I know there's some active music listeners and I'd like to think we're a fairly diverse crowd in what we listen to...so let's hear it. What came out in 2005 that you like? Plug some albums and give a brief description.

I'll start.


Lightning Bolt - Hypermagic Mountain
This band is just two guys from my home state of Rhode Island. Just a bass and drum attack. There are some long songs, the recording quality is better than ever, and the musicianship really shines. If you get headaches easily, this is probably not for you. It may seem like just noise at first listen, but the raw, overdriven bass sounds and the thundering drums create some great melodies. Kicks the crap out of their last release, in my opinion.



Fantomas - Suspended Animation
Another Mike Patton project. This is some particularly freaky shit.
I did a review for this album for a site I write for that would explain it well.



That's all I have for now. Any other takers?

EDIT: this soundfile/sample doesn't actually showcase patton.. just the choir, biz markie doing beatbox and of course bjorkie poo.. the album is all acapella and patton helped a lot..

Lagwagon - Resolve ... Released Nov. 1 (TODAY!!!) and its a sick album..

NOFX - 7" of the month club
Not really an album, but it's basically a documentary of song making for NOFX... 2 new songs every month on a 7"... sadly, this had to be stopped due to financial problems...
