So /mu/, what's the best album of 2006?
I'm trying to choose between Ys, Grandeur of Hair, Harmony in Ultraviolet, and The Dance of the Moon and the Sun.
Would anyone like to suggest some albums to be 2006's AOTY? I'm honestly leaning more towards Grandeur of Hair or Ys.
1. Pic related
2. The Knife - Silent Shout
3. Tim Hecker - Harmony in Ultraviolet
4. Dangers - Anger
5. Jay Reatard - Blood Visions
The only album of 2006 that got millions of people to change how they dressed and acted.
this is a fucking great album
For me it's this one, though I haven't heard a lot of albums from 2006.
Current 93 - Black Ships Ate The Sky
9 other good things from 2006 to round out a top 10 in no particular order:
alcian blue - s/t
asobi seksu - citrus
creech holler - with signs following
final fantasy - he poos clouds
hammers of misfortune - the locust years
my brightest diamond - bring me the workhorse
oxford collapse - remember the night parties
pretty & nice - pink & blue
xiu xiu - the air force
ayy fuckos, 2006 was one of the best years in music in that decade

and several more, including many that nearly topped best-of lists that I've never even heard of. You literally have to be a 12-year-old browsing /mu/ that just listens to muh Death Grips to not think this wasn't a great year
yeah 2006 was pretty terrible the only album I can even think of from that year that I like is House arrest
1. Christine Sehnaoui - A second Shadow
2. Keith Rowe & Toshimaru Nakamura - Between
3. Jason Lescalleet - The Pilgrim
4. Olivia Block - Heave To
5. Evan Parker - Time Lapse
btw Intimate Rituals sucks
Silent Shout is the best album of the decade for me.
Ys is remarkable too.
>(A) Senile Animal
Very good one, but not quite "album of the year".
>Current 93 - Black Ships Ate The Sky
Great choice too.
