Re: favorite albums of the year

I like the new Satyricon album, that Knife record and the christmas collection from Sufjan Stevens.

Re: favorite albums of the year

to be honest, i don't actually own many albums released this year. i don't think my CD collection is complete enough to be worrying about hearing ALL the new stuff. *sigh* i'll catch up one day. anyway, the albums from this year i do have, i really like. junior boys & peter bjorn & john. they're both awesome. however, i intend to buy a few more. my wonderful girlfriend gave me a $100 gift voucher at jb hi-fi so hot chip isn't far away haha :D

Re: favorite albums of the year

1.The Strokes - First Impressions Of Earth
2.Scott Walker - The Drift
