Someone Takes A Stab At The Top Records of 2005
Not a bad list, personal preferences being what they are, so decide for yourself what you think about Stereogum's Top 20 Albums Of 2005. 6 of our picks overlap*. What are they missing? Feist ( And being looks-defyingly sultry of voice, she gets a bonus award for being the hottest singer on this list ), Drive-By Truckers, Louis XIV, Switchfoot, Kaiser Chiefs, Marc Broussard, Scissor Sisters, Steriogram, Morningwood, MC5 and, in their 11th consecutive year, Bonepony for "Stomp Revival." Because it has never left my CD player and never will.
I know, I know, that doesn't add up to 20, but finding 20 good albums in any year is impossible.
*The overlaps are: Bright Eyes, LCD Soundsystem, Sleater-Kinney, The Decemberists, Spoon and Bloc Party.
