New music kinda sux

I just went through a list of over 12,000 albums that were added to Rhapsody in 2005 so I could submit my "Best of 2005". It took forever and I just barely squeaked out 15 out of those 12,000 that were worthy of the list. This wasn't me wasting time, by the way. It was for work. Anyway, here's what I came up with:

1. Groovie Ghoulies - Monster Party
2. Bloc Party - Silent Alarm
3. OK Go - Oh No
4. Madness - Best of / 20th Century
5. The Epoxies - Stop the Future
6. Dane Cook - Retaliation
7. Richard Cheese - Aperitif for Destruction
8. Morrissey - Live @ Earls Court
9. The White Stripes - Get Behind Me Satan
10. Weezer - Make Believe
11. Elvis Costello - The Delivery Man
12. 7 Seconds - Take It Back, Take It On, Take It Over
13. Depeche Mode - Playing the Angel
14. Hot Hot Heat - Elevator
15. Neil Diamond - 12 Songs.

I make no apologies for these choices, so don't hassle me.

though i disagree with, well, all of your list, i do have to agree that 2005 has been a bit light with truly amazing albums. i'm starting to contemplate my list (while still acquiring those i haven't heard yet) and nothing is jumping out as can't-miss top 5 material so far.

yeah... i wouldn't have expected you to agree with any of it, and i'm questioning the order of it myself (although not the picks.. i thought about only submitting ten, but the request was for 15). someone should call up VH-1 and tell them to not bother working on "I Love The 2000s" any time soon.
