How could you possibly keep your list to just 5? I'm having a hard time whittling it down to 20.

Because as much as I liked Beck's Modern Guilt, New York Dolls live album, The Black Crowes Warpaint, and the new Jonas Brothers... they just didn't stick around my player for months like those did. And everything else that was stuck didn't come out this year...

Ok, my top 10 (sorry, can't just pick 5...)

1. Kings Of Leon - Only By The Night
- Do I really need to explain why?

2. Nicole Atkins - Neptune City
- With Amy, Duffy & Adela ruling the charts, Nicole's album is the most original and most underestimated female debut of the year.

3. Ryan Adams - Cardinology
- Ryan's just Ryan. With good and average albums. This is a damn good one.
4. MGMT - Oracular Spectacular
- Bowie meets Floyd with a T-rx flavor in 2008.

5. Last Shadow Puppets - The Age Of The Understatement
- Arctic Monkey's Alex Turner goes Walker Bothers and pulls it off!

6. Conor Oberts - Conor Oberts
- Conor = Bright Eyes, Bright Eyes = Conor. And still a record under his own name has a little twist.

7. Buena Vista Social Club - Live At Carnegie Hall
- Recorded 10 years ago, but only released a few weeks ago. BVSC in their 'prime'.

8. Ting Tings - We Started Nothing
- Not the new White Stripes. Surprisingly catchy songs, both on album and on stage.

9. Keith Caputo - A Fondness For Hometown Scars
- Hopelessly romatic, victim of the world's pain. And occasionally, Keith rocks again too!

10. Raphael Saadig - The Way I See It
- Imagine an album with lost recordings of Marvin Gaye, The Delfonics, Otis Redding and The Stylistics. That's what this album sounds like.

Well, there you have it. Let's see what 2009 has in store for us (Can already tell you that the new Springsteen is pretty amazing)
