|29 - DINOSAUR JR - Beyond|
Wow Dinosaur JR`s first album since forever and I loved it almost instantly... I must admit I`d only heard a few tracks prior to this years release. Still I understand why people call J Mascis the Indie Rock Genius he is...The solos on this album are ridicilous!!
28 - JOEL PLASKETT - Ashtray Rock
When a JP record comes out you know its an exciting year of music..Not much gets released from the old Halifax/Murderecords scene any more....so when a new Plaskett album drops its as close to Thrush Hermit as your gonna get...and Ashtray Rock sounds like it could pass as a Hermit record...Lots of Rockin tunes...It had my vote for the Polaris Music Prize
27 - RUFUS WAINWRIGHT - Release The Stars
Another great year from another Canadian artist...Rufus not only released this record..... but then did a huge tour and just released a double record of his tribute performace to Judy Garland at Carnegie hall. Rufus kinda lost me during the want albums....but I`m glad he`s back.
