Some Cities, very much so. But I kind of wasn't expecting it to be as good as Lost Souls, which is almost perfect to me.

I only bought two other albums, In Your Honour (which was absolutely terrible, huge disappointment for me) and Body of Song by Bob Mould, which I wasn't expecting much of, and I didn't get much from. However, the first song on the album, "Circles" is just awesome, a damn fine rock song.

Ditto here also.

Don't Believe the Truth - Oasis
It was a good album but it didn't meet my expectations.

Future Embrace - Billy Corgan
This album was not good. Plain and simple it was a big dissapointment for me.

Don't ever subject your poor ears to it. Ever. Listening to X&Y is the equivalent of sticking your head into an iron maiden.

Ditto. I mean, it wasn't a bad album, just in comparison with What's The Story or Definitely Maybe it's a bit dull.

Coldplay - X&Y
Yeah, it's all pretty and lush and super-epic, shame they forgot to write any interesting or memorable songs while they were at it.

Garbage - Bleed Like Me
I will always love Shirley, but perhaps it's time for her to go solo.

Robbie Williams - Intensive Care
Not that his previous albums weren't patchy, but he always had some stellar pop songs. Not anymore, alas.

Billy Corgan's album has 2 great songs on it - the rest are mediocre at best. Broken Social Scene's album stinks - it's way too noisy and full of nonsense - no real songs. As far as The Mars Volta goes...LOVE IT!!! I know, it's true about the song lengths but what the heck there's some brilliant stuff happening within these "songs". All in all 2005 wasn't the greatest year for music - sorta like 1985 and 1995. It must be a mid-decade thing.

I would say it's X&Y. There was so much hype around this, and all the critics thought it was brilliant.

I now know never to listen to critics, or to Coldplay!

I"'l pick on you because I respect your taste in music quite a lot.

Wolf Parade = great. i heard them before the hype so maybe that helped one of my top 5 of the year i think.

Clap Your Hands.. can't stand the guy's voice.. otherwise they would be good. It's grown on me a bit. I don't usually think of debuts as disappointing, though.

Franz = pretty good i think, but maybe a little disappointing, i'm not sure.

Bright Eyes = hell no. I'm Wide Awake It's Morning is daaaamn good. the digital ashes one is less good, though.

Royksopp = a bit. but.. i really really like the new album now. Might have to do with seeing them live and being completely blown away but there's some killer tracks on there.

I have to disagree with you here. I think their album is very good. Or rather, excellent. Catchy, short, to the point and bursting with ideas. Granted, there are a few tracks on it that still don't grab me fully, but there's enough to blow me off my socks.
And they were brilliant live last night!

As for X&Y, it was part of the audio selection on my flights to and from Boston, so I listened to the full album a couple of times. It's indeed a bit too bland for my tastes. There are some good songs on it though (as derivative as it might be, Speed Of Sound is a nice song and Talk is sounding better with each listen). Still, not enought highlights for me.
At the release of the record I saw one review which described the album accurately. It isn't an OK Computer (what many were expecting and what the hype reviews were describing it was) but it isn't a Be Here Now either (completely over-hyped turd). X&Y is just another Coldplay album.
