Here are my five favorite albums that came out between January 1st, 2005 and June 21st, 2005 (IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER).

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.
