Here are 10 standout albums for the year. These albums are in no particular order, and they standout for different reasons. Some are solid debuts: Amy Winehouse (U.S. debut) and Lily Allen. And while this wasn’t Mandy Moore’s debut, she took on more creative control of her music and did a great job with Wild Hope.

Best New Artist:


Having her video for 1234 featured in an iPod Nano commercial is the best that happened to the Canadian singer, Leslie Feist. It started the Feist frenzy – 70,000 downloads in a week and her album The Reminder hit the Billboard top 20.

While Feist might be new to many, the rest of us have been rooting for her success since her 2005 debut album, Let It Die. Both albums are excellent and her success is well deserved! Her original music is playing on the jukebox to the right.

So, snap your fingers, count 1, 2, 3, 4… and click here!

More on Feist during my Grammy coverage next month.
