10 for the count...

I probably should have spent more time whittling this down, but in saving face --- since the folks at the Village Voice had to send me an email to remind me that I was late with my list --- I decided to make the best of it. Let me again reflect on the year in music --- bah, it was wack! Nothing really had me in awe or held my attention long enough. So this list was really hard, and probably not as well thought out as it should be. Perhaps I should have opted for just doing a singles countdown, or went with my heart like my boy Jeff. But anyway, here it is - without descriptions. But I will say that TV On The Radio is got damned excellent and Gwen Stefani is so hip-hop.

10 Amp Fiddler - Waltz of A Ghetto Fly (Pias America)
10 John Legend - Get Lifted (Sony)
10 Kanye West - The College Dropout (Roc-A-Fella)
10 Usher - Confessions (La Face)
10 Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand (Domino)
10 Prince - Musicology (Sony)
10 TV On The Radio - Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes (Touch And Go Records)
10 Ghostface - The Pretty Toney Album (Def Jam)
10 Gwen Stefani - Love, Angel, Music, Baby (Interscope)
10 Vybz Kartel - Up 2 Di Time (Greensleeves)
