10 Things We Celebrate About... 

Of course, the problem with the first week of January is that the music machine hasn't quite swung into action yet, what with most pop stars being far too busy working off the extra pound or two they put on over Christmas to bother releasing any new music or actually, y'know, doing anything. Which is fair enough really, as we all know that anyone fronting a band is automatically rubbish unless their stomach is perfectly flat, but does mean that there's not a lot happening to provide inspiration for a 10 Things... piece, so instead we'd like to draw your attention to the rather fab Sweeping the Nation's Top 20 Albums of 2005 Poll, which they kindly asked us to contribute to and, for anyone interested, here's our list, somewhat handicapped by our inability to remember when albums actually came out:-
  1. Girls Aloud - Chemistry
  2. Rachel Stevens - Come and Get It
  3. Art Brut - Bang Bang Rock and Roll
  4. Jill Sobule - Underdog Victorious
  5. Hilary Duff - Most Wanted
  6. Half Man Half Biscuit - Achtung Bono
  7. Sugababes - Taller in More Ways
  8. Ladytron - Witching Hour
  9. MIA - Arular
  10. Franz Ferdinand - You Could Have it So Much Better
