    Oh Canada!

    The eclectic likes of Arcade Fire, Neil Young and Ron Sexsmith are among the 40 artists that made the list put together by the Canadian music media. The media members submitted their top five favorite albums released from June 1st, 2010 to May 31st, 2011 and based their choices solely on artistic merit, which is really subjective when you think about it.

    The initial 40 nominees will be trimmed to a shorter list, which should be announced on July 6th.

    Do you think Arcade Fire, Neil Young and Ron Sexsmith will make the cut on July 6th? Who is your favorite Canadian musician? Is it Alanis Morissette? Rush? Nickelback? Celine Dion? Shania Twain? Drake? Jeez, Canada really is a fertile ground for talent.
