While I've been trying to compile my picks for my favorites of the year, it's been hard to narrow down my choices, I thought I'd start off w/ my least faves of the year. I have to say overall 2005 was a great year for my music collection and that is why I only chose three.
3. Ashlee Simpson I Am Me. I know I know. Shame on me. It was on sale for $8.99 at Target and I could not resisit! I should have. Save 2 songs (Boyfriend and L.O.V.E.) this has to be one of the most boring albums of the year (I almost chose Lindsay Lohan's sophmore effort but there were just enough trashy moments to save it). I am not even a fan, but like I said the cheap price was almost as glaring as her cheap fake blonde hair.
2. Javier García 13 Javier, Javier. I waited God knows how many years for you to follow up your flawless debut and this is the best you give me? Sounds like a Juanes knock-off to me (and I can't stand Juanes so we know where this is heading). Don't you just hate it when an artist makes a return after a lengthy abscence and the results are dismal?
1. Madonna Confessions On A Dancefloor Speaking of dismal...I know my membership to the fag society should be revoked but contrary to what every other fag says, this album is B-O-R-I-N-G! I can name about 5 other dance albums that were light years better than this. All the songs sound pretty much the same after a few listens. Besides I love Abba too much to appreciate the sample in Hung Up. If that weren't enough, Madge sounds so lazy vocally on this album it's not even funny. Can't she at least try? The only salvagable song was Jump. If you're going to make a good dance album can't you at least do something that wasn't done by the Minogue sisters in the 90s? No pun intended Sista M...but she needs to get off her high horse. This album was supposed to be a throwback to fun early Madonna? She failed miserably. She hasn't had fun since Erotica. Stop trying to hard.
An honorable mention goes to all the crappy reggaeton that was released this year. My hatred for the genre was further cemented last night at Circuit. While I can enjoy dancing to this ghetto fad for a song or 2, after awhile it all sounds THE SAME. They did a set last night and if it weren't for the videos I would have not known when one song began and when the next ended.
I leave you all as Chus is barking at me to take him for a walk. I will post my best of most likely tomorrow. Take care!
