mid-year top 10 albums

tim is still away this week doing business-type things, so on the show this week (14/6/05) i'm going to play a countdown of my top 10 albums of the year thus far. simply because its kind of the middle of the 6th month of the year. and because top 10s are always loads of fun, anyway. not really sure whats going to be on there yet, i guess you'll just have to listen to find out. the playlist and top 10 will be posted after the show on here, though.

the following week when tim's back will see a countdown of his own top 10 albums

readers/listeners - feel free to post yr own personal top 10s of 2005 so far in the comments section below.

I've found 2005 to be somewhat dissapointing music-wise, especially in comparison to last year (Funeral, SMiLE, Slow Wonder, etc.) - but the best albums/Eps that I've heard are as follows, in no particular order:

Phoenix Foundation - Pegasus
Iron & Wine - Woman King
Connan And The Mockasins - Naughty Holidays
Bright Eyes - I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning
The Decemberists - Picaresque
Sufjan Stevens - Illinois
Ghost Club - Suicide Train
The Good Goodbyes - The Good Goodbyes
Doves - Some Cities
The Boy Least Likely To - The Best Party Ever
... and the Toy Love re-issue.
