Top 10: 2006

Cocaine's Top 10 Albums of 2006. I don't like lists really, so my blurbs and choices may reflect that. Like it or lump it. And the order isn't too important. For the Staff thing.
1Converge
No Heroes


Though it can never match up to Jane Doe, No Heroes grabs you right off the bat with Heartache and continues to punch you in the sack for the next thirteen tracks. It's unrelenting in both intensity and awesomeness.
2Gorod
Leading Vision


The French are at it again, releasing an album that not only matches their previous album, the near flawless Neurotripsicks, but manages to surpass it in every way. Leading Vision is an album as listenable as it is technical, and on the whole, it's outstanding.
3Dream Quest
Centralia


A 5 song concept album, clocking in at just over 30 minutes with over 120 possible storylines seems pretty cool as it is. Then add to it the music, a style the band calls "Adventure Metal", and you're in for a treat. Mixing the speed and energy of Power Metal with Pop-Punk hooks, all of which are excellently executed, puts Dream Quest up there with the best of them.
4Dismember
The God That Never Was


Dismember, one of the most consistent bands in metal, released The God That Never Was this past February and added an extra dose of melody to their otherwise crunchy school death metal sound. With the God That Never Was, the band formerly known as Dismemberizer shows us their music is leagues above their English.
5k-os
Atlantis: Hymns for Disco


k-os is first and foremost a rapper. There's only one problem; it's probably his weakest trait. Even so, he's still a decent MC, and with his 3rd full-length, he decides to flex his song writing skills to further push the limits of what we perceive as "hip-hop". Though not as good as it could have been, it deserves to be on this list.
6Gnarls Barkley
St. Elsewhere


I don't think there's much I can put here that already hasn't been said. It's catchy, it's soulful, it's hip and it's outstanding.
7Into Eternity
The Scattering of Ashes


Into Eternity's revolving door line-up may finally have paid off with the addition of new vocalist Stu Block. Block adds a new level of depth to the band with his varied vocal styles, and the rest of the bunch further builds upon IE's progressive metal sound with tighter musicianship and a more consistent approach to song writing.
8Agalloch
Ashes Against The Grain


An album that seems fitting for any mood, Ashes Against the Grain shows Agalloch further expanding their sound by delving deeper into post-rock territory, all without abandoning their roots naturist, folk-doom roots.
9UneXpect
In a Flesh Aquarium


This is what would happen if Mr. Bungle worshipped Voivod. Luckily, In a Flesh Aquarium is as good as it is weird, and it's pretty friggin' weird.
10Justin Timberlake
FutureSex/LoveSounds


This was one of those albums I didn't want to like. Somehow, Justin and company (and by company, I mean Timberland) managed to do the unthinkable: they released an album with a very heavy Prince influence that actually turned out better than the new Prince album. It's got some awkward moments, but on the whole it's pretty strong. And for the record, I quite like SexyBack.
