I like the A-Z thing but I didnt listen to enough in 2005 to make one. Here is a partial a-z list of mainstrean and indie that I liked from 2005.

Breakaway - Kelly Clarkson
Demon Days - Gorillaz
From Under the Corktree - Fall Out Boy
The Go! Team - Thunder Lightning Stike
Illinois - Sufjan Stevens
LCD Soundsystem - LCD Soundsystem
Plans - Death Cab for Cutie
Set Yourself on Fire - Stars
Twin Cinema - The New Pornographers
You Could Have It So Much Better - Franz Ferdinand
Z - My Morning Jacket

Stuff everyone liked and I disliked...
Clap your hands say yeah - CYHSY
EP - Fiery Furnaces

Note: I suck at music

One More "indie" release to throw into the fray at either the E or B spot is Lou Barlow's Emoh. Really good folky singer- songwriter type stuff. Some of the best work Lou has done in ages, imho.

Yeah, the "WTF SUPER-MAINSTREAM EDITION" consists solely of albums and artists lodged firmly in the Top 200 selling albums of 2005. I think I own 3 or 4 of them.

A LOT of those are 2004. I've heard 17 of them, and most weren't that great. Of those that were:

American Idiot - 2004. It'd make the list from that year though.

Encore - 2004. Too many missteps to make a list, but it some tracks were solid.

The Documentary - 2005. I almost put this on instead of The Go! Team. It's solid (and 50's better on this than he is on his own album)

In Between Dreams - Reviewed this, and actually liked it a lot. JJ is enjoyable to listen to. That said, the clog at S meant Sufjan took over the I spot, since that was pretty empty.

Hot Fuss - 2004. And weren't The Killers considered "indie" until "Mr. Brightside" hit the Top 40 radio? I'm not sure, I didn't follow them too closely.

X & Y - Probably could put this on my list in the X spot, although as with U2, not sure it really deserves it. I thought it was a very disappointing effort, and I hear Coldplay has as much as admitted that pressure to put out albums has diluted their work.

Lastly, mainstream country sucks more ass than mainstream pop and rock. :-D

Yes, Killers was 2004 and in early 2004 they were Indie and Hipster and all things made fun of...great album however you want to label it.

is MIA somebody different from M.I.A - 'cause listing that [censored] on any list would make me mad.

You could say "Murs and Slug Present Felt 2" and it would be a better option for both M and F.

I clearly need to start listening to more internet alternative radio. How I could have missed a band that Bowie and Chris Martin were arguing over who discovered them is beyond me. (Arcade Fire)

Yeah, I should probably get Felt on there, but I already had Atmosphere on there. And I really liked Fatlip's album.

And stop hating on M.I.A. [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Good album (better than other slight missteps like Beck's Guero or Franz Ferdinand's You Could Have It So Much Better)... I could probably put it at G instead of Go! Team, I suppose.

Bump because CMI hasn't posted his list yet, goddamn slacker.
