Where are you seeing 'em? I'll be at the Denver shows, Jan 12-13.
I'll be attending the Dec. 29th show at The Fillmore in SF.

Under The Iron Sea - Keane
(Quite simply, Keane are crafting the best pop songs to be heard in a long time. Chaplin's voice is positively breathtaking, particularly when backed by such contemporary and energetic music. Deserve more credit than they recieve)

The Eraser - Thommy Yorke
(If this were an official Radiohead album, I'd rank it better than all other albums except Kid A and OK COmputer. Some of these songs were reportedly floating around during Radiohead-proper studio sessions, and it is a shame that Cymbal Rush, Harrowdown Hill and The Clock never made it onto a Radiohead LP. That said, a cohesive and stunning collection of songs.)

Black Fingernails Red Wine - Eskimo Joe
( These Aussie blokes are awesome. Their past 2 albums were very cool indeed, and when Aussie rock is in such a crippling state at the moment, these guys are aptly filling in the huge void left by Motor Ace and the Oils. All tracks are mesmerising in their quality, and all have a real feel good factor. The title track was a rare, deserved success on the single chart.)

That Mark Knopfler & Emmylou Harris album is pretty ace as well.

Then there's Tom Petty.

In no particular order after the first one:

1. Muse - Black Holes & Revelations
2. Cat Power - The Greatest
3. Dresden Dolls - Yes, Virginia
4. Jenny Lewis & The Watson Twins - Rabbit Fur Coat
5. Sonic Youth - Rather Ripped
6. Augie March - Moo, You Bloody Choir
7. Lily Allen - Alright, Still
8. David Gilmour - On the Island
9. Ground Components - An Eye for a Brow, A Tooth for a Pick
10. Joanna Newsom - Ys

This was a pretty slim year compared to the last one where I had maybe 20 albums to choose from.

Definitely, I love that CD. I need to take that one out again, over the summer I listened to it often.

oops, looks like i didn't really read the first post in the thread. to make an amends, here are some of my highly quotable thoughts on my number one choice:

"black holes + revelations sounds like what would happen if freddie mercury, john bonham, and liberace formed a zombie power trio. in short, the most stupidly awesome (or awesomely stupid) album imaginable. and that is meant as high praise. even kiss think these guys should tone it down."
