Continuing my list of favorite albums from every year I've been alive.
Dido: Life for Rent
I was still still having a miserable time finding good, new music in 2003. Fortunately, there was Dido.
Seriously, the adult contemporary station I was listening to was killing my interest in music altogether. Life for Rent wasn't as great an album as No Angel, but it was way better than the other crap I was exposed to. And it was another fantastic concert.
Fountains of Wayne: "Stacy's Mom"
No Doubt: "It's My Life"
