Originally I wanted to review every album I bought/otherwise listened to this year. Clearly, I've slacked on that. Partially cos there have been a lot of albums that, for whatever reason, I don't feel like writing a full review for. So what I have decided to do is give a few really quick reviews all at once.... in haiku form. Here we go!

Enemy Mine by Swan Lake
Bejar, Krug, Mercer
Less than the sum of its parts
Yet still quite awesome

Reliquiae by Carbon Dating Service
Best band name ever
Puts free album on the web
Superb indie pop

The Open Door EP by Death Cab For Cutie
Some left over songs
Exactly what you'd expect
For better or worse

Everything is Real by Leeroy Stagger
Very well written
If a little too "twangy"
Some great alt-country
