***Remy Shand 'The Way I Feel'---This was one of the most refreshing CDs I heard this year.Smooth,breezy,70s'-styled soul music by the very talented Shand.This album is mesmerizing.

***Santana 'Shaman'---Carlos delivers another winning album filled with many treats and surprises.Some songs have to "grow" on you,but overall,it's a fun,joyful album.

***Marc Anthony 'Mended'---Marc is one of the best singers in the biz and this album (his second English-language CD) is excellent,containing fierce uptempo Latin jams ("Tragedy") and beautiful love ballads ("She Mends Me").

***Lauryn Hill 'Unplugged'---Many people thought Lauryn was insane for following up 'Miseducation' with this 2-CD acoustic set.But I think it's brilliant and captivating.One can only wonder what she will do next.

Jagua Wright - Delusions...: Dont have the album, but it is very very nice.

NERD - In search Of : Need I say more?

Justin T - Justified. : very nice production value, but otherwise we all know he can't hold his own.

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

2002 was a pretty weak year... the best albums were from old timers:

Peter Gabriel - Up
David Bowie - Heathen

I also liked:

Moby - 18

That's about it... wasn't Seal supposed to release an album this year?

End.

TRON

N.E.R.D. was this year Ian.

David Bowie- Heathen
David Bowie- The Best Of
New Order- Retro (coming soon)
Tori Amos- Scarlet's Walk
U2- The Best of 1990-2000
Bjork- Family Tree
Bjork- Greatest Hits
Missy Elliott- Under Construction
Pink- Missundaztood
Tricky- A Ruff Guide
Nirvana- Nirvana
Prince- One Nite Alone

lots of greatest hits in there and most were released in the past few weeks.
I'd say the best of the lot is Bowie's 'Heathen'.
