10 for '05: The Pazz N' Jop Edition

Every year the Village Voice asks music writers, critics, hopefuls, to vote for their top 10 albums of the year. Here's mine:


Your Pazz & Jop albums ballot was submitted as follows:

1. Bloc Party - Silent Alarm - Vice (10)
2. Common - Be - Geffen (10)
3. M.I.A. - Arular - XL (10)
4. Damian Marley - Welcome To Jamrock - Universal (10)
5. The Game - The Documentary - Aftermath (10)
6. Young Jeezy - Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101 - Def Jam (10)
7. Mariah Carey - The Emancipation of Mimi - Island (10)
8. Mary J. Blige - The Breakthrough - Geffen (10)
9. Gorillaz - Demon Days - Virgin (10)
10. LCD Soundsystem - LCD Soundsystem - Capitol (10)

* I realize that I should have held off on Mary J. until 2006 b/c that's when the album will have it's largest impact.

Now this makes me want to dig up the ballots I entered in previous years.
