The Top 20 Albums of the '00s: Number 17

...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead - Source Tags And Codes (2002, Interscope)

For a five-year period, between 1998 and 2002, no one could match the sonic intensity of ...Trail Of Dead. With "Source Tags And Codes", their third album, the Austin, Texas band finally perfected their elaborate sonic assault, creating the noise masterpiece they had promised with "Madonna" right at the end of the '90s. See also our 2002 review and check out here why Pitchfork gave it a rare 10 out of 10 rating.
