    Good call. In a similar vein, I'd also recommend Jack Johnson's "In Between Dreams", or at least the single "Breakdown".

    Yep, Jack Johnson has got a killer album. Death Cab for Cutie's "Plans" is pretty awesome too. Jason Mraz "Mr. A to Z" is also a pretty good album.

    Coming from a different perspective, don't hate on it..

    AZ - A.W.O.L
    Little Brother - The Minstrel Show
    The Game - The Documentary
    Kanye West - Late Registration
    Common - BE
    Beanie Sigel - The B Coming
    Coldplay - X&Y
    Tonedeff - Archetype
    Also every Papoose mixtape..

    Eh, everyone's entitled to their own opinion, right? I can't choose out of those favourites because I like them for different reasons, but they're the albums that this year have been played over and over, and will continue to be.

    CSaunders, I went to see Bright Eyes during their Digital Ash tour. It was dissapointing to say the least. I my opinion he should stick with what he does best, even though there's nothing wrong with a little experimenting (is that a word?).
    I went to see Ray Lamontagne in April this year. My favorite gig of the year so far, together with Springsteen in Rotterdam in June. Those 2 are closely followed by The Magic Numbers whom I went to last night.

    Also a great album, not sure if it was released this year:
    The National - Aligator

    And here's an album I just started listening to which is really great, it's from 2003 though:
    Sun Kil Moon - Ghosts of the Great Highway

    Yes, that Antony & The Johnsons album is very good, as is Arcade Fire - Funeral Plan
    I'd also like to add Jacksonville City Nights - Ryan Adams. It's a great album, just ask Danwin.

    It's all about the Bright Eyes this year for me. I enjoyed seeing the National's album mentioned earlier, it's criminally underrated.

    Just got Nine Black Alps - Everything Is, after hearing a song of theirs on Burnout Revenge (Shot Down) and then some racing program on ITV (Not Everyone).

    I am now their biggest fan - they sound like the new Foo Fighters to me, only the sound's a bit "harder". I demand to know of any other bands that sound REMOTELY like them.

    Re: Best albums of the year

    I just can't get into Anthony and the Johnsons, the lead singers voice does my head in.

    Death Cab for Cuties new album is very good, although I still prefer Transatlanticism. Nine Black Alps album is also very good, Cosmopolitan being my favourite track

    Chris, check out Reuben. They have a very similar style to Nine Black Alps. Their latest track is 'Keep it to Yourself'.

    Thomas any good French music this year????
    How is the new Francoise Breut album.
    I'm quite fond of French music: Gainsbarre, Dutronc, Charlelie Couture, Les Négresse Vertes, Stephane Eicher (Swiss actually) and Arno (he's Belgian).

    Re: Best albums of the year

    Well Joost, gotta say i agree with him on one point: the Gorillaz album is great...
    And besides the people i summed up are very famous in France (Famous in France, sounds like big in Belgium).
    And now for the Dutch speaking people: what you think about Raymond Van Het Groenewouds anti-American song??? You know that some ultra-rightist idiots (Vlaams Blok/Vlaams Belang) are accusing him of racism...can you imagine???
    As a matter of fact i'm gonna try to use football in order to do somethinh against the racism in Antwerp...next year there are election in Antwerp and we want to do something against racism in that city...we will start a massive football competition and hope that people of different cultures will understand each other through football and music (Tom Barman of dEUS has agreed to do a special concert against racism). From now on i will work on those two things and i'm quite excited about it..
