Isaac Alexander See Thru Me

Throughout the year, the musician/graphic designer was responsible for a string of eye-catching flyers that look great behind a frame or wheatpasted to a telephone pole. But Alexander stood out this year when “See Thru Me,” a soft-spoken album he released in 2007 to fervent acclaim in small circles, landed in our Greatest Arkansas Albums poll, sitting right alongside Louis Jordan and Al Green as a contemporary spoiler of the highest degree. To our ears, it still sounds like a cold classic, ready for nationwide appreciation.
