Village Voice Pazz & Jop 2005 Critics Poll

The Village Voice has just released the results of their 2005 Pazz & Jop Critics Poll and it turns out that Kayne West turns out to be the big winner, topping both the albums and singles list with his album Late Registration and the single from it "Gold Digger," which also features actor Jamie Fox. (Take that, 50 Cent!)

Here's the top ten albums from the poll:

1. Kanye West - Late Registration
2. MIA - Arular
3. Sufjan Stevens - Illinois
4. Sleater-Kinney - The Woods
5. Fiona Apple - Extraordinary Machine
6. White Stripes - Get Behind Me Satan
7. Antony & The Johnsons - I Am A Bird Now
8. The Hold Steady - Separation Sunday
9. New Pornographers - Twin Cinema
10. My Morning Jacket - Z

And the top ten singles from the poll are:

1. Kanye West ft. Jamie Fox - Gold Digger
2. Amerie - 1 Thing
3. Kelly Clarkson - Since U Been Gone
4. Gorillaz - Feel Good Inc.
5. (tie) Damian Marley - Welcome to Jamrock
Gwen Stefani - Hollaback Girl
7. (tie) Franz Ferdinand - Do You Want To
Madonna - Hung Up
9. White Stripes - Doorbell
10. Three 6 Mafia - Stay Fly

I'm happy that my favorite single from last year, "Hung Up," did well in the singles polls. However, the album it was from, and my favorite album from last year, Confessions on a Dance Floor, came out at #61 on the albums poll.
