Your Top Albums Of 2006 So Far?

Recommended Posts

I haven't heard any exceptional albums from 2006 yet.


You should know by now I hate most of everything.

What do you like?

Quite a few bands, but even bands that I like didn't release anything mind-blowing in 2006.


There's a scale by which I decide on the quality of any album.


If I like every single song on it, and there's not a single track that I would rather skip than listen to, it's a perfect album; of the hundreds of albums that I have, there's only one I can name off the op of my head that comes close to that (and it's not from 2006).


Then there are the great albums, on which there are between 1 and 3 songs I would rather skip than listen to.


If there are 4 songs to 1/2 of the album in total (rounding up for albums with an odd number of tracks) that I would skip rather than listen to, it's a good album.


Below that, reaching all the way down to 3 or 4 listable songs makes an album ok/mediocre.


If there are only 1 or 2 good songs, it's a poor album.


And if there aren't any good songs it obviously totally blows.

Yeah, I'm kinda grossed out at how much Nelly Furtado seemingly sold out. She went from this cute, boho sorta girl, with an interesting voice to


To someone with skanky vocals, clothes, crappy covers, who can't dance (Did you see the Maneater video? Can you say Elaine Dance? *shudder*)
