Favourite albums of the year 2006

Postby Ebony1983 on Sun Dec 03, 2006 2:46 pm

My favourite is Spell Of Iron Tarot, this year appeared a lot of kitsch, and remixes, I'm waiting for some sensible suggestions.

This is kinda off topic for the Stalag '99 forum. I'll kick it over to General Discussion.

It's kind of off topic for GD too. Someone kick it to off topic. ;)

Yeah, it'd be welcome in OT.

Anyways, albums of this year?

I think that top one for me is definitely Gnarls Barkley's "St. Elsewhere". It's somehow... different.
I've been listening to a lot of Raconteurs' "Broken boy soilder", it's good though I with Jack White would go back to White Stripes later.
Weird Al is usually not my cup of tea, but I think that this year's "Straight outta lynwood" is rather good.
Oh, and of course, I've been gorging myself on Thom Yorke's "The eraser".
I was also more than happy that Ray Davies released his first solo album "Other people's lives" and that it's actually good, save for a bit too 90ies sound.
You probably haven't heard of him, but Darko Rundek has an excellent album issued this year.

Yeah Gnarls Barkley was definitely something good this year, if my brother didn't steal the cd from me I'd still be listening to it right now.

But yeah for me the best albums I've got this year have been "Kingdom Come" by Jay-Z, "Hip Hop is Dead" by Nas, and "Food and Liquor" by Lupe Fiasco. All three of these staying pretty far away from the whole "big booty bitches and bling bling" crap rap that I am hating more and more.

Fishscale/More Fish - Ghostface Killah
Food & Liquor - Lupe Fiasco
Everready - Tech N9ne
Hip Hop Is Dead - Nas
Once Again - John Legend
Revelations - Audioslave

I bootlegged like fifty new things this year and these are like the albums I enjoy most certainly. It's really hard to place St. Elsewhere in my list, I've been listening to it since it came out, but it feels so bad since "hipsters" and "trendies" have been hopping on it.

OH man thanks, I forgot about Once Again by John Legend, thanks Zhongda. That is by far the best out of all these cds I listed.

I loved Kingdom Come, and by god, Gnarls Barkley was somethin of genius. Dangermouse has turned out to be one of my favorite producers of the music industry.

Thom Yorke's "The Eraser" is musical genius.

Tool - "10,000 days" I enjoyed immensely.

Black Label Society put out like 3 CD's, all were awesome.

Iron Maiden - "Matter of Life and Death" and Blind Guardian "A Twist in the Myth" are my two top picks, though.

WTF? One of your fans tries to make conversation for you and your fans to interact and you shoot it to another forum? That's just stupid.

I'd say "Weird Al" Yankovic's Straight Outta Lynwood topped it off for me. I'd been waiting years for that to be released!

In any given year, I don't buy enough new albums to fill a top ten list. I could give you a decent top ten for 2005 by now though...

As for 2006:
1. Kaizers Orchestra - Live at Vega
2. Gogol Bordello - Gipsy Punk Underground World Strike
3. Ringel-S - Blue and Pink Demo CDs (Counted as one album for the purpose of this list).
4. De Kift - Zeven
5. Richard Thompson - 1000 Years of Popular Music, Double Album Version (the single album came out several years ago - this version is a new recording)
6. Various - Rogues' Gallery
7. Planet Orange - Drip Drop Dripping (I see on last.fm that Planet Orange from my home town of Groningen, NL, have been tagged with "apeman for a singer". So I'm not the only one who thinks that!)
7. Korpiklaani - Tales Along This Road
8. David Gilmour - On An Island (not sure this one came out during 2006 or late in 2005)
9. Neil Young - Living With War.
10. Ian Gillan - Gillan's Inn.

Well stone me! I've actually made a top 10. Though I'm cheating a bit because I didn't think the Gillan album was all that good, and Living With War really does sound like it was written and recorded in a week. If Neil Young had given himself two weeks, he'd have been come up with a classic, I'm sure.

I'm going to have to say Peter Bjorn and John's "Writer's Block". I love that band to bits. (Though I could also name a whole bunch of other albums that I *discovered* this year that I absolutely adore.)

Oh, I have to agree, "St. Elsewhere" is surprisingly good. Dawg got me hooked. ;>_>
