I can't believe that no one has mentioned Endless Wire by The Who. That one is easily the best album I've heard this year. I would have to give second place to Yorke's Eraser.

In a year where i found little music with staying power, this is what I keep going back to.

Mute Math - my most exciting band in several years, especially live

Destroyer - Destroyer's Rubies. Dan Bejar scares me and inspires me.

The Hold Steady - Boys and Girls in America. Addictive, arena-size classic guitar chops with some of the best lyrics being written today.

Lemonheads. Evan Dando was a staple in my stereo during the 90's, but his last solo album sucked. My hopes were not high, but this album gets better with repeated listens. This may be his best work.

Appleseed Cast - Peregrine. I just got this, so I don't know how it'll hold up over time, but it's good.

2006 wasn't really a memorable year in music for me, but there were a few noteworthy exceptions.
Pearl Jam's self titled album was great and I was glad to see them put out new music.
The Red Hot Chili Pepper's Stadium Arcadium was also really good.
Of course, there's no denying that Crazy by Gnarls Barkley was easily the song of the year.

My two favorites of 2006 were the new releases by
1. Kevin Federline
2. Clay Aiken

Who says 2006 wasn't a great year in music?
These are both classics

I'm late to the party, but whatever.


Tom Petty's Highway Companion is awesome. That album makes a case for its own presence on any best-of list, and nothing I could say would be stronger than listening to it.

My only genuinely new addition to the list would be Iron Maiden's A Matter of Life and Death. This album is easily their best work since Number of the Beast. Of course, everybody has a thumb up their ass and never has anything good to say about anything remotely related to metal so they miss out on the good works when they do come along. While it make not be unique for uniqueness sake (which seems to be popular lately, but I would argue has extremely limited merit) it isn't purely rehashing things that have been done before, and the music isn't ostentatious and arrogant showmanship, although that isn't to deny its complexity nor the talents of the band. The album is lyrically strong, the vocals are dynamite, the songs work well as a cohesive unit which makes this a strong album, the songs stand strongly alone as singnles, and all the while do not sound like they're all the same song. This album is for Maiden what How To Dismantle an Atomic bomb was not for U2. Mind you, I doubt that less than 10 active posting members were even aware maiden released an album this year.

Yep. I agree. Highway Companion is a fantastic album.

Totally agree with you on this one ....I've only just discovered her and i'm totally captivated. Think it could have sneaked in as my cd of the year, that is alongside Damien Rice "9".

Other faves : Snow Patrol - Eyes Open and Grant Lee Phillips Nineteeneighties (I know Grant's is a collection of covers and hardly deserves to be in a 2006 list but what an amazing collection of 80's songs...absolutely loved it)
