EP's a thought. Have to include Skhoolyard's New Way of Thinking, along with Aesop's Daylight EP, somewhere in the Top 10; removing Planet Asia and Copywrite from my list.
Little Brother won't be officially released until next month, so I didn't include it. Sue me for being a technical asshole. :-)
PM's not shitting about the Scarface album. Get's an honorable mention (along with GZA, Atmosphere, etc.) from me.
01. J-Live - All of the Above
02. Eydea - the Many Faces of Oliver Hart
03. Grouch - Crusader for Justice
04. Bootcamp Clik - The Chosen Few
05. PSC - Justify the Means
06. Jurassic 5 - Power In Numbers
07. RJD2 - Deadringer
08. Cage - Movies for the Blind
09. Mr. Lif - I Phantom

Everything else has songs I skip...
Non Phixion-The Future is Now
2 dope albums i didnt see in anyone list and as for eps...
I'd have to put:
#1 El-P - Fantastic Damage
#2 MF Grimm - The Downfall of Ibliys
#3 Doug Martsch - Now You Know
#4 Grouch - Crusader For Justice
#5 Pavement - Slanted and Enchanted (reissue double CD)
#6 Aesop Rock - Daylight
#7 Rjd2 - Dead Ringer
#8 DJ Shadow - The Private Press
#9 Mum - Finally We Are No One
#10 (I'm not gonna put anything here cos all I can think of is Mr. Lif and Atmosphere, and of those two Atmos deserves the #10 spot more, but I still don't wanna put them down. I wish I've heard that Boom Bip album, but it's too damn expensive.)
my humble 10 top albums 2002
cypha 7 - tha inner g
xololanxinxo - marketing the monsters
hip hop kclan - thomakazee
busdriver - temporary forever
the grouch - crusader for justice
elusive - audio
anacron - one with the elements
awol 1 - #3 on the phone
themselves - the no music
ttc - ceci n'est pas une disque

I forgot about the new J5 and The Magnificent JJ.
Those both go on my list as well. You can't fade "For the Love of the Game"
That song is the knock.
