Filed under: — adrian @ 12:59 pm

I’m working on my top albums of 2006 list. I’ll have my list posted probably Thursday because I need to have it done Wednesday for my “Top Albums/ Releases of 2006” special on my radio show. In the meantime, though, here is a list of some good albums from 2006. Have I missed any? What are your favorites?

In no particular order:

  • Eric Bachmann To the Races
  • Hold Steady Boys and Girls in America
  • Girl Talk Night Ripper
  • Damien Jurado And Now That You’re In My Shadow
  • Beirut Gulag Orkestar
  • Sufjan Stevens Avalanche
  • Sufjan Stevens Songs for Christmas box set
  • Long Winters Putting the Days to Bed
  • Cat Power The Greatest
  • David Bazan Fewer Moving Parts EP
  • Soft Drugs In Moderation EP
  • Johnny Cash American V
  • Mountain Goats Get Lonely
  • Fionn Regan End of History (came out in england at least)
  • Bishop Allen Month EPs
  • ms john soda notes and the like
  • Danielson Ships
  • V/A Eccentric Soul 9: Big Mack Label
  • V/A Eccentric Soul 11: Good God! a Gospel Funk Hymnal
  • Elvis Perkins Ash Wednesday
  • Built to Spill You in Reverse
  • Album Leaf Into the Blue Again
  • Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy The Letting Go
  • Swan Lake Beast Moans
  • Belle and Sebastian Life Pursuit
  • Mates of State Bring it Back
  • Mogwai Mr. Beast
  • Centro-Matic Fort Recovery


[Also, I’ve been rediculous this year in CD purchasing. The only albums among that list that I don’t personally own: Fionn Regan, ms john soda, Danielson, V/A Big Mack, Built to Spill, Belle and Sebastian, Centro-Matic. I’ve heard all of those extensively, though.]
