    Utterly subjective, of course, but for me its probably A Girl Called Eddy and her self-titled album. A bit like Nico meets Leonard Cohen.

    Which I like.

    I'm liking Audioslave's "Out of Exile".
  3. Eels - Blinking Lights and other revelations...a work of absolute genius!

    By a long margin, it's In the Heart of the Moon by Ali Farke Touré and Tioumani Diabate.
    Honourable mention in second place to Mighty Re-arranger by Robert Plant.

    Either Sufjan Stevens "Illinoise" or Fiery Furnaces "EP". Too close to call.

    "The Woods" by Sleater-Kinney, despite being recorded using 2 tin cans and a length of string. Also the best band I've seen this year.

    "Cuts Across The Land" by The Duke Spirit trails in second. Makes me feel dirty just listening to it.

    For me, Kaiser Chiefs - in 'Employment' ... vinyl worth getting as well as 'box' SE version. Nice fun artwork/fun songs based on lots of the good old ones.

    Most stimulating newer release I've heard for many years.

    FB - The Super Furries are live on Mark Radcliffe Radio 2 on Thursday . My fave album to date is by fellow Welsh Warblers - Soft Hearted Scientists - Uncanny Tales From Everyday Undergrowth.

    Best discovery is Ian Moore's August 2004 release, titled Luminaria. Not quite up to the standard of his previous album ('And All The Colors', which I may have mentioned, is my favorite album ever); this newer one is merely excellent. He's completely shed the 'guitar god' image, but his 'songwriting god' aura is coming along nicely.

    Another vote for Sufjan Stevens, Illinois - just sees off Six Organs of Admittance: School of the Flower

    Very few runners up: Iron and Wine /Calexico: In The Reins, Teenage Fanclub: Man Made, the latest Masada 50th Birthday release ( I think its from this year)
    Must get that ROVA record Ian is raving about.
    Not one of the richer years, thus far.
