4. Counting Crows "August and Everything After" - Come on, you don't have this already? Great, great CD that is just a ton of fun to listen to. You've already heard Mr. Jones, but check out Anna Begins.
3. Damien Rice "O" - Amazing modern folk record. Very minimalistic, but very easy to listen to. Check out Cannonball and Aime.
2. Joe Garner "The Mourning Birds" - I've blogged this one before. June and God, the Ballad of Gypsy Jack.
1. Charlie Hall "On the Road To Beautiful" - Greatest record ever written about faith. Sweet pop production and amazing songs. I Will Overcome, On The Road to Beautiful, and Chasing.
