Influential Albums of the 2000s Decade

Flyleaf (2005) by Flyleaf

The album influenced me to listen to rock music. It contains wonderful messages about life, love and God, accompanied by suitable guitar riffs and Lacey's majestic voice. The album taught me how to write poems with deeper meaning.

All We Know Is Falling (2005) by Paramore

The album is one of my faves. The songs are emo and it is catchy. I love Hayley Williams' voice and her hair. I love the sound of their songs. It is not noisy.

When Silence Is Broken, The Night Is Torn (2006) by Eyes Set to Kill

The album made me listen to much darker songs or pushed me to listen to post-hardcore, screamo and the likes. The songs are amazing and the guitar riffs are good.

Walking with Strangers (2007) by The Birthday Massacre

The album contains real spooky melodic songs. The production is great and the synths are playful. One of the best synthpop/rock album ever.

High School Musical + Headstrong + V 

Disney machine produces talented young stars. During the High School Musical era, I was really into dancing and singing. I performed What I've Been Looking For on our school play. I am a great fan of Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale. I love how pretty they are and their voices. The 3 albums have been part of my life.

The Fame (2008) by Lady Gaga

I am always a fan of Pop music and culture. Sometimes, I based my life on it. Pop music is trendy and this album shifted the trend of pop music from Urban-pop (Rihanna & Nelly Furtado) to Electropop. Every artists in that era were really gaga, wearing surreal outfits in their music video and performances. I always sing her songs and try hard to copy her dance moves.

One of the Boys (2008) by Katy Perry

During the pop rock, new wave, indie music era, Katy Perry released her campy album preceded by Ur So Gay and I Kissed a Girl. Both songs are titled in homosexual themes and even her album title. Katy rocks it out with catchy tunes dissing off ex-boyfriends. She told us that she'll break the mold and stereotype but, unfortunately, she never kept it. Well, her album is great and I love her outfits during this era.
