best of 2005

There aren't many days left in 2005 and it seemed to me it was time for the list. This isn't the sort of thing you can procrastinate on ... so I devoted many hours of thinking to this today and arrived at my conclusions (the studying for finals can go on hold for a bit, it's not like I haven't started or anything). There are quite a few albums that did not make the cut and those that did I absolutely adore. And I'm going to keep reminding you about the winter mix(es).

If you're going to hotlink files from other music blogs you may want to ask if they allow you to, since that Saxon Shore link isn't working.

Maybe you could go and get some hosting space of your own with some of that money you are making with those insound and amazon links.

sorry about the hotlink issue. it's been changed.

the insound/amazon links are just to encourage people to buy the cd instead of downloading it.

i make no money off of this blog and i never plan to. when i want to upload i use megaupload.

sorry again
