oh hay friends! 2005 was great!

in the interest of brevity, merely my top ten:

1. SUFJAN STEVENS, ILLINOIS (in all caps for a reason)
2. the decemberists, picaresque
3. devendra banhart, cripple crow
4. the mountain goats, the sunset tree
5. kanye west, late registration
6. franz ferdinand, you could have it so much better
7. broken social scene, s/t
8. animal collective, feels
9. common, be
10. daft punk, human after all

feel free to fight me, but not on sufjan. i'm not budging an inch on that album, which has produced one of the only perfect songs in my eyes, 'john wayne gacy, jr.' you can't beat that. and closer to the real end of the year, i'll be posting in my own blog ( what a shameless plug) my top 20 with better explanations.

are you seriously going to say that the daft punk album was in the top ten? really? they actually admit that they are "human after all," which in american terminology means that they've fallen off. although they managed to leave off the terrible human voice singing from past albums, there's not one song that develops any further than the first 10 seconds.

you did come off as a jerk. but yes, the more i listen to it, the more i love it. and you know i don't mind repetitive songs, i appreciate the repetition in techno songs because, well, it lets me know how to dance. but if it makes you feel better, there were about five albums tied for tenth, none really better than the others.
