The Guardian's best and worst of 2005


DJ Nick Luscombe selects Snow Borne Sorrow as the best album of 2005.

High: The best album was Snowborne Sorrow by Nine Horses. I've been a lifelong fan of David Sylvian, and this album features songwriting and production that is light years ahead of pretty much anyone in popular music.

Low: The death of synthesiser pioneer Robert Moog. The past 40 years of music would have sounded completely different without this electronics genius.
