10. Kanye West – My Twisted Dark Fantasy (yeah, I know.)
Best single: Avi Buffalo: What’s In It For
Guilty pleasure: Kanye West. The guy’s an idiot but I picked it up for $3.99 off Amazon and really enjoy it. HE SAMPLED 21ST CENTURY SCHIZOID MAN!
Most disappointing: Ryan Adams and The Cardinals III/IV – not bad, but nothing really impressive.
Reissue: Live At Leeds/Exile on Main Street (tie) I know I should say Springsteen but I haven’t picked it up yet.
