I'd want to see respect given also to:
  • Hard Fi - 'Tied Up Too Tight'
  • The Tears - 'Refugees'
  • Hal - 'Play the Hits'
  • Jake Benilov - 'Russia's Cold'
  • Gorillaz - 'Feel Good Inc.'
  • Ben Folds - 'Landed'
  • The Futureheads - 'Hounds of Love'
  • Tony Rudd - 'Machadaynu'
  • The Mules - 'Redeemer'
Still can't help the feeling it's been a slim year. Anything to add?

It's clearly a lean year when a Benilov track gets a shoutout. But I agree - it's been a disappointing year both musically and filmically.
