Oi how can i forget Mariah. Im so glad shes came back.
Apparent thread killer
Im soooooooo excited that my fave CDs are up for so many Grammy Noms....Mariah Carey was awesome, and John Legend is my absolute favorite of the year!!I knew he's be a hit when he sang TWO songs at a Kanye concert I went to....I remembered those songs a lot more than any of Kanye's, and thats saying a lot cuz Im a huge Kanye fan. Those 3 (mariah, kanye-late registration, and John Legend) plus Faith Evans (which really surprised me, I love the whole CD) are the CDs I rotate in my car player.
For Your Entertainment
Gwen Stefani's solo CD and Green Day's CD were both great.
We have similar lists. I forgot to include Green Day.

The Best CDs of 2005? Hmm. I have a feeling I'm forgetting something, but here are the ones that come to mind right off.
The Decemberists - Picaresque Easily my favorite album of the year. The lyrics are astounding, the music inspiring, and, overall, it gives you the same feeling of satisfaction from sitting down and reading a classic novel.
Sufjan Stevens - Illinois If you haven't heard this, go. Do it. Run, don't walk. It will speak for itself much better than I can speak for it.
Death Cab for Cutie - Plans Yeah, yeah, everyone is accusing them of selling out by hopping onto a major label, but when I want to feel better about life, I listen to "Different Names for the Same Thing," darn it.
Depeche Mode - Playing the Angel I had fears that this would be another Exciter, but thankfully, I was wrong. The minute the distorted blast of "A Pain I'm Used To" hits your head, you know that everyone's favorite leather-clad synth trio still has some musical gold left in them.
Franz Ferdinand - You Could Have it So Much Better Where their debut was like a fun update on the stylish, angular sound of Wire in the '80s, this is like Wire meets The Stooges and The Beatles. How could that be a bad thing?
Weezer - Make Believe This one nearly wore out my CD player the first month after I bought it. Nobody does it better than Rivers.
The White Stripes - Get Behind Me, Satan The Stripes go bluegrass! Marimbas, mandolins, and pianos are our friends.
Sigur Ros - Takk Music and emotion are generally synonymous, but when one listens to an album like this, it becomes even more apparent. A good portion of this lovely album sounds like sheer joy infused into musical form. (Plus, where else will you hear brass bands, chimes, and bone-crushing riffs melded so seamlessly?)
Motion City Soundtrack - Commit This to Memory This one has to receive more of an "honorable mention," but I defy anyone to listen to "Resolution" and not be moved.

BTW- Love your avatar, Mantenna.
Yessss. Ditto and so much word to pretty much your entire post...

And then there's always my obsessive adoration for everything that My Morning Jacket does... and "Z" was no exception. So many of their tracks are haunting and stark, yet beautiful. And it seems they sort of wrangle their way through various genres seamlessly on this cd. It's pretty great overall, IMO.
Spoon - Gimme Fiction. Good stuff. I love everything they've done in the past, as well... this was an amazing follow-up to the previous two, and they're still going strong.
I'm with you on this one geek the girl. I have been a fan of his music for decades. Ohio still gives me chills and Only Love Can Break Your Heart still makes me cry. After the Gold Rush, Harvest, Rust Never Sleeps, and now Prairie Wind. It's so good to have another great album and I hope like you said, that he'll be around for a lot more amazing albums.
