I haven’t kept up with much music lately, so I can’t find an album worthy of the tenth spot on this list. I considered putting Spill Canvas’ new cd on the list, but honestly, though it was a solid piece of work, the band didn’t really surprise or impress me. Readers, go ahead and suggest some albums for my listening pleasure! And, if you haven’t checked out CunninLynguists’ new album yet, GET IT- rap fan or not. Now, I am by no means a hip hop fan, but this album is so soulful and rings of anguishing truths, representing the bedlam and tribulation experienced by many of the Southern populace. It is my favorite rap cd of all time, defying all stereotypes that I had previously held.
