    Default Top Three Albums of '06?

    Now that we've had a month or so to really think about it, which albums made the biggest impression on you? I would have to say:
    "Everything All The Time" by Band of Horses
    "At War With The Mystics" by The Flaming Lips and
    "You In Reverse" by Built to Spill
    (not in any particular order)

    the thermals - the body the blood the machine
    junior boys - so this is goodbye
    hot chip - the warning

    lots of others but these are probably the 3 that i enjoy nearly as much as when i first heard them.

    None Taken... I really enjoy Mystics. I dont understand how it could be viewed as "shit". I think it was a big step for the lips to continue to reinvent their sound, especially after the big "Do you realize??" boom that happened after "Yoshimi". Way more psychadelic and Experimental than Yoshimi (with the exception of "Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots pt.2"). No feelings hurt here, bro. I love that disc.

    ... I'm not one to argue and call names, by any means. but an intelligent debate is always good. Too much negativity on these boards at times... understanding that without conflicting interests or opinions, we wouldnt have a whole lot to chat about.

    I agree regarding the Flaming Lips album, it is pretty awful. Haven't really been into them since Soft Bulletin. I agree about the Boris album, it's a fucking blast.

    mine is unexpectedly eclectic, but based off of my itunes play counts (and thus not my top 3 artistic albums, but my top 3 listened to albums)

    my morning jacket - okonokos
    zero 7 - the garden
    snow patrol - eyes open

    I really like that zero 7 album. Can anyone name the artist that will be appearing solo this year at coachella who provided vocals on the zero 7 album?

    the thermals - the body, the blood, the machine
    built to spill - you in reverse
    the hold steady - boys and girls in america
