What's up LiveJournal 2006? I haven't updated in a hundred years and LiveJournal made me change my password because it was too easy for robots to guess.

So I guess I should say a few words about 2005. Pretty much, 2005 completely sucked for music and is the worst year since I started caring. There were a few things that I completely loved, but for the most part it was the year that nobody cared to do anything good and people that were great a few years ago dropped bombs. Nevertheless, here is my list of favorites from 2005:

1. Sufjan Stevens - Illinois
2. eels - Blinking Lights and Other Revelations
