hmm, I like your list Wanderer

I'd add

Midnight Oil - Capricornia
You Am I - Deliverance (never been a fan of em but this is a fun record)

I agree there shouldn't be any best ofs/compilations included but I'm bucking that theory slightly by throwing in:

The Royal Tennenbaums - Soundtrack (it was released in late 2001 in the States I think but we didnt get it till 2002)

okay people....the About a Boy soundtrack is probably the worse BDB release to date

why not say his new album which has no shitty filler music?

take out Silent Sigh, Something to Talk about, a couple others and your left with a very substandard BD album relative to his other work

Good call on the Boards of Canada Salome!! I forgot all about that and one of mine should be substituted for it.

I've heard a few of the songs...is it as good as Music has the right to children?

disagree there, maybe because "Something to Talk About,"
"River, Sea, Ocean," "A Minor Incident," "Silent Sigh" and "Walking Out of Stride" are among my favorite songs of the year and I rate them very highly, too early for me really to judge Fish yet, not sure I'm crazy about it honestly, but as far as the purpose of About a Boy -- to be a soundtrack, it's perfect in conjunction with the movie in that respect

not sure about Pearl Jam yet either, they could move into the list at some point

Almost every list has included A Rush of Blood to the Head. We must have very good taste.

Also, I think A New Day at Midnight (David Gray) is growing on me and I feel a bit bad that I didn't put it in my top 7.

Also, White Blood Cells was definitely released in 2001 and I think Room for Squares was too. That's good, but I'm going back through a big John Mayer phase at the moment.

I prefer "Music has the right ..." but it's still a very good album

Bruce Springsteen is amongst the top 7. No question about that one. As for the rest, I can't say I've heard a lot of the ones mentioned (Coldplay, Tori Amos, et al). Of the ones I've heard at several tracks, here are my picks:

1) Springsteen: "The Rising". "Waiting On A Sunny Day" is was the most cheerful songs I've ever heard him perform.

2) No Doubt: "Rock Steady". I guess it was released a few weeks before the beginning of 2002, but I'll throw it in.

3) Santana: "Shaman". This is because I haven't heard much else. Do the math!

4) Eminem: "The Eminem Show". The dude had a way with words and makes moving music.

5) U2: GH 1990-2000.

6) Rolling Stones: Forty Licks

7) Elton John: GH 1970-2002.

I also forgot Jon Spencer Blues Explosion's Plastic Fang as #5

The top seven albums of 2002 are as follows:

1. Coldplay - A rush of blood to the head
2. Nick Cave etc - And no more shall we part (actually it's probably from 2001 but I don't care, I heard it this year).
3. Beck - Seachange
4. Augie March - Strange Bird (haven't heard all of it, I just know it will belong on this list).
5. Neil Diamond - I killed a drifter to get an erection
6. Absolutely anything from the Delgadoes that may have emerged this year.
7. There is no number seven.

The worst albums and/or songs of 2002:

U2 best of 1990-2000 - enjoyable random collection of songs for people who don't really like U2. Gets an extra star for the new songs.
Absolutely anything from You Am I, The Whitlams or Grinspoon.
A certain someone who released 'Cock Mobster' (yeah, like Rock Lobster har har) on Australian radio JJJ.

Personal picks:
That song with the guy from Placebo (Alpine?)
That song from Sleater-Kinney (Oh?)
Machine Gun Fellatio

The Rising - Bruce Springsteen
The Last Broadcast - Doves
A Rush of Blood to the Head - Coldplay
Best of 1990-2000 - U2
Best of Sting and the Police

Yikes, I think those are the only new albums I bought this year - I bought a lot of CDs, but it was mostly older stuff. Actually there were quite a few albums released this year that I'm interested in buying, but I've been trying very hard not to go completely crazy when I visit the record store.
