Dec. 7 issue.

NEW YORK - Stephen King’s taste in music is more
eclectic than scary.

The best-selling author reveals his seven picks for
the “best albums of the year” in Entertainment
Weekly’s Dec. 7 issue.

“In truth, your Uncle Stevie was disappointed with

his year-end list reflects that,” King writes. “I

His No. 1 pick is Steve Earle’s “Washington Square
Serenade,” followed by Wilco’s “Sky Blue Sky,” Mika’s
“Life in Cartoon Motion” and Lyle Lovett and His Large

special is Lovett’s vermouth-dry vocals and his
equally dry wit.”

King’s fifth choice is Ozzy Osbourne’s “Black Rain” —
“finest heavy metal record of the year; a true
speaker-buster” — followed by John Fogerty’s “Revival”
and Southern Culture on the Skids’ “Countrypolitan
