good to see Steve Earl in there
Solomon Burke should have been higher on that list
the rest sort of bores me

I'm surprised Eminem isn't on there...

As for what is there.... I agree with it, but I don't know anything about Steve Earle and Solomon Burke...and I haven't heard the whole Norah Jones CD. But everything else is a winner to me

I feel bad ranking things, though

Well, they got #1 right! Coldplay had by far the best album of the year! Great show as well!

Of that list I only have Solomon Burke and Bruce Springsteen and I agree they should be on that list. Solomon Burke maybe should be even higher, it's a better album than The Rising, IMO. As for Coldplay, I do want to buy that album as the 2 singles off it sound great (and I have the track Amsterdam on some sampler).
Those year-end list are always a bit arbitrarily. At least they didn't include Justin Timberlake so it isn't all that bad.

C ya!
