There were several others, as well.  Among them:

+ The Rolling Stones - A Bigger Bang
+ Kate Bush - Aerial
+ Bon Jovi - Have a Nice Day
+ Stevie Wonder - A Time to Love
+ Gorillaz - Demon Days (their first album in four years, with another blur album in-between)
+ System of a Down - Mezmerize
+ Fiona Apple - Extraordinary Machine
+ Nine Inch Nails - With Teeth
+ Foo Fighters - In Your Honor
+ Paul McCartney - Chaos and Creation in the Backyard
+ Weezer - Make Believe
+ Depeche Mode - Playing the Angel
+ Kraftwerk - Minimum-Maximum
+ Neil Diamond - 12 Songs
+ John Hiatt - Master of Disaster
+ Judas Priest - Angel of Retribution
+ Will Smith - Lost and Found
+ Garbage - Bleed Like Me
+ INXS - Switch
+ Common - Be
+ Backstreet Boys - Never Gone

There was also a song by Baby Bash that year called "Baby I'm Back," which isn't explicitly about the rapper making a musical comeback like Mase's Welcome Back from the previous year, but the fact that it was the lead-off single to his sophomore album causes it to feel like a comeback song, regardless.

Here's my personal life's 'feelings' for these years.

2000- Read Harry Potter like crazy!
2001- Was still interested in Top 40 music, but didn't really like it, at the same time. I know, contradictory, huh?
2002- Catholic Church controversies, anthrax attacks, George Bush, a really political year. Had I been in a better place mentally, I would have read politics more.
2003- A really happy, optimistic year, for me.
2004- Another bouncy, happy year. I lost weight, but gained due to well...bad habits. Got interested in Family Guy for the first time. Early high school years. Went to Vietnam for a second time.
2005- Rap, rap, and more rap. That's all i remember.
2006- Myspace baby! I actually liked it at the time.
2007- A fun year. Don't exactly know why. Just liked the energy of the year!
2008- Another fun year. I think the news was fun to watch that year, due to the election. I loved watching both sides (Democrats and Republicans) tear each other up. LOL.
2009- Worse year of my whole life.....so far. Let's let it stay that way.
