Top 15...I Just Couldn't Hold It To Ten

Well, it was hard to do and technically I had only one spot to fill in my search of this years top ten albums. I chose to bump The National down a few spots to free up 2 slots in the top ten and then realized that there have just been more than ten. I have never conformed before, why start now, so this is my offical Top 15 Albums of 2005:

(For samples of the previous albums in my original top 9 click here and like I said these are in no specific order, but just must haves of this year. So on to the second half of the list)

Publish My Love - Rogue Wave (Descended Like Vultures)
Grass - The Animal Collective (Feels)
He Lays the Reins - Iron and Wine/Calexico (In the Reins)
Crosses - Jose Gonzalez (Veneer)
Life on Mars - Seu Jorge (The Life Aquatic Studio Sessions)
Beautiful Boyz - CocoRosie (Noah's Ark)

bonus: Iron and Wine/Calexico cover VU (mp3) All Tomorrows Parties

And head over to So Much Silence to check out Iron and Wine's performance on NPR. Amazing. Thanks Kevin.

edit: He has also added Iron and Wine/Calexico. Get this while you can. Trust me.
