You had fucking Brian Wilson on your list. I don't care if Smile was released on an indie label. It's Brian Wilson.

Hey, he's his own man. Anyone that crazy has to be "indie" in some way.

Thanks for reminding me about My Morning Jacket, though. Their 2001 album At Dawn IS eligible, and I changed my list.

I actually had Smile in mind, but relented. It IS a great record.

I'd be more likely to disqualify it on the grounds that all the material was written like 35 years earlier, but whatever. It's as singular and unique a vision as anything else that year, this decade, etc.

I thought most Waits fans preferred Blood Money, but glad we're in agreement here.
