Can You Believe These Albums Are 20 Years Old?

If you could only pick one of these, what would you choose?

After joining a press conference with the Deftones to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of ‘White Pony,’ it made me think more about albums that came out in the year 2000.

I remember that being a great year for music, but you don’t realize how many iconic albums were released 20 years ago until you start looking through them.
