Top 20 favorite albums of 2005

December 9th, 2005 · No Comments

In 2005, I probably listened to more albums than any other year of my life, and with so much new music out there it was sometimes tough to find bands that really stood out. This year, the bands on my list are ones whose albums really “said” something to me — lyrically or musically.

The Warlocks and Echo & The Bunnymen released decent albums this year, and I thought Colder’s “Heat” and Tosca’s “J.A.C.” were great. Nic Armstrong’s “The Greatest White Liar” intrigued me, as did Wolf Parade’s “Apologies To The Queen Mary”. It was also good to see the re-release of Explosions In The Sky’s debut album, “How Strange, Innocence”. But none of them made my Top 20 favorites list. Why? Because none of them really blew me away. My list covers the albums that I listened to (and enjoyed) the most during 2005 — albums I kept returning to or that wouldn’t leave my head once I heard them.

I will post a list of my favorite Houston independent releases of 2005 soon.
