Fire eye'd boy give 'em all the slip
Why haven't I posted my top ten albums of 2005 yet? We're already well into February! At first I was delaying my selection because I had to catch up on a lot of records that I hadn't gotten around to listening yet. But now, I'm just stalling because I can't come up with a full list of ten albums. I keep stalling out at nine... there just wasn't another album last year that I enjoyed nearly as much as the nine listed below (in no particular order):
Broken Social Scene - "Broken Social Scene"
Ben Folds - "Songs for Silverman"
Spoon - "Gimmie Fiction"
The New Pornographers - "Twin Cinema"
Beck - "Guerro"
System of a Down - "Mesmerize"/"Hypnotize"
Deathray - "Believe Me"
Franz Ferdinand - "You Could Have It So Much Better"
Gorillaz - "Demon Days"
I guess it's ten if you count both discs of the System of a Down double album. Or, you could make it ten if you included The Go Team's "Thunder Lighting Strike," but that was really a 2004 album that just took forever to get an official release in North America.
But heck, what does it really matter anyway? I am just a man with a website, recommending some tunes that I enjoyed. I guess nine albums is probably good enough!
