Top 10 Albums of 2005

With 2005 behind us, Kidzworld takes a look back at the hottest album releases of the year. Get the goods on our top picks!

#10. Bow Wow - Wanted

Whether it's cuz he's older or in love, Bow Wow really delivers on his fourth disc. Wanted is filled with good beats and lots of guests, including Snoop Dogg, Omarion and his GF Ciara.

#9. Chris Brown - Chris Brown

Chris Brown is only 16, but he's already got big shoes to fill after being compared to big names like Usher and Mario. He proves with his self-titled debut that he's not just another teen singer, but one with lasting star-power. Bow Wow, Jermaine Dupri and Juelz Santana make cameos on the hot track, Run It.

#8. Rihanna - Music of the Sun

Music of the Sun is filled with catchy reggae songs like Pon de Replay, If It's Lovin' That You Want and the title track. Even if you're not a huge fan of Caribbean music, we guarantee you'll be bobbing your head and shaking your hips to the tunes of this girl from the land of sun, surf and sand.

#7. Ashlee Simpson - I Am Me

Yeah, Ashlee Simpson faced more embarrassing situations in a year than others do in a lifetime, but she didn't try to escape the noise. Instead, she confronted her boo boos on album number two and wrote a couple of songs (Beautifully Broken and Catch Me When I Fall) in honor of her lip-synching catastrophe on SNL. You'll want to la la all over again, especially to the tunes of her great first single, Boyfriend.

#6. Story of the Year - In the Wake of Determination
Story of the Year rocks the mic with hard-hitting tracks like We Don't Care Anymore, Taste the Poison and March of the Dead. The best thing about this disc is that SOTY recorded it like a live performance so it'll actually sound like you're listening to them in person!

#5. Fall Out Boy - From Under the Cork Tree
The boys of Fall Out Boy offer up a wicked album filled with great guitar riffs and ridiculously long but funny titles (like Our Lawyer Made Us Change the Name of This Song So We Wouldn't Get Sued). Sugar, We're Goin' Down and Dance, Dance have already gotten a lot of play on the radio, but stay tuned for more of FOB's tracks to hit the airwaves.

#4. Mariah Carey - The Emancipation of Mimi

She's been on the DL for the past few years, but Mariah Carey has stepped back into the spotlight with yet another chart-topping album. With glamorous looks, awesome lyrical skills and a mind-blowing five-octave voice, she hits all the notes with perfection and continues to pour out hit after hit after hit.

#3. Carrie Underwood - Some Hearts

American Idol winner Carrie Underwood steals your heart on her debut disc, Some Hearts. She shows off her powerhouse pipes on her first single, Jesus, Take the Wheel, and goes autobiographical on I Ain't In Checotah Anymore. Also includes the bonus track, Inside Your Heaven!

#2. Black Eyed Peas - Monkey Business

Monkey Business truly is an audio delight. With influences from pop, hip-hop, folk and funk, will.i.am, apl.de.ap., Taboo and Fergie have fused their talents to make one heck of an album! Guests include Justin Timberlake, Sting and the godfather of soul, James Brown. Hot tracks like My Humps, Pump It and Don't Phunk With My Heart have become club favorites.

#1. Kanye West - Late Registration

Following up on his hugely successful debut, The College Dropout, Kanye West teams up with artists such as Maroon 5's Adam Levine and Jay-Z on Late Registration to unleash smash hits like Heard 'Em Say, Diamonds From Sierra Leone and Gold Digger.

    Hi there! I am Rose, (If you have somehow not seen me around so far) an avid writer and roleplayer here on KW. I've recently realized that I love critique. It's one of my favorite things to do and receive. And not so recently, I realized there's a lot of OCs that need improvement out there.  Like a lot. It's kind of scary. So I've decided to start reviewing these OCs, both the good and the bad. But as always, I have some standards.  I will review OCS from these fandoms: Dr. Who Undertale Danganronpa RWBY  Soul Eater Warrior Cats Hunger Games Divergent Harry Potter Vocaloid Black Butler MLP (Yes I am a bit of a closet brony shh don't tell anyone) Ava's Demon (Although I doubt anyone knows what this is) Percy Jackson Adventure Time Steven Universe Gravity Falls 99% of Disney Attack On Titan Touhou Avatar (The four elements and stuff not the weird blue people.) Pokemans Original Works Ask me if I review anything that isnt on this list. But before people start freaking out, I do not review LOTR, Supernatural, Narnia, or Sherlock.  Please put your character in an RP style form including name, personality, backstory, and any fandom specific info. If your character is in one of the fandoms listed go ahead and post right away. I will respond ASAP with how you can improve your OC and a general rating. Be prepared for criticism. Well, go ahead and start posting your OCs!

    Disney is good in my opinion but I feel like each time I watch a disney movie that it just don't want to make me watch it again. Like when I was younger I would watch my favorite disney movie a billion times but now I can barely make it through watching the same movie/episode twice.
