Wednesday, November 09, 2005 


I'm in near-total disagreement with Anthony, for once; this year has been a tremendously exciting one for me, music-wise. If the year ended right now, I'd have serious trouble deciding what makes my top five for albums. And that's not even trying to listen to all the other albums I have sitting around/on my hard drive. Of course, out of all the albums he lists the only one that might show up in my top ten is Silent Alarm, so I think we may have had very different listening experiences this year. For some reason I've been listening to lots of instrumental and/or experimental stuff this year, which isn't particularly normal.

I'm with you, Ian -- 2005 has been a fantastic year.

And yet I'm pretty sure we have fairly little overlap as well - which only reinforces our point!
