Top 10 Of 2006

Not a great year in music again, but I still hold these 10 as my favorites.
1Sonic Youth
Rather Ripped


Very few have been this consistent. "Incinerate" is just about their best song.
2 Arctic Monkeys
Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not


Ridiculous debut. Exactly what needed to be done about the music world right here. Brash youngsters singing about what they knew best - being young.
3The Black Keys
Magic Potion


I felt at one point this would be the album that would make them huge, but it merely got them noticed, thanks to "Your Touch." A very accessible album, though it still pales in comparison to some of their other releases.
4Tool
10,000 Days


I've been a fan of Tool for a very long time, and while I was supremely let down in the long run by this album, its still a great addition to their canon. "Jambi" remains my favorite song on this album.
5 Liars
Drum's Not Dead


If you've listened to this, then you know, it's unquestionably their best album.
6Muse
Black Holes and Revelations


The last good album by Muse, before they became shitrock. "Exo-Politics" is great.
7Thom Yorke
The Eraser


More like a "lite" Radiohead, it still has that achy falsetto I love, and Yorke trying something new.
8The Strokes
First Impressions of Earth


Wonderful first half, poor second half. It gets lopsided as it trots along, but I still pull songs like "Juicebox" and "You Only Live Once"
9The Flaming Lips
At War With the Mystics


Another lopsided effort, but it's still a solid album by one of the greatest live acts in history.
10Isis
In the Absence of Truth


You can attribute me seeing Tool 4 times in 2006 as the reason for this, I got used to seeing them live a few times, and then the album was just as good. Great metal act, it's a shame they've called it quits.
