Another Top 10 List for 2006

by Tim Smith

I was just thinking about this today, wondering if I'd be able to dork out and provide another top ten list. May the tradition continue.

Top 10 albums, 200sizix:
1.Thom Yorke- The Eraser
2. Beck- The Information
3. TV on the Radio- Return to Cookie Mountain
4. Sonic Youth- Rather Ripped
5. M. Ward- Post War
6. My Morning Jacket- Okonokos
7. The Flaming Lips- At War with the Mystics
8.Phoenix- It\'s Never Been Like That
9. Built to Spill- You in Reverse (....on strength of 1st song alone)
10. Gnarls Barkley- St. Elsewhere.... although I half expect 'crazy' to start blaring during Valtrex commercials, etc... during a kayaking/ jogging on the beach scene would make sense...

Honorable Mentions:
The Mars Volta- Amputechre (these guys have officially gone off the deep end to some sort of heroin induced darkside, but liked the album more than i thought it would at the end of the day)

Kevin Federline- Playing with Fire

Trail of Dead- So Divided...... haven't even listened to it yet, but even if it's a piece of crap, i feel obligated b/c of 'source tags and codes' might be terrible, who knows.

Girl Talk- Night Ripper

Biggest Disappointments:
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Stadium Arcadium--overall, bland, generic, doodoo.....double albums are never as good.... there are a couple of great songs, but totally lost interest

The Stills- Without Feathers - some of my friends like it- i loved their first album- but this shit is just terrible.

The Walkmen- can\'t remember the name...same story as the Stills... not nearly as bad, though
