Since I either bought or downloaded (legit, of course) a lot of good music this year, I thought I would let you kids know what I have been digging this year.

Here are the ten best, in alphabetical order, albums that I heard this year.

  • Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – Take Them On On Your Own
  • Broken Social Scene – You Lost It In People
  • Dressy Bessy
  • New Pornographers – Electric Version
  • Pretty Girls Make Graves – The New Romance
  • Raveonettes – Chain Gang Of Love
  • Spiritualized – Amazing Grace
  • Starflyer 59 – Old
  • Strokes – Room On Fire
  • White Stripes – Elephant

A few other things I bought or downloaded (again, legit downloads only! ha ha) that was damn cool too:

  • Blur – Think Tank
  • Cat Power – You Are Free
  • Kathleen Edwards – Failer
  • Guided By Voices – Earthquake Glue
  • Libertines – Up The Bracket

And although the album it was on kinda sucked, “Restraining Order Blues” by the eels is the best love song of this year, or any year.
