There are lots of runner-ups, but I’ll save them for another day. Sometimes I get confused about release dates because of where the album first came out. Like is Feist this year or last year? What about Annie? And of course I still have a stack of 2005 albums on my to-listen-to list.

Put your best-of list, hate-mail, and what-not in the comments.
(and just for the record, I actually wrote this post yesterday… :-)… PITCHFORK GIVES CYHSY a 9.0 )
