Further Seems Forever and The Early November should be on this list in my opinion. However, I haven't really been active in finding new music or bands I never listened to before in the past 2 years. I guess I've reached the age where I have enough bands I like and music to keep my occupied for a while. Fun, FSF, and TEN are on my top ten of the year. Overall, a solid list.
also i always get some itunes casheesh, and use these lists to figure out what i want. this year, based on her amazing writing and enthusiasm, i went with two of kelly doherty's faves: modern baseball and annabel.
you chose wisely with that modern baseball album. SO GOOD.
however, I haven't really listened to many of these albums AT ALL. saddens me a bit,
and then I realize, I seriously spent most of the year listening to older albums. tis a strange thing to realize. probably the only major exception was House of Heroes. sad, but very understandable, for them to not make the list
