2005 to be best year for music in recent memory

That is, if all these awesome bands delivering albums (and this is just the first half of the year!) manage to do a good job of it:

Beck
The Decemberists - Picaresque
Underworld
Massive Attack
Outkast
Broken Social Scene - Windsurfing Nation (?)
The Flaming Lips - At War With The Mystics (best title ever)
Doves - Some Cities
Spoon
The Notwist
Caribou (used to be Manitoba)
Primal Scream
Sigur Ros

and those that I'm pretty but not super excited for... or just think will be of interested to others:
And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead
Tori Amos
Grandaddy
Idlewild (don't really know 'em, but I know people here dig 'em)
Coldplay
B.R.M.C.
New Order
Queens of the Stone Age
Oasis
Nine Inch Nails
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Bright Eyes
Hot Hot Heat

And that's not even counting for all the albums that haven't been announced yet or slipped under the radar, and the possibility of some great debuts (many of my fav albums this year are debuts..)

Shit indeed. You are right on both counts.

Easy to forget Trail of Dead because it leaked back in September lol. And people thought the U2 album was way early...

i'm looking forward to a bunch of those albums, as well as a few others. agnostic front, street dogs, and far from finished in particular.

I would LOVE a great new album so that I can see some of the songs live. I've only seen them once and I'd love to experience that again soon.

Speaking of M. Ward have you heard a compilation called The Late Great Daniel Johnston - Discovered Covered??? All kinds of bands are on this including The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, Death Cab For Cutie, TV On The Radio, Tom Waits, Eels etc. etc. including a gorgeous rendition of Daniel Johnston's "The Story Of An Artist" by none other that M. Ward!!!

Was that at Sarstock? I haven't ever seen them live. I was going to see 'em at lollapalooza this summer, and that was going to be completely amazing. but then it got cancelled. eeegads.

of course, it could be all those artistes decide to deliver the weakest album of their careers

fingers crossed, no.

i'll be spending loadsamoney next year, you can count on it.

I'd just like to add another little album to the list and confirm that it doesn't suck.. in the sweet debuts category...

Bloc Party - Silent Alarm
(the franz ferdinand of 2005 if they get good enough marketing, though maybe too dark for de mainstream)

the thing is, even if those bands deliver mediocre albums, they're still going to be a lot better than a lot of other stuff that's out there.
