Best of 2005 – The nominees

I still don’t know if I will make a Best Of 2005 list or even decide on my album of the year, but thought it would be a good start to make up the list of nominees. Basically it’s all of the albums in my iTunes library, dated 2005. Some albums that I really only discovered in 2005 but which were from 2004 or before are therefore excluded. Here’s the list:
