Year-End Top Ten

A local music aficionado asked for my year-end top ten list, and I inflict such things on IMN as a matter of course. For blog perusal, here it is:

1. Meshell Ndegeocello - The World Has Made Me The Man Of My Dreams
2. Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings - 100 Days, 100 Nights
3. M.I.A. - Kala
4. Ozomatli - Don't Mess With The Dragon
5. Saul Williams - The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of Niggy Tardust
6. Common - Finding Forever
7. Talib Kweli - Eardrum
8. Amy Winehouse - Back To Black
9. Robert Glasper - In My Element
10. Jay-Z - American Gangster

Local honorable mentions go to Cynthia Layne and The Born Again Floozies, and the reissue of the year is the Sly and the Family Stone boxset. Seriously, the box set is killer. Go get it now.
