Best CDs of 2005
February 3, 2006 — 12:23 am

I haven’t posted any best-of lists since early 2004, with 25 movies and 25 CDs from 2003 to praise. One of these days I’ll have to go back and figure out what I liked best from 2004, but for now I may as well get started on 2005. So, with no further ado, here are my favorite CDs of 2005:
