Let the Year End Begin

Pitchfork has released their list of the “Top 50 Albums of 2005.” It’s a pretty good looking list, and for the first time in years I’m actually in a position to say so. I already have ten albums on the list (and I’ll probably get more), which isn’t bad for someone hurtling into middle age.

I don’t know what’s different this year, but for the last several years, I would be lucky to even recognize ten albums on a respectable year-end list like this, let alone own ten of them. Maybe it’s the iTunes Music Store, which lets me buy all the music I want without further crowding my apartment, and my iPods, which let me carry it all with me.
