    My top 25 albums of 2006I had plenty of free time this long weekend and so I decided to compile my top 25 albums of 2006. This year I've been a little more laid back with music shopping but that doesn't mean I've been non-existent with it either!
    Here's my list in random order:
    Matmos "The rose has teeth in the mouth of a beast"
    John Zorn "Moonchild-songs without words"
    Duncan Sheik "White Limousine"
    I am X "The Alternative"
    Peeping tom "peeping tom"
    I'm From Barcelona "Let me introduce my friends"
    Christina Aguilera "Back to basics"
    Mogwai "Mr. Beast"
    DJ Shadow "The Outsider"
    Barry Adamson "Stranger on the sofa"
    Ani Difranco "Reprieve"
    The Blood Brothers "young machetes"
    The Walkmen "Pussycats" & "A hundred miles off"
    Skye "Mind how you go"
    Sean Lennon "Friendly fire"
    Sparta "Threes"
    Gnarls Barkley "St. Elsewhere"
    Bunbury & Vegas "El tiempo de las cerezas"
    Tego Calderon "The underdog/El subestimado"
    Lisa M "Respect"
    Sparklehorse "Dreamt for light years in the belly of a mountain"
    Dashboard Confessional "Dusk and summer"
    Yeah yeah yeahs "Show your bones"
    Me'shell Ndegeocello "Article 3"
    The Mars Volta "Amputechture"

    I don't have a full list because I rarely buy music.... but The Paramour Sessions by Papa Roach is top notch

    From your list I have the albums by Barry Adamson (always great),Mogwai (I think Mr Beast is ok but a bit disappointing),and Yeah Yeah Yeahs:)cool: ).
    My favourite of 2006 is still the first one I bought this year (Jan 2nd!),it's The Strokes 'First Impressions Of Earth'.They also played the gig of the year for me at Blackpool Empress Ballroom.
    Debut of the year goes to iLiKETRAiNS 'Progress Reform'.
    I've also got into Tunng this year,their two albums are both excellent (Comments Of The Inner Chorus is the 2006 one).
    If I compiled a top 25 I'd be here all night!

    For 2006 my top album would be Justin Timberlake's FutureSex/LoveSounds

    I'd rather further talk about the best album of 2005 though since I'm sure most of you have not bought/heard of it. If you have not I really urge you to go out and get the best album of 2005 which was the masterpiece that was sadly overlooked, Toni Braxton's Libra

    Second the Wolfmother here :headbang:

    First thing that comes to mind from 2006 is the Twilight Singers' "Powder Burns". I can't get enough of this thing and it's been out for months.

    Obviously it WASN'T that good, if no one heard of it.:wink:

    Top albumns of 2006 thus far.... The Christina one is decent. I hear that Nelly Furtado's album did somewhat well.
    Who knows what will happen. I tend to just listen to singles anyways.:wink:

    Oh it was amazing, the public just has horrible taste and would rather propell trash to superstardom instead of embracing talent and great hard work. That's a whole other thread though :rolleyes:

    WOW I can't believe I didn't remember this!!!!

    The Best Album of 2006 hands down is Stadium Arcadium by The Red Hot Chili Peppers.

    Such an amazing, beautiful, funky album. I can listen from track 1-28 without skipping one.

    Sidenote: Make sure to pick up Incubus' new album Light Grenades coming out this....Tuesday.

    Well, i know it's subjective. But it's pretty remiss to not have "Modern Times" by Bob Dylan
