This is completely unscientific. About 1/3 of the entries for "best album of the year-so-far" came from people entering to win tickets to Jamie Lidell at Irving Plaza tonight. Another third came from those seeking a copy of Jenny Lewis on DVD, and the final third were semi-random people asked directly, via email, by me last night.

And the people's choice award for best album goes to....

1st place: TV on the Radio - Return To Cookie Mountain

2nd place: M Ward - Post War

3rd place (a tie): Cat Power - The Greatest & The Rapture - Pieces of People We Love

Amazingly, 106 different albums were named. Destroyer, Liars, Sunset Rubdown, Beirut, and Girl Talk tied for fourth.
