    3.Cat Power - 'The Greatest'
    4.Final Fantasy - 'He Poos Clouds'

    Hmmm... it's tricky this year. I believe there's been a lot of patchy, disappointing releases.

    My 5 best are (in no particular order):-

    1) The Trials of Occupanther - Midlake
    2) I Am Not Afraid of You - Yo La Tengo
    3) Alright - Lily Allen
    4) Corner of Miles and Gil - Shack
    5) Moo, Yo Bloody Choir - Augie March

    Disappointments of the year go on and on! The new Dylan (more of the same - the same could be said for Sparklehorse, Beck, Ed Harcourt, The Frames, Lambchop and others), Flaming Lips (too much going on, too harsh sounding)....

    Lots of good albums this year, I probably enjoyed these though more than most

    Band of Horses - Everything All The Time
    The Hidden Cameras - Awoo
    Jarvis Cocker - Jarvis
    Islands - Return to Sea
    Belle & Sebastian - The Life Pursuit


    Haven't had a chance to listen to The Crane Wife yet

    And what no Arctic Monkeys from anyone???
    and no Tapes n' Tapes or Clap Your Hands Say Yeah?
    or Yeahs Yeahs Yeahs?

    I think the Raconteurs- Broken Boy Soldiers merits a mention here.

    Speaking of Aussie bands, Mixta.... have you heard the new Augie March?

    I loved Lovers by Sleepy Jackson, but I've found Personality very difficult indeed.
