    Are we talking in a Grammy sense or personal sense?

    Grammy = Sting "Sacred Love" I don't know if Christina's is eligible, but possibly hers too

    Personal (cds that have rarely left my player this year for longer than a couple weeks)
    -Daniel Bedingfield "Gotta Get Thru This"
    -Christina Aguilera "Stripped"
    -Common Rotation "The Big Fear"
    -Limp Bizkit "Results May Vary"
    and now that I have it.. Sting "Sacred Love"

    I'm a sucker for the songs on Vehicles and Animals by Athlete and Warp records strikes again with Haha sound by Broadcast.

    Top reissues are Tin Drum by Japan Marquee Moon by Television and The Deluxe Edition of Bad girls by Donna Summer with all the 12" versions of the singles on Disc 2. The 17 minute version of McArthur Park is worth the money on its own.

    Nice call...I just picked this up last week. You can never have too many versions of "I Feel Love"...The Moroder stuff just kills.

    I'm completely confused by this question. Are you saying you think that a Grammy nomination and/or award is a sort of recognition for albums that go above and beyond and actually matter and all that??

    THE MARS VOLTA: DE-LOUSED IN THE COMATORIUM... best cd i've heard this year. Just saw these cats play in Saint Louis @ Mississippi Nights. Great show. If they're in your area, check them out... the CD is only ten bucks at Best Buy. It's like nothing I've ever heard.

    The three best IMO:

    A Perfect Circle - Thirteenth Step
    Massive Attack - 100th Window
    Outkast - The Love Below (I don't even listen to Speakerboxxx because Andre's CD is so amazing).

    Oakland, damn straig
    I’m usually a good six to eight months behind, so I haven’t heard all the new records I’d like to, like the new Outkast, White Stripes, the Wrens, British Sea Power, Cody Chestnutt, The Black Keys, Beulah — let’s just say lots.

    But of the few I have heard here’s my picks so far, in rough order:

    Super Furry Animals: Phantom Power
    Pernice Brothers: Yours, Mine and Ours
    Calexico: Feast of Wire
    Fruit Bats: Mouthfuls
    Ted Leo: Hearts of Oak

    Fountains of Wayne wouldn’t make it, actually. Although I do love the video for Stacy’s Mom. Is that a shout out to Ric Ocasek in that video? There’s a shot of a license plate that says “I Love Ric.”

    Warren Zevon -- The Wind
    Might be because he died so soon after this CD came out, but I find the whole thing chilling. Also a testament to a brilliant, respected artist that so many "friends" helped him get this disc out.

    Opeth -- Damnation
    What other death metal band has released an album of (extremely well-played) acoustic ballads and dirges? Opening song "Windowpane" is one of the best songs I've heard in the last few years.

    Superjoint Ritual -- A Lethal Dose of American Hatred
    Thrash the way it should be. SO much better than PanterA, so thanks for going in this direction, Phil.

    AFI -- Sing the Sorrow
    I really wanted to dislike this album, because I'm one of the people who started losing interest in these guys the more they sounded like The Misfits. But then I remembered, wait, I loved the Misfits. Anyway, this album's all over the place style-wise, and the music and Davey Havok's vox are top-notch. Then my wife dragged me to see them (and a bunch of other bands including Foo Fighters, Deftones, and the WAYYYYYYY overrated White Stripes) at a radio station festival this year, and AFI stole the show.

    Anthrax -- We've Come for You All
    Best record these mooks have released since John Bush became singer well over a decade ago.

    OSI -- Office of Strategic Influence
    OSI is a "supergroup" built around rock's premier drummer, "Iron" Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater, and also featuring Steven Wilson (of Porcupine Tree and No-Man and producer of recent Opeth discs), and some other prog-type dudes. Styles are all over the place, it's not all prog, but most is interesting. Would LOVE to see this live.
