- The Emancipation Of Mimi - Mariah Carey - Give me a fucking break. Is this one of the best of 2005?
- Chaos And Creation In The Backyard -Paul McCartney - Bob Dylan, Ray Charles, now McCartney. They have to nominate an old man to steal the award. Nevermind that the best years are behind them
- Love. Angel. Music. Baby. - Gwen Stefani - See Mariah Carey above
- How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb - U2 - Not even in U2's top 5 - barely in their top 10
- Late Registration - Kanye West - By far the best of this sorry lot
For note - I'll be watching Lost and then Veronica Mars. Thank god no one's afraid to program against the Grammys anymore.
