The Music that moved me in 2003 list

I've been trying to write my own reviews for each of these,
hopefully I will, but in the meantime just wanted to make sure
you're all up on these. I don't want to hear that there's no
good music out there.

Meshell Nedegeocello - Comfort Woman - The woman with the hard-to-pronounce last name gives us diverse sounds, smoothness, and excellent content.

Radiohead - Hail to the Thief - (already wrote a review a few weeks back, learn about it)

Broken Social Scene - You Forgot It In People - Heard this playing in T-Shirt Orgy, asked the cat behind the counter, he sold me on it. I bought it and now want to sell you on it.

Outkast - Speakerbox/The Love Below - (review almost completed on this one)

Murs - The End of the Beginning - First west coast artist on Def Jux, songs with personality, character, and at times excellent production

Livesavas - Spirit in Stone (Solid debut, interested in hearing the next one)

Jay Z - The Black Album (In the last few years I've gone from a hater to a congratulator)

Massive Attack - The 100th Window - definitely mood music, but well constructed and lyrical.

Audioslave - what good gangster rap is, hard and visual. They're hurting em.

The White Stripes - White Blood Cells - came out in 2002, but I didn't hear it till 03. Two-person band that makes full music.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers - By The Way - how do you follow-up a classic? Create a beatle-esque album fully equipped with visual content and crooning.

Prefuse 73 - One Word Extinguisher - Mood music as well but I like the idea of it. Electronica meets hip hop, but it's definitely hip hop.

God's Stepson - 9th Wonder -
He gets a pass for using the same snare on every song
because he brought life to songs that I couldn't stomach via God's Son,
ex. "The Cross," "Mastermind," "Revolutionary Warfare."

Started this accapella-remix craze.

Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein - The album came out in 01.
Rome pulled my teeth out to get this in 02. I still slept.
Much like a painting when someone gives you their take,
your perception may actually change. This album is the truth.
