My (delayed) top albums of 2003

Yeah, I know we’re almost six weeks into 2004. It just took a while to put these thoughts together.

This year I was almost content to let KEXP speak for me on the best releases of the year. But I can’t find a concise link on their site for this year’s “best of” list (though it is on the online playlist), and besides Greg inspired me (and gave me a neato format to steal!). So I’ve written an unordered, quick top albums of 2003 list, plus some reflections on the year in music as a whole.
