A few months ago, several of us higher ed marketing/PR/communications types who happen to love music started talking across blogs, Twitter and email about collectively ranking our picks for the best albums of the 2000s.

The result of this discussion is Higher Ed Critics: The Top 100 Albums of the 2000s, a minty-fresh new blog offering the collective wisdom of seven higher ed folks whose musical tastes range from heavy industrial metallurgical sounds to that dulcet, wispy folk-inspired indie that has been so in vogue this past decade. The contributors are seven higher ed bloggers and tweeters you’ve come to know and love:

Steve Biernacki (@halogoggles)
Ron Bronson (@ronbronson)
Georgy Cohen (@radiofreegeorgy)
Mason Dyer (@MasonDyer)
Tim Nekritz (@TimNekritz)
Holly Rae Bemis-Schurtz (@hollyrae)
me (@andrewcareaga)

So, please, come visit our countdown. Read what we have to say. Listen to samples from the albums we’ve picked. Argue with us. We love witty banter.
