Best album of 2005 discussion

   Discussion: Best album of 1995 discussion
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 14 years, 8 months ago
Here is a list of 2005 Releases: WFUV Albums of 2005 I never know what was released this year without seeing it on a list.
Josh Woodward Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
Is any discussion necessary? The best album of 1995 was clearly Radiohead's "The Bends".
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
Wow, that is an epic mistake. That isn't a typo, its a flashback. Damn those chemicals at Fruvous shows.
caroline: tired. Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
See, in 1995, I was 4 years old... I don't quite recall the album releases of that year, as I didn't listen to much popular music. ;)
nate... Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
whereas I was a senior in high school. :D

scary.

caroline: tired. Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
that's because you're old, nate. :D
nate... Back · 14 years, 8 months ago

George E. Nowik Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
i was about to say that i was already in college (the first time around) but then nate deflected gloriously.

good form, mon frere.

nate... Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
Where were you the SECOND time 1995 came around?

;D
Talcott Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
Oh crap, it's a timequake!
caroline: tired. Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
no, there's a difference. you're old, gordon's ancient. ;)
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
No, like the Dylan song I am Forever Young.

Remember youth is fleeting but immaturity lasts a lifetime.
caroline: tired. Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
Remember youth is fleeting but immaturity lasts a lifetime.

crap, i hope not. or else my generation is going to screw all you oldsters over. :P
dave "buh" Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
Forever Young was an Alphaville song.. Who's this Dylan guy?
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
No Alphaville is a Godard Film and Forever Young is not on the sound track.
A girl named Becca Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
Yeah, he is a creepy old man.
But you even make ME feel old - I teach kids older than you, yikes! That seriously makes me feel like an adult. Whoa.
nate... Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
oh shush, you. ;P

caroline: tired. Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
nah, you're not creepy, nate. just old. :)
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
And I was a teaching in college.
ChrisChin is Getting Old Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
I was a freshman/sophomore in college at the time. I have to think about what I listened to back then. Probably Nine Inch Nails, Pet Shop Boys, some Musicals and Erasure, to name a few.
goovie is married! Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
it's funny--i think this is the first year that i've downloaded more original songs than i've bought cds. so i'm looking at that list from fuv and thinking, "yeah, i dig all the songs i have from that cd...yeah, i dig all the songs i have from that cd, too..." and on and on for about 3/4 of the list. but i don't feel like i can really vote for any of them, because i don't have full albums.
Mamalissa! · 14 years, 8 months ago
I own exactly one of those albums. Thus, my favorite new album for 2005 is Sixty-Six Steps, by Leo Kottke and Mike Gordon.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
Nepotism!
Mamalissa! Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
Yepotism!
Brian Bernardini · 14 years, 8 months ago
Well, they left out Porcupine Tree's "Deadwing", easily one of the top releases this year (in my humble opinion). The Nickel Creek album on there is also quite good.

The best album on that whole list, though, has to be Jim Boggia's "Safe In Sound". The man is an absolute genius, and puts on the best one-man acoustic shows I have ever seen. If you ever get a chance to see him, DO NOT MISS IT. (He plays primarily in the Philadelphia area, although he's been known to go up and down the East Coast. I believe he also opened a bunch of Michelle Branch shows out west.)

Here are the results of the WFUV Listener's Poll

Anyone want to link to any other polls?
nate... Back · 14 years, 7 months ago
That poll can be immediately discounted due to springsteen being even on it... let alone number 1.

Josh Woodward Back · 14 years, 7 months ago
That poll can be immediately discounted due to Sufjan Stevens not even making the top 50, especially given their acoustic slant. That's nothing short of obscene.
goovie is married! Back · 14 years, 7 months ago
dude, i didn't even notice that. what the hell?
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 14 years, 7 months ago
You are permenently banned from entering New Jersey.
nate... Back · 14 years, 7 months ago
WOHOO!

:D
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 14 years, 7 months ago
Just for that Fruvous is going to have their big comeback concert at Appel Farm!
caroline: tired. Back · 14 years, 7 months ago
It's not complete yet, but XPN's Top 50 list, from #50-23, is here.

I actually own some of them, go me.
goovie is married! Back · 14 years, 7 months ago
since i was kind of queen of itunes this year, i'm more interested in the results of the best 90 songs poll.

i really wish "echoes" hadn't been dar's single. it's so...simplistic. which. i guess. is probably why it was picked as the single. but still. it definitely doesn't deserve to be called the second-best song of the year.

"catch my disease," tho? easily the best single of the year. oh, ben lee. clearly breaking up with claire danes and discovering religion is the way to go.

"landed" by ben folds, "mushaboom" by feist, "girl" by beck, doughty's "looking at the world from the bottom of a well," all those decemberists songs, "use it" by the new pornographers, "when in rome by nickel creek"...they're all on my personal 2005 mix as well. man, there were a lot of good songs this year.
Songbill Back · 14 years, 7 months ago
I heard "Echoes" on the radio here one morning and it sounded so much like ... a hit .... that I was really nervous that we'd start hearing Dar on adult contemporary stations around the clock-- kind of like Shawn Colvin with "Sonny Came Home." It probably would have happened by now, so I'm relieved.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 14 years, 7 months ago
I listen to XPN whenever I drive south on 95. It shares the same format as FUV but I'm always surprised at how difference the mix in. There are a few Philadelphians that are FUV members; They listen online. They usually volunteer how they like the FUV mix better. I'm sure there are New Yorkers that do the same thing in reverse.
caroline: tired. Back · 14 years, 7 months ago
See.... that has most of the same albums as the XPN Top 50, but some of them have dramatically different places. It's interesting to compare.
Lux Fruthor · 14 years, 7 months ago
I have just a couple of things from that FUV list, and have even worked with an artist or two on it over the last year or so (does doing the lights for the main act when one of them opened for him but I didn't work on that count? --- I miss The Bottom Line) Anyhow, to return to the subject line I opened (and opined) with, Al Stewart came out with a much awaited new release this year, called A Beach Full of Shells. It's going to be considered by posterity to be one of his 5 best, I think. There are some real gems on it. It's on Appleseed Records. Give it a try.
