Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

1. Black Mountain- self titled
i love all the tracks on this album. can't pick a favorite. i blast this in my car

2. The Pink Mountaintops- self titled
same guys in black mountain, favorite tracks are "atmosphere" and "can you do that dance?"

3. 13 & God- self titled
somebody on here mentioned this album, i think it may have been pubrick.  
checked it out and have been hooked ever since. i love "perfect speed", "if" and "afterclap"

4. Adam Green- Gemstones
big fan of everything green has done for a while. this may not be his best, but it is still catchy as hell, and i do listen to it alot

5. Smog- A River Ain't Too Much To Love
got this album about two weeks ago, and have been listening to it non stop. listen to this at work all the time. i think it gets an actual release this week.

6. Mountain Goats- The Sunset Tree
"love, love, love" and "dance music" are my favorite tracks

7. Prefuse 73- Surrounded By Silence
i love everything prefuse does. "la correccion exchange" and "minutes away without you" are my favorite tracks. and maybe "pagina dos"[/img]

8. The Duke Spirit- Cuts Across The Land
kind of sound like jesus & mary chain fronted by pj harvey. "lion rip" and "darling you're mean" are my favorites

9. Feist- Let It Die
i don't know. i like it. i listen to it while i'm doing shit around my house.

10. 400 Blows- Angel's Trumpets and Devil's Trombones
this shit is heavy, and it slays. really good live too

there are some others, like the new decemberists, where i only really listen to like two songs, and i don't really like the rest.

So far this year I've been really digging new Josh Rouse, Of Montreal, Brendan Benson, Beck, Pernice Brothers, Teenage Fanclub, Mercury Rev, M83, Gorillaz.....

The new Spoon, Aimee Mann, Jim Boggia, Ivy, Doves, Feist, are not totally blowing me away but I'm still very happy to have them around and will continue giving them more time....

Still need to pick up new Sufjan Stevens and Daniel Lanois and I see some on your lists that I should probably check out, ie Mountain Goats, Bloc Party.

Very excited for forthcoming records from New Pornographers, Eric Matthews, Super Furry Animals, and actually the new Kanye mainly due to the collaboration with Jon Brion piqueing my interest.
I just met a wonderful new man. He's fictional but you can't have everything.

I haven't bought much this year, but about all that's worthy of being mentioned here would be:

1. Bright Eyes - I'm Wide Awake It's Morning
2. Fiona Apple - Extraordinary Machine
3. Martha Wainwright - BMFA
4. NIN - With Teeth

That last one is sort of indicative of how few records I've purchased - it's not even that great, but (in my opinion), it's still better than the Spoon, Billy Corgan and Beck albums (well, maybe it's on par with Guero) that I've also procured. I figure I'll pick up Sujifan Stevens this week - I really love him, so I know he'll place. And I'll joing the others in waiting for Devandra Barnhardt, Sigur Ros, etc. Oh, and Bjork's Drawing Restraint 9soundtrack comes out next week, I think...

Actually, the best thing I've bought this year is pretty old - Townes Van Zandt's Rear View Mirror. BRILLIANT.

Low - The Great Destroyer[/u]

This is my favorite artistic musical statement of the year so far.  
My appreciation of it grows deeper every time I hear it.

I can say with absolute certainty that I'm the only who cares, but with the exception of the song "Plane", Jason Mraz's new album is very disappointing.









I like saying "Mraz".  Mraz.  Mmmmmm-raz.  Mrazzzzzz.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Pubrick, I'm very inclined to disagree with you.

First off, nothing else has come out this year that I've heard that was better than those two albums, secondly, I really liked a majority of those albums.

I can sort of see what you're saying, they both have some high standards set for them...

But I can't get sick of "Not About Love" and I really like "Used To Love Him", "Red Red Red" and "Extraordinary Machine."  The album was a little lacking compared to her others... but really, Not About Love is an amazing song.  I guess the album declines from there sort of.

With Teeth also didn't really live up to NIN's standards.  I really like Hand That Feeds, All The Love In The World, and Right Where It Belongs and particularly enjoyed Only (which was cool to see it got a video).

I guess I looked at the fact that I really liked those albums and was really getting antsy for their new stuff, and since they were good albums by the year's standards but not by their respective artists' standards, I went with what was good in 2005 to me.

One change that was made to my list was dropping Belle and Sebastian (though I liked it) and replacing it with Common - Be.
