    yourpopquizkid: They're five good ones at least :P This year was strong, normally albums like those would end up in the top 20 or so for me. rebeltoconform: Not a bad list. I'm not the biggest Caribou or Thunderbirds are Now! fan and I've heard a lot of good things about The Russian Futurists. Is 'plans' actually good? From the tracks I've heard it sounds pretty crappy. Blankster07: Nice list, I've got The Books album in the post still. Completely forgot about The Clientele album as well, that was decent. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's album was pretty bollocks I thought, don't know why they've been getting so much attention. Bet it's got to do with shitty Pitchfork. Bashmore: I like that list. Was 'Nashville' a 2005 album? I thought it was '04? I'll look into that later as that was a good album as well. Haven't got the QOTSA, Go Team, Mylo or Magnet albums, but QOTSA and Mylo I've been tempted by. The Go! Team don't impress me at all. _Ikkuh_: Really? Their singles haven't impressed me so I haven't got the album. They're like The Futureheads, Libertines & Clap Your Hands Say Yeah in that I can't understand why people like them. EDIT: Shit, I totally forgot Efterklang's 'Tripper'. That album would slide in after Okkervil River's.

    Some nice choices. Get a chance to listen to dredg, Oceansize, Circa Survive? I definately agree with: Sufjan Stevens - ...Illinois From Monument To Masses - Schools of thought contend Of Montreal - The Sunlandic Twins Team Sleep - Team Sleep Deerhoof - Green Cosmos (what about Runners Four?) M83 - Before the Dawn Heals Us Okkervil River - Black Sheep Boy Red Sparowes - At the soundless dawn Beck - Guerro Minus the Bear - Menos El Oso Mahjongg - Raydoncong The New Pornographers - Twin Cinema Gotta disagree with The Decemberists though. They're one of those bands that I can't understand why people like them. Stars, Rilo Kiley, (and the Arcade Fire, The Go! Team mentioned in comments) are great albums, albeit 2004 releases. Ima post my top albums sometime at the end of this month.

    Nice long list...you buy sooo many CDs, Andrew. Wish I had that kind of cash... :( I think I must own about 3 of those Cds, however, but you've inspired me to write my own list now. I'll have to have a think...

    spectre1982: Can't say I'm much of a Dredg fan. Oceansize are good, got a CD, 7 and 10 from them but I don't like them enough to buy a full album. Circa Survive are decent, I've got 'The inuit sessions' EP which is alright, but I just find those Anthony Green related bands to be slightly over-rated. 'Set yourself on fire' was a 2005 album, 'more adventurous' and 'funeral' were 2004 though. Although for UK people who don't import, 'funeral' was an '05 album (I imported last year so I don't count it). Rob, I wish I had money as well, it's all from the student loan or HSBC credit cards.

    Weeeeell...I know the Stars album is '04 because I bought Set Yourself On Fire in 2004. http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/record-reviews/s/stars/set-yourself-on-fire.shtml I don't know if your mind is made up about those other releases, but I would urge you to give them a second listen!

    ^ After a little reseach I found it was only released in Canada in 2004, everywhere else in the world it was 2005. I still consider it an '05 album.

    You included 'Nite Versions' but not 'Any Minute Now'? Bah!

    Did Want Two come out in the UK in 2005 im not sure...if it is thats going on my list

    8 déc. 2005, 10h54m
  • andrewbiles

    G3K: Well, yeah. 'Any minute now' was a 2004 release. Bashmore: The Rufus Wainwright album? I haven't heard it myself but I believe he did release one this year. Worth checking out?

    8 déc. 2005, 14h53m
  • Bashmore

    Most definitely...but if i were you Id get Want which has just come out...Its Want One and Want Two together as one...how they should have been...and to be honest...its spactastic

    Any Minute Now received its only US release (digitally) in '05, so I figure it counts for me :-)

    8 déc. 2005, 17h01m
  • andrewbiles

    I'm suprised they didn't get a US release for it earlier even if it was a small one, but then I guess it must happen all the time to good artists just with the internet it's easy to import and stuff.

    Great list Andrew :) Nice to see one with some more obscure artists like Psapp and Halloween, Alaska, rather than just Sufjan Stevens and Bloc Party (though I admittedly have those albums and enjoy them).
