The Decade Defined – Past 10 Years


November 9, 2009 – It’s hard to believe, but the first decade of the new millennium is rapidly drawing to a close — and it’s been a remarkable one for music. AllSongs Considered, which launched on Jan. 1, 2000, has had a front-row seat for all the amazing artists, albums and songs released in the past 10 years, from the klezmer music of Kaila Flexer (featured on our first episode) to the noise-rock of the New Zealand band The Dead C (featured last week).

In this edition of All Songs Considered, host Bob Boilen looks back at some of the defining trends, sounds and historic moments that made the ’00s stand out, in a roundtable discussion with Monitor Mix blogger Carrie Brownstein, All Songs Considered producer Robin Hilton and NPR Music editor Stephen Thompson.
