Top Albums of 2006

Okay, its finally time for my first ever best of list. It's been a great year and I've truly enjoyed writing this page. So thanks to everyone who has read and commented on what I write!

I had initially planned to do this weeks ago, but have been so insanely busy it just hasn't happened. Anyway, I want to send out a sincere thank you to all of the bands that send me demo's and for Vice Recordings for sending out the demo's as well! So with that in mind here's my list...

Top Albums:
15. - Silversun Pickups - Carnavas
- Sickoakes - Seawards
13. - Snowden - Anti-Anti
12. - Keser - Esoteric Escape
11. - The Raconteurs - Broken Boy Soldiers
10. - TV on the Radio - Return to Cookie Mountain
9. - The Knife - Silent Shout
8. - The Thermals - The Body, The Blood, The Machine
7. - Thom Yorke - The Eraser
6. - Kooks - Inside In/Inside Out
5. - Asobi Seksu - Citrus
4. - Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say About Me...
