Set 12 2008, 0:19 di DanAbnrml9It's the time of year to take stock of 2005's contributions to art, film, and music, though honestly I only feel qualified to comment on the latter. Here goes.
2005 was a break from the past few years because, despite being a relatively strong year overall, I didn't have the benefit of working in a record store, and even my freelance writing took a bit of a back seat, so I acquired fewer albums than I have in some time. That said, looking at all the CDs I did get this year, most of them seem to be quite good. Picking just twenty was again difficult, and I like having that problem.
Let's get ourselves started off with some review from years' past.
2004's top albums write-up, in its entirety.
1999 - Fountains of Wayne/Utopia Parkway
2000 - XTC/Wasp Star (Apple Venus Vol. 2)
2001 - Ben Folds/Rockin' the Suburbs
2002 - The Candy Butchers/Play With Your Head
2003 - Fountains of Wayne/Welcome Interstate Managers
2004 - Gwen Stefani/Love.Angel.Music.Baby
