My 25 Favorite Artists of the 2000s - #19

# 19 - Stars

While not necessarily being the most original band in the world, Stars have claimed the title of my favorite indie-pop band of the decade. Sounding at times (especially on the songs that Torquil Campbell sings) like an electro version of The Smiths, Stars spent the decade consistently making some of the most well-constructed songs I've heard. The band's instrumentation is very tight, and coupled with Campbell's songwriting abilities and Amy Millan's amazing voice, Stars were able to make not just one but three of my favorite albums of the last 10 years.

My Favorite Albums:
1. Set Yourself on Fire (2004)
2. In Our Bedroom After the War (2007)
3. Heart (2003)
