    that album was somewhat of a disappointment, having had all the earlier demos for a long time i was really expecting something more, but their live show....wow

    I agree with you, in fact. Many of the demos blow away the album versions and many of my faves didn't make the album. But the album still blows away most of the other crap out there this year. And the live show....wow

    Corrine Bailey Rae.

    Self titled debut.

    Awesome stuff from a gal out of Britain who can really do old school R&B

    I can't think of one great album this year. Unfortunately. And I have heard over 100 given one of my best friends is a music reviewer. many of the above I would classify as "mediocre" to good at best. Just MO.

    Heh, that's odd. I write about music also and I thought this year was an astounding year for music. Besides the disappointments (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Flamings Lips, anything Bob Pollard touches), this has been the best year for music in quite a long time.

    And whodini: yeah. [​IMG] I went to a lot of great out of town performances this year, but I'm really biased towards Black Cat. Such a fun venue.

    Black Cat is just a very welcomed addition to the DC scene.

    I'm not sure of too many but

    Lupe Fiasco's Lupe Fiasco's Food and Liquor

    is pretty damned good. Certainly in a top ten of someone's I would think.

    b

    Boris: Dronevil Final
    Boris: Pink
    [...]
    Sunn O))): White Box


    Good call on these; in fact, the collaborative album -- Altar -- between Sunn O))) and Boris should have made my top 10 list for the year.

    I saw Sunn O))) live last month, and it was probably the best show I've ever seen. One chord at 160dB lasting for 90 minutes. Awesome.

    I have to give this one to Gnarls Barkley with St. Elsewhere. What an amazing and listenable album. I also loved Regina Spektor's Begin to Hope.

    Asobi Seksu's Citrus gets my vote.

    I have to say I was hugely disappointed by the Raconteurs as well. I'm not a big Jack White fan, but I dig Benson, and the Greenhornes... this album was just shite.

    Oh yah, and really good albums this year from Mando Diao, Sloan, Black Angels, You Am I, Blue Van, umm... forget who else.

    Bruce Springsteen - The Seeger Sessions. Old timey folk rocks!

    Bob Dylan - Modern Times. Rounds out the comeback trio along with Time out of Mind and Love & Theft

    Razorlight - Razorlight. Wasn't bad at all

    Cat Power - The Greatest. Hardcore fans don't think it stands up to some of her more adventurous stuff, but a nice listen none the less.

    The Killers - Sam's Town. Feels lacking at first, but grows on you, like a Coldplay CD
