Most Fantastical Records of 2005 (January-June)

A Listmania! list by "ojimmy"
 
Silent Alarm
1.  Silent Alarm by Bloc Party
The list author says:
  "This years most expected Indie heroes live up to their name. Art-rock, Indie pop, funk rock, and a hint of emo all rolled into one sleek package."
4.50   Used & New from: 0.04
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (106 customer reviews)

Mezmerize
2.  Mezmerize by System of a Down
The list author says:
  "Freak Metallers, personally my favourite band, return with a more than pleasing 3rd studio album. The bonus is that it's only one half of this year's assault- watch out for Hypnotize in October!"
5.77   Used & New from: 2.78
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (82 customer reviews)

Lullabies To Paralyze
3.  Lullabies To Paralyze by Queens Of The Stone Age
The list author says:
  "An unexpected hit for me this year- without Nick Oliveri and Grohl on the drumstool i thought it wouldn't even compare with Songs for the Deaf. Oh, but it did. Lullabies... is better!"
5.68   Used & New from: 1.48
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (64 customer reviews)

Funeral
4.  Funeral by Arcade Fire
The list author says:
  "Arcade Fire are officially cult faves. This wall of luxurious, expansive music (what category does it fall under?) is just lush."
8.99   Used & New from: 2.23
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (151 customer reviews)

X&Y
5.  X&Y by Coldplay
The list author says:
  "Maybe not better that Rush of Blood... but equally as impressive. Don't disregard it as Coldplay b-sides. All the spirit and skillful songwriting still flows through Chris Maritins' veins."
4.89   Used & New from: 0.01
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (490 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Crimson
6.  Crimson by Alkaline Trio
The list author says:
  ""Is someone down below/blowing you a kiss?" Feels like it! Crimson is as punk-rock-goth as ur gonna get today. How they still remain hushed is bewildering."
10.04   Used & New from: 0.26
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (32 customer reviews)

In Your Honour [2CD]
7.  In Your Honour [2CD] by Foo Fighters
The list author says:
  "Dayam, don't listen to the medicore reviews the new Foos record has been receiving- this is better than One By One and on parr with Colour and the Shape. Acoustic side is suprisingly beautiful."
4.88   Used & New from: 0.24
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (104 customer reviews)

Elevator
8.  Elevator by Hot Hot Heat
The list author says:
  "Every song on here is either catchy or suprising. Much MUCH better than the debut- which wasn't bad. It is the best guitar pop you'll hear this year; and they should become as successful as Killers."
5.63   Used & New from: 0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

A Certain Trigger
9.  A Certain Trigger by Maxmo Park
The list author says:
  "Genuinely great lyrics for an indie band, reassuringly good riffs and tunes. Every song on here is 3 star or above. Not just another Ordinary Boys."
4.25   Used & New from: 0.17
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (49 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Hours
10.  Hours by Funeral for a Friend
The list author says:
  "I admit at first this album was very disappointing, after Casually Dressed... and hearing Streetcar i though "Oh good." But this is a grower, definately."
4.87   Used & New from: 0.24
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (67 customer reviews)
