Viktor Vaughn - Vaudeville Villain
Louie Vega - Elements of Life
Quantic Soul Orchestra - Stampede

I mostly think in terms of singles or songs, so beyond that, I dunno what I'd pick. Maybe I'd add Danger Mouse & Jemini's Ghetto Pop Life, but that's still marinatin'.

Song of the year for me hands down was "East Remixed (2003 re-edit)" on Moton Records. Remix/edit (by DJ Harvey I think) of a '70s song by Billy Paul. It's superbad. thumbsup

My top albums, no particular order:

-White Stripes, Elephant
-Beck, Sea Change
-Cat Power, You Are Free
-Hot, Hot Heat, Make Up the Breakdown
-OutKast, Speakerboxxxxxxxx/Love Below
-The Streets, Original Pirate Material
-New Pornographers, Electric Version

A couple of these were 2002 (Hot, Hot Heat and The Streets) but since I am unscrupulous, and didn't hear them until 2003, and since the albums are really damn good, they make the list. A good year for music, though you wouldn't know listening to the radio. David

In no particular order

Broken Social Scene -- You Forgot It In People (good call Troubado!)
Stars -- Heart
Thrice -- The Artist in the Ambulance
Mogwai -- Happy Songs For Happy People
Cursive -- The Ugly Organ

Those are the stand outs in my book.

Not a great musical year...but to be fair, my taste has been more rock centered lately.

1) Singles / radio tracks - from Janes Addiction

2) Anything by Beyonce Knowles - cause its great to see her performing on TV shows. She is fabulous looking and gives off high energy.

One of the funniest days I've ever had in a studio was engineering for Harvey. His humour is to such a degree that he can criticise anything brutally without upsetting "studio karma".

Is that Louie Vega production the one with Josh Milan on vocals? Man, without Blaze I think I'd go crazy, LIVING LEGENDS!

It's an LP (I think it's only come out in Japan--which is a shame, as it's a brilliant listening experience end-to-end, real solid "album" feel), with vocals handled by Raul Midon and a female singer named Anane. Plus all the familiar Little Louie musical crew are there, like Luisito Quintero, Albert Menendez, etc.

And I second the Blaze sentiments!
