Relatively new (began releasing albums in the 21st Century)

Dresden Dolls / Amanda Palmer

Yeah Yeah Yeahs

The Kills

The Arctic Monkeys

The Broken Family Band

The Von Bondies

Clinic

However: even though these have all been around for three decades now, I reckon that Nick Cave, Morrissey and The Fall/Mark E. Smith have all released great stuff in the noughties. Other durable artists who have continued to release albums of sheer excellence: Eels, Low, Guided By Voices, Lucinda Williams.

This is my first post so I don't want to overstep my boundries, but when I think of "best overall" artist I think of someone who has made a huge impact with their music. That being the case I'd have to say John Frusciante.

In the past decade he has had group releases (from the Chili Peppers) like Californication (I know it was 1999 but that's close enough), By The Way, and Stadium Arcadium and solo releases like To Record Only Water for Ten Days, Shadows Collide with People, and his newest The Empyrean.

These don't even include his collaborations with The Mars Volta.
