Hmmm.

1) Icky Thump = White Stripes
2) Across the Universe = movie soundtrack/various artists
3) Twelve = Patti Smith
4) All that keeps us from giving up = Get Well Soon (sadly only four tracks long at iTunes)
5) Raising Sand = Alison Krauss/Robert Plant

Fave just 'discovered' artist is Chuck Prophet.
He has a 2007 release (Soap and Water) which is fine. But I think the older, "Homemade Blood" is better.

3. Book of Longing - Philip Glass/Leonard Cohen
2. River: The Joni Letters - Herbie Hancock

An overall disappointing year for new releases, at least to these ears; but here are my 5 favs of those which I've heard:

Nellie McKay - Obligatory Villagers
John Butler Trio - Grand National
Tori Zmos American Doll Posse
John Doe - A Year in the Wilderness
Sophie Ellis-Bextor - Trip the Light Fantastic
