Mildly unuseful note(s): in terms of the best albums of the year, everyone has their opinion; as is the case with haircuts (I'm looking at you MySpace emo-trash). But, the case is, most of the time something cool comes out of them. Hell, one might even find an album that one has never heard before. Along those lines, I figured I'd throw out my 2 cents on what mash-ups I was really into. To be entirely honest, my favorite album last year was The Grey Album. Whether or not it can be considered an album is beside my point...it's what I enjoyed listening to most, FACT. (side note: in the great tradition of mentioning The Go! Team's album as a favorite of 2005, which many did, I'm going to mention mash-ups which may, or may not, have been released in 2004.) So, here are my favorite mash-ups of 2005! PS...just as with albums & tracks goes, you can't hear everything released...hit me with some knowledge if you think you've got something that needs to be heard...let me know.
