I'm shocked and aghast that nobody on this board has begun a favorites of the year poll yet.

I suppose you're all away at Phish [Mad] and I'm not [Frown] . Bastards.

Anyways, what's your favorite Top 5 albums in the past year?

Mine would be:

1- Trey Anastasio

2- Boards of Canada- Geogaddi

3- The White Stripes- White Blood Cells

4- Particle

5- Grand Theft Bus- Birth of Confusion

White Blood Cells - The White Stripes


my fav. would have to be Trey's Album.

Didn't Jomomma release they're new one this past year, it is very good as well.

Neil Young's Are You Passionate was great. I'm Going Home is definately my fav new neil song.

Lastly, as i'm looking for my Jukejoint release, when was that done? I LOVE IT!

Seems a majority of CDs I bought this year were older but off the top of my head the one CD from 2002 that gets continual play around our place is Wilco's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. A fantastic album.

I'm also digging Norah Jones' "Come Away With Me" but having just got it a couple of weeks ago we'll have to see if it "sticks". Real good though.

Bill Frisell's "The Willies" is typically excellent Frisell. Does he make bad albums? Haven't heard one yet!

Oh, and I *love* "Round Room". Gets better and better with every play. I'm now into every single song on the album, a real rarity for me when it comes to Phish releases.

I also really like The Slip's "Angels Come On Time".

I must pick up the White Stripe's "White Blood Cells". I only have "De Steil" (sp.?) which I love. They're excellent! What fun!!

Funny, one CD from last year I thought would get endless play for me was The New Deal's "Live NYC" double-disc set but I find it a bit wierd: it's really hyperactive and doesn't entirely reflect the range their music can develop on a good night. Not as smooth and trippy as their other "sound+light" releases but still good. I just seem to throw on other live shows instead of this.

Hmmmmmmmmmm..... [Roll Eyes]

Oh yeah - how could I forget MMW's "Uninvisible"? I'll have to put that on later.

Was Dylan's "Love and Theft" from this year or 2001? I thought it was released 9/11. Nonetheless, another great CD.
