The Next Best 111 Albums of the 2000s
This one is ordered confusingly - I thought it was alphabetical, but then if there is more than one album per artist (like Bright Eyes), they list the more recent album after the older album instead of in alphabetical order. And then it goes back to alphabetical order for the two Cat Power albums. There are corresponding numbers, but I'm almost sure it isn't ranked.

There's a "Next Best 111 Best Albums of the 2000s" as well. Is that what you meant?

Edit: Oh yes, the front page promises a songs list as well!

I'm going to resume adding lists, but should I also include the small "11 Best Albums of __" lists or should I just include the bigger lists? For the moment, I'm only adding the bigger ones, but I'll go back and add the smaller ones if you want those too.

I added the album runners-up, but I can't find any songs list. Where does it mention that?

Hmm...might need to check that again. (I think he might be referring to the smaller lists of best songs that he includes with each artist, which wouldn't be eligible. I scanned through the whole book, and there doesn't appear to be a 111 Best Songs list).
