Best Tracks of 06?

Great year in music; any music. Time to review:

What do you think are the 10 best tracks released in 06 so far? What upcoming tracks (Aside from the upcoming U2 track) are you most looking forward to? What do you think the best album is? This biggest dissapointment?

1. The Adventure - Angels & Airwaves
2. Read My Mind - The Killers
3. Message To The Boys - The Replacements
4. Crazy Bitch - Buckcherry
5. Lately - Soul Asylum
6. All Is Well - Soul Asylum
7. Hands Open - Snow Patrol
8. A Little's Enough - Angels & Airwaves
9. Bling - The Killers
10. In The Sun (Live) - Michael Stipe & Coldplay

Best album, Angels & Airwaves: We Don't Need To Whisper
Worst: Keane: Under The Iron Sea

Man this board is getting pointless. If you don't have a post count in the thousands and a complete loser life to match, you're derided. Gets really tiring mocked by nerds and spoiled brats. I'd love to see the amount of people who in real life would say the things they say here.

But then again, people who respond like this in real life probably don't have a lot of people to talk to.

Some mod just close this thread now.

That was completely uncalled for.

Snowlock, there is no reason this thread can't remain here...provided we just move directly on to the topic after I post this.

Hey Snowlock,

This is a worthy, relevant thread, and it should stay open because it'll create good discussion.

Let's keep it nice, people.

This is a ctually a good thread idea&i'd just ignore any cynical meanies

So, i'd say that one of my contenders that i can think of is one of the singles so far by The Feeling, fab songs they have

you're right. i should have said something more along the lines of "hooray! another list thread masquerading as an actual discussion!"

i'm going to play nicely now, but i can't think of anything i've ever said here that i wouldn't say in real life. unless you turned out to be jack bauer, then i guess you'd probably shoot me.

(i'd also say this stuff, but ironically i think the rate at which i go on about bands that most people i know don't really care about, i think the following is more likely to get me punched in the face than some of my bullshit)

the briggs - common & unknown

this song is excellent. i expected a load of crap from the new briggs album, despite that i really loved numbers and leaving the ways. it's really good, and this is only one of many awesome songs on it. i was quite impressed.

street dogs - not without a purpose

also something i feared would disappoint. their first album was brilliant, the second good but it grew on me enough that i can't even chose which of those two i like more. "not without a purpose" is probably the catchiest track, but there are so many awesome songs on the album. i can't wait to be able to get an actual copy, all i've got now is leaked soulseek mp3s.

street dogs - there is power in a union

billy bragg's version is excellent, but theirs got me jumping around the room the first time i listened to it. no joke. it's a good thing i was alone.


bouncing souls - so jersey

as much as i liked the album, it was kind of disappointing. there are probably three songs on it i really care to listen to after hearing the thing a few times. the progression between the gold record and anchors aweigh feels like good, honest musical growth. there's a lot to be said for that. that takes more balls than being nickelback and putting out 12 of the same songs on 3 different cds. but "so jersey" is really the only song that stands out for me. "the messenger" is cool.

anything off either the ducky boys the war back home or mark lind's death or jail. everything that guy does is pure rock n roll bliss.

roger miret & the disasters put out a new album that i haven't listened to that much yet (just got it yesterday). but from what i gather, it's damn good. maybe even matches the first one. way better than their second album.

and i still can't remember/am too lazy to check whether the springsteen seeger sessions came out this year or last (i said the same thing in another thread, but i'm also too lazy to see if anyone corrected me).

Coming soon, Warcraft IV: Knights of Cydonia.

Oh yes well let's get moving.

Um, Guillemots' single 'We're Here' is fantabulous. James Dean Bradfield's 'Emigre' is a pop masterpiece.

The Strokes - 'You Only Live Once' is brilliant.

Snow Patrol's duet with Martha Wainwright on 'Set the Fire to the Third Bar' is a nice curiosity.

Quite a bit of 'The Life Pursuit' album is stellar but 'Sukie in the Graveyard' is my favourite so I'll go for that.

'Love Like Winter' by AFI is a great, poppy little track with one killer chorus; too bad the 'cool' kids here won't enjoy it.

And of course, 'Crazy'. And if the Jay-Z album keeps its intended release date of November I think we may hear some stellar singles from it.

Edit: And because I dislike criticising stuff I haven't actually heard, I decided to go to youtube and actually hear 'Knights of Cydonia' for myself.

It was actually not bad, good even, until the singing started. It's come to the point where I find CRAIG Bellamy more tolerable than Matthew.

So yes that's actual a semi-compliment.
