Great call on the Vic Chesnutt tune. I have been listening to him a lot since he killed himself the other day...and that song could have made my list but I forgot that he made an album last year.And the "Fantasies" album by Metric would have to be toward the top of my list last year...you could put several songs from it on a best of list.And a final word of thanks for you guys for telling me about Phoenix...another great great album...I didn't know of them until this year.
