Since it’s the first of the year, and we here at Pajiba are hitting you with a heavy-dose of year-end lists and recaps (there’s more to come next week), and since you folks tend to go crazy about one of the topics we don’t cover here (JMW and Dan do a nice job of it on their blogs), we thought we’d let y’all come up with the top five albums of the year. Maybe I’ll tally up the mentions and run a piece on Monday featuring your choices, and you folks can collectively be our music critics.
I’ll start, though my music tastes tend to be a little antiquated, i.e. they were cool about five years ago, but now everything I love keeps showing up in “Grey’s Anatomy.” Damnit. If that isn’t a sign of being uncool, I don’t know what is.
1. Sky Blue Sky, Wilco
2. Easy Tiger, Ryan Adams.
3. All of a Sudden, I Miss Everyone, Explosions in the Sky
4. We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank, Modest Mouse
5. As I Am, Alicia Keys (I tried to resist. It’s futile)
Oh, and for the curious, the top three selling albums of the year were: Noel, Josh Groban; High School Musical Soundtrack; and Long Road Out of Eden, Eagles (they’re still around?).
