The Top 20 Albums of the '00s: Number 10

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! (2008, Mute)

As the marathon of our daily posts about the best albums of this decade continues, we finally reach the Top 10 where we find a dear old friend and one of the finest works in a long and glorious career. "Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!" was the culmination of a particularly fertile period for Nick Cave that started with the excellent double album "Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus" in 2004 and continued with the fire and the fury of Grinderman's debut in 2007 (both of which also deserve a place in the decade's Top 50). Read more about it in this AllMusic review and check out here our 2008 review.
