PopMatters (US) - The 100 Best Albums of the 2000s (2020)

I know there's a PopMatters '00s list on AM already, but this appears to be an update (I think - one line references "approaching 2015," but the order is different). Here are #s 100-81:

100. Nickel Creek - Why Should the Fire Die? [Sugar Hill]
99. Bubba Sparxxx - Deliverance [Beat Club/Interscope]
98. Mastodon - Leviathan [Relapse]
97. Autechre - Confield [Warp]
96. Iron & Wine - The Shepherd's Dog [Sub Pop]
95. Spoon - Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga [Merge/Anti-]
94. Elliott Smith - Figure 8 [DreamWorks]
93. The Clientele - Strange Geometry [Merge]
92. Guided by Voices - Isolation Drills [TVT]
91. Manic Street Preachers - Journal for Plague Lovers [Columbia]
90. Vex'd - Degenerate [Planet Mu]
89. Amon Tobin - Foley Room [Ninja Tune]
88. Antony and the Johnsons - I Am a Bird Now [Secretly Canadian]
87. The Decemberists - The Crane Wife [Capitol/Rough Trade]
86. Boards of Canada - Geogaddi [Warp]
85. My Morning Jacket - It Still Moves [ATO]
84. Bob Dylan - "Love and Theft" [Columbia]
83. Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein [Definitive Jux]
82. Miranda Lambert - Crazy Ex-Girlfriend [Columbia Nashville]
81. D'Angelo - Voodoo [Virgin]

EDIT: Having just re-checked the 2014 list, it might just be a re-ordering. All the albums in this range are the same, just in a different order.

The nerve to put the absolutely essential Voodoo at 81.
