You probably won't like any of them, but here goes - my top 10 albums of the year!

10. McFly - Wonderland
Image
A very decent follow up to 'Room On The Third Floor', the second McFly album appeared to be much more mature, with stories of mid life crises and the like! Very easy to listen to too!
Top 3 tracks:
01. She Falls Asleep Pt. 2
02. The Ballad Of Paul K
03. Too Close For Comfort

I haven't heard it but I am keen to pickup a copy, especially if it's easy to listen?

Well, your number 10 album it's not one of my most listened albums of the year that's about to end... I must say that McFly remain a mystery for me, because I quite don't like anything from that CD. xox.

Moving on then - to No.09 - and I realised after I posted McFly that I had forgotten one - so there are two No.9's!

09. Rachel Stevens - Come & Get It/Pussycat Dolls - PCD
ImageImage
Now, these two are quite different albums. Evidently I've not quite shaken all traces of cheese yet as the Rachel Stevens singles were some of my favourite of the year! However, I think alot of rockier fans would agree that she's been a standout pop artist of 2005! Alongside her are newcomers PCD, with an incredible album - half new songs, half covers - but more exciting!
Top 3 tracks:
01. Secret Garden
02. Funny How
03. So Good
----------------
01. Beep - ft. Will.I.Am
02. Stickwitu
03. Wait A Minute ft. Timbaland

Well I haven't heard either in full but of Rachel's MANY singles it seems like a good album and PSD is one on my list!

Onto No.8

08. Melanie C - Beautiful Intentions
Image
Now this was an album I was really really excited about and it didn't disappoint, I played it forever when I got it, and her live tour was a really great show! Her best album for me!
Top 3 Tracks
01. You'll Get Yours
02. Little Piece Of Me
03. You Will See

The Pussycat Dolls' album is not that cool, but my fave remains "Stickwithu". Another album that I've listened and liked in part was this "Beautiful Intentions" from Mel C.. I liked a lot "You Will See"...xox.

Top 3 Tracks:
01. My Beautiful Woman
02. Climbing The Walls
03. Crawling Back To You

I can't express myself over the BSB album, because I must admit I did not have time to listen to the whole album... The only title I know out of your personal album top 3 is "Climbing The Walls" :lol: ; I'll try to listen to the album one of these days :wink: xox.

You already know that I think it's great!

Climbing The Walls is so good - it's scary how good that song is.

06. Sugababes - Taller In More Ways
Image
I don't own another Sugababes album (actually, I brought Angels... on the cheap but thought it were naff). This something else. Incredible from start to finish, most songs are quality! A very solid album!
Top 3 Tracks:
01. Bruised
02. Ace Reject
03. Gotta Be You

05. KT Tunstall - Eye To The Telescope
Image
Probably my favourite artist of 2005, but although she's been the best gig and some of the best tunes, she's not the best album as some are a bit hit and miss! Incredible still though!
Top 3 Tracks:
01. Heal Over
02. Black Horse & The Cherry Tree
03. Suddenly I See

I've not heard the Sugababes album but I think I'd probably agree with you if the singles are anything to go by.

Woo for KT Tunstall of course.

Woo for both of the albums at #6 and #5. The new Sugababes album, I did not have time to listen, but the KT Tunstall one is really great. Favourite song? You all know it :lol: "Black Horse & The Cherry Tree " 8-) xox.

04. Black Eyed Peas - Monkey Business
Image
Seeing these guys tour this year was just incredible, they are so so so so brilliant and quirky and lively on stage and this album is a million times better than Elephunk!
Top 5 Tracks:
01. If You Want Love
02. Do What You Want
03. Gone Going
04. My Humps
05. They Don't Want Music

03. Craig David - The Story Goes
Image
Definitely think I'm one of the biggest Craig fans on here (I'm waiting so patiently for a tour). His albums have been called hit and miss but I think this is his best one, it's got great ballads and a couple of wicked uptemptos!
Top 5 Tracks:
01. Don't Love You No More (I'm Sorry)
02, Johnny
03. Hypnotic
04. One Last Dance
05. Seperate Ways

I've gone right off the BEP's this year.

I bet the Craig David album is alright though.

Probably a shock entry now...

02. Simon Webbe - Sanctuary
Image
Wow, this is very high for an album out just over a month back - but my least favourite Blue member has pulled this solo thing right out of the bag! Two whopping singles (including one thats just made it two months in the top 15!) and a top 20 album! This isn't one of those albums where all the tracks standout, there's only a few standout but the standard throughout is pretty much top notch! Good work!
Top 5 Tracks:
01. After All This Time
02. No Worries
03. Ashamed
04. Lay Your Hands
05. Free

Lately I listened to Simon Webbe's album, so I think it's pretty good... Cool to see him at #2. Wooo for BEP at #4... I, myself, ignore the number 3, so no comments for Craig :P
Let's see... I predict James Blunt at #1... xox.
