How about My Brightest Diamond's Bring Me the Workhorse or Neko Case's Fox Confessor Brings the Flood?


yeah...was a little surprised that damien rice's '9' wasn't on least it got honorable mention.

didn't realize bazan put out a new cd...thx for that.

Steve McCoy

Nice list Kev.

hey, cool out peeps! love this action kev. I'm not at all surprised that Damien's wasn't on there. It probably should've been, maybe... dunno haven't listened. but ultimately kevin tackled as best as he could and is bound to miss a few... so comment below and add other credible ones and let's make the list longer than his above.

for me, the album of the year, although actually produced in 2005 was The National - Alligator. check it out if you haven't.

Justin Buzzard

Thanks for the list Kevin.
I especially agree with the Nautical Antiques choice. Pinback gets lots of play down here in Cali.

other notables:

the black keys- magic potion

the flaming lips - at war with the mystics (especially if you have 5.1 and up surround sound. these guys went to great lengths to even include instructions on how to set up your audio system for interesting surround sound effects). surprised kev left out his fellow oklahomans

TVOR - Return to cookie mountain

Johnny Cash - American V: A hundred highways

built to spill - you in reverse

snow patrol - eyes open (yeah yeah i know... nearly pop... but i still dig it)

m.ward - post - war

alright i'll stop there for fear of diluting my recommendations. these all are top 25 for me for sure

ben duininck

any way you can change your post to include artist names as well as album names?

Kevin Cawley

Thanks for the comments. I don't know why I didn't put the Lips on my list. The album is excellent-- I just didn't listen to it that much. A few quick responses:

I have Snow Patrol and I really like it.

I haven't heard TVOTR's album. I have Desperate Youth... and like it OK.

Built to Spill made the list at #25

The Black Keys made the list initially, and then was removed.

I might put up Artist's names...but I thought that you either know the names and agree/disagree, or need to do further investigation ;-)

ben duininck

tis a good way to force me to investigate

Kevin Cawley

Artist names have been appended to the list. Hope it increases your enjoyment...and caters to your laziness...

Neko is alright. I like the album but have yet to acquire it means...felt a bit dirty about putting an album on a list that I hadn't purchased...or at least been given...oh yeah, and I haven't picked up My Brightest Diamond yet...she's on the list.

jamie Cain

Great list. Would have added Midlake's "The Trials of Van Occupanther."
