Just peruse everyone's number one listing and you'll get a good best-of sampling.

Nellie McKay- Get Away From Me


that album came out feb 2004


 :oops:

Oops.  I had looked on her website and it said 2005, but it turns out that was referring to a special edition Dual Disc release of the album.  My bad.  But it turns out she's got a new album coming out soon, so maybe that'll make its way onto my list.

is there anything in particular this year that I just have to hear?


These two are amazing, and I haven't seen them on anyone else's lists: David Poe's "Love is Red" and The Eels' "Blinking Lights and Other Revelations".
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

I'm really disappointed in myself. I haven't heard many of the albums you all have listed above. Gah! Must.. get.. to.. record store. I will preview a few of these soon. Lots of you have posted favorites but is there anything in particular this year that I just have to hear?


i think ryan adams' cold roses would be th emost universally appealing for you....

one thing it aint ghetto thug rap, it aitn nu-metal, it aint rap-metal, it anint ghey/cheesy pop, nor is it pseudo-hip 10.0 pitrchforkmedia dicksuckign material....its just good stuff......

its oen of those albums that if you dotn like it you should not be allowed to listen to music b/c your tastes suck...

I wonder how Nellie McKay would top "Get Away From Me"... that was superb.

I just bought the new Ryan Adams album as recommended above. I need to give it a few more listens but there are quite a few excellent tracks so far.

1. and
Okkervil River: Black Sheep Boy and the appendix - Hands down the best thing to come out of this year.  You would think that the EP would be throw away shit, but it's so much better than that.  I can't stop listening to it.  I've seen them three times this year and they're incredible live.

2.

3.
Sigur Ros: Takk - can't wait to see them in Feb.

4.

5.

6.
though I don't get why the remix album gets so much credit, half the remixes are shit.

7.
Devendra - Cripple

8.
My Morning Jacket - Z

9.
This really only deserves an honorable mention, but there really wasn't much else out this year.

10.
Same deal as with Spoon... gotta love Bob Mould though... The most progressive gay oldschool punk-rocker

Here's my list of some great 2005 fancy-tickling tunes:

10. The New Pornographers - Twin Cinema

I wrote this album off after one listen through, but like most of the other albums i've bought this year it definitely grew on me. After hearing so many people say "This is what weezer would've sounded like had they not sold out" or some ridiculous statement to that extent, i really didn't want to like this album but it did find its place.

9. Mercury Rev - The Secret Migration

Not as entrancing as Deserter's Songs and the first track made me wonder what the fuck was going on, but the album as a whole has some wonderful redeeming qualities, especially "in a funny way"

8. Man Man - The Man In a Blue Turbin With a Face

I think this album may have come out in 2004 but i just heard about it at the beginning of the year and it is magnificent. they came to oklahoma city recently and put on a fantastic show. its as if tom waits and the beatles had a very ugly baby.

7. Wilco - Kicking Television

Wilco live? I've seen them twice this year and they never ceases to amaze the shit out of me. Best living rock band in the world

6. Wolf Parade - Apologies to the Queen Mary

The modest mouse comparisons were prevalent when i first heard of this but there are some great great songs on this album and i'm definitely glad i spent the 15 bucks on it

5. Andrew Bird - Mysterious Production of Eggs

I first heard of Andrew Bird just this year and I have scrambled to get everything i can get my hands on. He's an amazing musician and from what i hear a great live performer. Everything i've heard from him from the 40s radio-tinged "Oh! The Grandeur" to the almost stephen malkmus-y pop tunes on this album he continually amazes me with his endless array of musical influences.

4. Devendra Banhart - Cripple Crow

a great lo-fi record that has more than a few songs that make me want to dance

3. Sufjan Stevens - Illinois

I think everyone has their own opinion of how truly great this cd is. and mine is probably no different from everyone Else's but what really shook me about this album at first was probably the lyrics to "John Wayne Gacy, Jr.".

2. Stephen Malkmus - Face the Truth

I love this. In a world sans-pavement its always a blessing to hear malkums making great, catchy, wonderful songs.

1. Animal Collective - Feels

This is the best cd of the year. I've heard nothing else like it and it gets better and better and better every single time it takes a spin in the cd player. "Grass", "Did You See The Words", "The Purple Bottle" - my favorites.

My only complaint this year is that Grandaddy didn't release their new LP yet. That "Excerpts from the Diary of Todd Zilla" was a joke and if that is what the new album is going to sound like I'm already disappointed.
