Adam Green - Jacket Full of Danger


Keane - Under the Iron Sea


Gus Black - Autumn Days


Beth Orton - Comfort of Strangers


Placebo - Meds


Tool - 10,000 Days

What's interesting is that every one of these is what I'd consider somewhat of a lesser album from each artist.  2006 has not been a banner year for me discovering new talent.

Also, it's been seven whole months without a new Ryan Adams album, and I'm starting to freak out a little.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

man, I'm just not impressed with the gnarls barkley album.  I love both ceelo, especially when goodie mobb teamed up with outkast for Dungeon Family, and Danger Mouse, but the new album just sounds so flat for me.  I don't understand how it can be considered innovative soul when there is nothing that separates it from a mountain of soul music decades ago, aside from maybe recording techniques, and I don't understand how by any standard, it can be considered interesting.  it's not bad music, but it's bland music.  I think more than anything it shows how desperately the world needs the return of funk and soul.  we still await the glorious return, but gnarls just ain't good enough.
seu jorge, make a third album.

My top 10 would look like this... I'm sure I'll revamp it, so I'll add pictures later.

10 - Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Show Your Bones

9 - Flaming Lips - At War With The Mystics

8 - Belle & Sebastian - The Life Pursuit

7 - Sufjan Stevens - Avalanche

6 - Regina Spektor - Begin To Hope

5 - The Sound of Animals Fighting - Lover, the Lord Has Left Us

4 - Mars Volta - Amputechture

3 - Murder By Death - In Bocca al Lupo

2 - Thom Yorke - The Eraser

1 - Tool - 10,000 Days

Hm... I like the albums, but I know this is going to get skewed later on.

Anyway, there are a few albums out this year where I like one song or two songs or maybe even three. Those are:

Sonic Youth - Rather Ripped (Do You Belive in Rapture)
Sunset Rubdown - Shut Up I Am Dreaming (title track)
Sufjan Stevens - The Avalanche (Springfield)
Mogwai - Mr. Beast (Acid Food)
Drive-By Truckers - (Daylight)

There are a couple that I like but doubt I'll listen to much after the next couple of months. Those are:

The Pipettes - We Are the Pipettes
Loose Fur - Born Again in the USA
Mates of State - Bring it Back
Belle & Sebastian - The Life Pursuit

And a couple that I like a lot and figure I'll be listening to for a good while. Those are:

Band of Horses - Everything All the Time
M. Ward - Post-War



So I guess I'm not a huge fan of the stuff that's come out so far. But who knows! Jason Molina (Songs:Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co. guy) has fucking six albums planned for release here soon, the Mountain Goats have a new one out in a month or whatever, Akron/Family's got one coming up, and maybe Ryan Adams will lose him mind and release eight albums in the month of October and I'll like two of'em.

Gnarls doesn't break any new ground but it is fun to listen to, in that Gorillaz sort of way.  It's in their power to turn out an amazing second album.  As far as it just being a harmless fun party album, it serves its purpose, but they're by no means the second coming.  But compared to the sorry state of blander yet more popular music that passes for funk or soul these days (Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Ashanti, Usher, etc... PRINCE can't even turn out a decent album anymore), Gnarls does stand out.
