The only reason I know is because I finally bought the actual CD (as opposed to the downloaded tracks I've been listening to) and it said 2003 on the case. But I've been listening to their music for...over two years now, I think.

the strokes - room on fire
slow reader - slow reader
the blood brothers - burn, piano island, burn
white stripes - elephant
cat power - you are free

honorable mention:
postal service - give up
peaches - fatherfucker
belle & sebastian - dear catastrophe waitress
radiohead - hail to the thief
some of my best friends are djs - kid koala

actually, all of these are not in any particular order.  these were just the albums i listen to the most in 2003.  i'm sure i'm missing some but oh well, whatever!

fantastic.

but what about the GREAT albums of the year? what about St. Anger, American Life and um,  "Results May Vary"  ?  


this year is now being labeled as the year in which nü-metal died.  :P

Out Of Season didn't get released until this year in the states, so you can count it if you want.

I can't quite figure out why I never picked up Elephant. It's topping most lists, and I liked the singles and their last album. Curious. Maybe I'll pick it up tomorrow.

As with every year, it's very tough to narrow down to five, I'm not sure who ever came up with that number.
In no order:
Spiritualized ~ Amazing Grace
The Kills ~ Keep On Your Mean Side
Constantines ~ Shine A Light
Desert Sessions Vol. 9&10
Verbena ~ La Musica Negra

You should.  It's amazing.  It's definitely my favorite of this year, although i haven't explored a lot of what is out there in 2003, but for what's readily available to me, it's the best.

It far exceeds their last album.

Elephant is a pretty good album, but I say it doesn't top their debut or De Stijl.
