7 Favorite albums of 2006

I've been alerted that if I don't post one of these before the end of the year, the music blogger community will shun me. Even more.

Eh, what the heck. Here are 7:

  • Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
    They're not as good as the hype would make them out to be, but this album is still excellent. And it's their debut album?

  • The Bamboo Kids - Feel Like Hell
    Is this a cheat? Most of these songs were released on "This Ain't No Revolution" in Europe last year. Whatever. It's still a lot of fun.

  • The Decemberists - The Crane Wife
    Prog-rock sea shanties. Put that way, it sounds really unappealing, but it's actually all kinds of awesome

  • Gnarls Barkley - St. Elsewhere
    "Crazy" is this year's "Hey Ya!" How can you not like it?

  • Earl Greyhound - Soft Targets
    Have I mentioned how Earl Greyhound is all kinds of awesome?

  • The Hold Steady - Boys and Girls in America
    They don't sound alike, but thematically, this is the cool uncle to the Arctic Monkeys album

  • The Raconteurs - Broken Boy Soldiers
    Straight-up straight-forward fun

And the "It was released last year, but I didn't get it and listen obsessively until this year" album of the year is Devin Davis - Lonely People of the World, Unite!
