    Consider me unlazy enough.

    Well, as this year is winding down...i figure it's time to go ahead ans start the nominations process.

    We have over a month to figure out how this is actually going to work out...but for now everyone can just post what they feel, and we (meaning...I) will jsut sift throught the junk later. OR just re-post it. Whatev.

    Try not to make more than 3 nominations

    In any 3:

    Electrelane - The Power Out
    Of Montreal - Satanic Panic In The Attic
    Animal Collective - Sung Tongs

    have at it.

    2nd on Satanic Panic.

    Franz Ferdinand /obvious
    Killers -- Hot Fuss
    Wilco -- A Ghost Is Born -- even though every music critic on the planet is their bitch, it's still great.
    Secret Machines -- Now Here Is Nowhere

    Whoops, that's five. Oh well.

    There are some things I've bought recently that I haven't listened to yet (Ted Leo, The Dears) and things that have been Gmailed to me that I haven't even sampled (Elliott Smith, The Arcade Fire, Ambulance Ltd) and things that I will eventually buy but just haven't (Clinic, Luna, Brian Wilson's Smile). But I'll get around to all of those before the end of the year, I'm sure.

    I would have also said Basement Jaxx- Kish Kash but I just looked up the release date and saw that it was October 2003. I thought it was early 2004. Oh well.

    I haven't seen this mentioned. It may not be the best of the year, but it will certainly make my top 5:

    Wilco - A Ghost is Born
    Youssou N'Dour - Egypt
    Tomasz Stanko Quartet - Suspended Night

    I'm a huge Elliott Smith fan and thought about nominating "From a Basement on the Hill", but I'm still getting over the shock of how much I dislike it (well, except for "Fond Farewell").
