I’m not doing any numerical lists this year, probably because there weren’t that many albums I loved.
Best Album of the Year
Against Me! – New Wave
This choice is so obvious it hurts. The CD has lived in my car since September and is probably one of my favorite albums of all time at this point. I honestly think it has changed the way I listen to music and I cannot say enough good things about it. Every song whoops major ass. That’s how you make an album.
