There are some good albums we've seen nowhere else like Peter Von Poehl, Mojave 3 or El Perro Del Mar.
MagicRPM is a french magazine and I think this list is far better than the Inrockuptibles one (the other french magazine).
Does anyone have Magic's end of 2005 list?
The only thing I remember about Magic's 2005 EOY list is the name of the #1 : the irish band HAL.
I held the magazine in my hand last year and quickly read it at the station but I didn't buy it...
Don't worry Henrik, I'm going to look for it !
hi, I've emailed the boss of this newspaper and he should give the 2005 top album list to me next week.
Can you still buy a one year old mag?
Yes it's possible.
I was used to buying it during many years, but now Magic! has changed and the price has very much increased.
But if Fabien can have the 2005 list posted by the magazine's director it's all cool !
Thanks to Christophe Basterra, magazine's director, here is the list of Magic favorite albums for 2005 !
