    I thought I’d re-immerse myself into the time-consuming process that is end-of-year album reviews. I can’t promise to be very exhaustive. Also, please keep in mind that these are just the albums I bought because I expected to like them and I’m in no position to claim knowledge of everything released this past year.

    CocoRosieGrey Oceans
    I’m not sure what the bad cover artwork (complete with cheap effects and Microsoft fonts) is indicative of but it’s definitely not musical incompetence. CocoRosie can use this album to add to their long list of dreamy, wonderful, lusty songs that are a joy to listen to.

    Evelyn EvelynEvelyn Evelyn
    Amanda Palmer’s works are always enjoyable and this adventurous tale of conjoined twin sisters is no exception, though the thought of those fictional characters playing those songs might take some getting used to.
