·

A 'Best Albums of 2005' snapshot. There are definitely plenty that got missed out, and I'm still discovering lots more from other people's lists. The ones with stars are the ones that seem the most important, but that's mostly because people have been talking about them a lot so they're more memorable.

Anyway...
