>Dashboard Confessional – In the Shade of Poison Trees – Absolutely fantastic. This one might win back some fans who left over A Mission, A Mark, A Brand, A Scar.
Iron and Wine- The Shepherds Dog – Sam Beam employs cryptic, fragmented lyrics laced with biblical imagery to convey a clear anti-Christiant message. Musically Brilliant.
The Idan Raichel Project – The Idan Raichel Project – Honestly one of the best albums I’ve picked up all year. Idan Raichel has created a beautiful mosaic of world music from cultures spanning the entire globe.
