Favorite Albums, Extended Remix

Not sure what activity here will be like for the rest of December. Work and holiday obligations loom at every turn these days. I am of course polishing my best-of-'05 list for both the City Paper and the Village Voice's Pazz and Jop deal. I'll probably wait to near the end of the month to publicly reveal my choices. Also, I actually have some movie-related topics I'd like to blog 'bout in the coming weeks. We'll see how that goes. For now, though, here is the latest version of my favorite-albums list, this time extended to 30 and in rough chronological order too!

I forgot you're a fellow lover of Crowded House's Together Alone. What a cool album that is. I would have never guessed they had it in them.
