!!! so fucking beautiful! Why don't more people like Under The Iron Sea? Why don't more people recognize Keane? Easily the band of the year for me!

It's the band at their most political, and arguably best. Worldwide Suicide gets my vote for most visceral song of the year.

Stadium Arcadium - Red Hot Chili Peppers

While some say this collection is bloated, there's something very special, unrefined, and organic that carries across these two CDs. Along with some trademark funk, there's also a warmth to many of the songs, like Hard to Concentrate and Snow (Hey Oh). It's certifiable proof that this is a band with true musical range.

The Eraser - Thom Yorke

Murky, desolate, and completely moving. The perfect soundtrack to a rainy day and a world gone mad. Harrowdown Hill is a beautifully haunting standout.

I love your descriptions and wholeheartedly agree with all 3!

That brings us to my Top 5...

1. Pearl Jam - Pearl Jam

2. Under The Iron Sea - Keane

3. Eyes Open - Snow Patrol

4. Stadium Arcadium - Red Hot Chili Peppers

5. Black Holes & Revelations - Muse / The Eraser - Thom Yorke.. tie.

The Killers just missed out.

Such a great year for music!

Off the top of my head, here's a Top Ten:

10. Beck - The Information
9. The Beatles - Love
8. The Raconteurs - Broken Boy Soliders
7. Ray LaMontagne - Till The Sun Turns Black
6. The Killers - Sam's Town
5. Damien Rice - 9
4. The Flaming Lips - At War With The Mystics
3. Thom Yorke - The Eraser
2. Secret Machines - Ten Silver Drops
1. The Decemberists - The Crane Wife

I can do a write-up if need be. Not right now since I'm in the midst of a study break and should get back to reading my ass-tronomy book shortly.

No one's mentioned Begin to Hope by Regina Spektor. Although it's her fourth album, it's sort of been a breakout album for her and even had some hype on VH1 as one of their "you oughta know" artists or whatever. It's got a bigger budget (=more production) than some of her earlier stuff, but it's still got the same quirky style and of course incredible piano (she's classically trained). She has a naturally beautiful voice, but the unique ways she uses it really set her apart. Her songs go from funny to strange to cute to devastating, effortlessly.

I admit to not owning that many releases from this year, but this is definitely my favorite I've heard and I highly reccomend it. I've seen it at most CD stores.

others I liked:
Band of Horses- Everything All the Time
Islands- Return to the Sea

I really should get the Decemberists album, shouldn't I?

Okay, I've been occupied writing papers lately, and since we're getting closer to the end of the year, I thought I'd at least list my top ten albums of this year... I'll post more about WHY they are my top ten when I get the chance These are the albums that I've found myself listening to the most and any album that makes me want to listen on repeat for hours counts as a "best" for me

(These are in no particular order)

Muse - Black Holes & Revelations
Jet - Shine On
Keane - Under the Iron Sea
The Secret Machines - Ten Silver Drops
Ratatat - Classics
Kasabian - Empire
Hot Chip - The Warning
Editors - The Back Room (okay, it did come out in 2006 in the US!)
Embrace - This New Day
Dirty Pretty Things - Waterloo to Anywhere

That's high praise! I really love Is It Any Wonder, but I haven't heard very much of the album at all. I should give it a listen.

With regards to Muse, I wish I liked them more. Maybe I'm musically delayed.
