Discovery - Daft Punk.

No competition really. French duo could have played to the hipster crowd after the barn storming Homwork from 1997 but decided to push their creative boundaries and changed pop music for the decade to come as a result. Discovery is a record that wears its love of pop music on its sleave and it set the tone for the rest of the decade.This album is way more influential than anybody would have first realised back in 2001.Probably way more influential than any of us realise .... even now. Nostalgia without arch- awarnesss of the fact. Samplism but done so slickly. Pretty much foreshadowed the decade long fatuation with 80s music. Its such a good record.....Timeless. Seriously just go listen to it right now. Merci !

P.S. they werent to have known but they did have a sizeable part to play in the birth of autotune!
