Please don't be offended because I think it's so bad, and you don't.  It's a criticism of the CD and not of you and your tastes.

I'm not offended, I could hardly expect everyone to agree with everything I think, I just had to ask for something more than "It's shit". Thank you kindly.

If you look back and see who the initial one word review of "shit" was posted in response to, you may realise that they are , and particularly at the time were, fond of posting short flammatory opinions in other threads. It was more a case of taking advantage of the situation and doing the same in return.

I've bought quite a few albums this year,... but very few actually from this year. Of those, the worst might be Love travels at illegal speed- Graham Coxon... although maybe I've not listened to it enough. The best that I bought is The Life Aquatic studio sessions - Seu Jorge. smile.gif

TV On The Radio-Return To Cookie Mountain
Avant-garde genius, now with added Bowie.

Howling Bells-Howling Bells
Amazing live and just as wonderful on record.

Monkey Swallows The Universe-The Bright Carvings
An astonishing folk band with beautiful melodies and Sheffield-centric lyrics.

Guillemots-Through The Windowpane
As good as they always promised it would be.

The Decemberists-The Crane Wife
Better than Picaresque.

Primal Scream-Riot City Blues
One of the best rock and roll records of recent years.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah-Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
A great album. The NME stopped championing them when they ignored them and wouldn't do interviews, making me love them all the more.

Shack-The Corner of Miles and Gil
Psychedelic songs about bondage and LCD in cups of tea from the band that backed Arthur Lee in his later years.

Sufjan Stevens-The Avalanche
Worth it for the three versions of Chicago, but the rest of the album is also as wonderful. Not as good as Illinois, but his even his offcuts piss on everyone else.

Gnarls Barkley-St. Elsewhere
Sublime.

On the first listen, maybe. But it's a real grower, and one of those albums where you forget just how good it is until you listen to it again.

I'm finding it difficult to list any albums in either category. This year I've bought considerably fewer albums than since I started buying them - saving money and all - and of the CDs I did buy, none stand out in the way the best of 2005 did.

However, 2007 should bring a glut of my favourite artists' work including Echaskech, Underworld, Ulrich Schnauss and Jon Hopkins. Woot.

I think it was a really dissapointing year though, last year was sooo much better: Bloc Party, and the album of the millenium (apart from kid a and amnesiac) Funeral by The Arcade Fire...

Possibly, I read somewhere that their next album is due in January, which they quoted as being released ''Only 10 months after their debut'' and since I couldn't remember exactly when I bought it I used that as a guide.

It's still a great album though and my mistake is not quite as great as Rolling Stone calling London Calling the greatest album of the 80s.
