Best of 2005 (CD's - not songs)

Postby SwampThing » Tue Jan 03, 2006 6:18 am

My favorites (not including reissues and comps) of 2005
1. Open Season - British Sea Power
2. Arcade Fire - Funeral
3. Elevator - Hot Hot Heat
4. Slient Alarm - Bloc Party
5. Every kind Of Light - The Posies
6. Oceans Apart - The Go-Betweens
7. Some Cities - The Doves
8. Plans - Death Cab For Cutie
9. The Back Room - Editors
10. Tourist - Athlete

I realize some may have been released late 2004

These following releases topped many critics lists, I should check them out.
Illinois - Sufjan Stevens
Z - My Morning Jacket
Takk... - Sigur Ros
Broken Social Scene - Broken Social Scene

This is a cool site

Edit: Oh and I should thank Blir for persistently raving about British Sea Power, honestly after hearing the song "Apologies to Insect Life" I didn't think they'd ever make it into my collection. I realized later that once you get past thier more "manic" material they are execellent song writers.

Hi Swamp, in case you're wondering about the lack of responses, there's a duplicate thread just a couple of posts below. Some good picks there too...of course I'm partial to your #1. [:I]

Thanks for the reply, I thought the other thread was centered around songs, not full releases.

True! Well shit, I'm digging in then. [8D]

1. British Sea Power - Open Season [:I]
2. New Order - Waiting for the Siren's Call
3. Goldfrapp - Supernature
4. Echo & the Bunnymen - Siberia
5. Brakes - Give Blood
6. M83 - Before the Dawn Heals Us
7. Beck - Guero
8. Iron & Wine w/ Calexico - In the Reins
9. Editors - The Back Room
10T. Garbage - Bleed Like Me
10T. Billy Corgan - The Future Embrace

Wow, this is the first year in awhile that is was hard picking only 10, leaving off decent stuff like Kaiser Chiefs, Franz, A-Ha, Simple Minds, Depeche Mode, Heaven 17, Fischerspooner, Ladytron, Vive la Fete, and Arcade Fire (late 2004 I thought). I guess that's promising.
