I would nominate Beck's Sea Change (it was really nominated come to think of it) and Wilco's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot for recording quality.

I do not think Verse is PB's best offering.
Norah Jones came out of nowhere, and sings in a style which is a cross between country and jazz. That combined style may not sound good on paper, but I love her style.
Norah Jones deserves it.
Finally a really good and interesting vocalist (not to mention well recorded) sells a lot of albums and is very popular.
In the film score category, I'd nominate the soundtrack from Lord of eh Rings - The Two Towers. Superbly recorded and stunning music. Theater systems will not prepare you for how good this soundtrack is. If you liked the film at all, this recording will bring it back to you in spades. And I will guarantee that this CD will tell you what your system's made of. Check it out, folks.
