Musical renaissance?

I have this post as a draft for so long that many of these bands aren’t new but that doesn’t diminish what I feel has been quite a musical revival in 2005. Most of the bands listed below have released new albums this year and have helped to provide a fresh soundtrack for my life. Are we really in a musical renaissance or are the internet and music services such as Napster and iTunes changing they way we find new music and specifically how quickly acts get “out there” to music lovers? The idea is certainly worthy of further consideration.
