Rock Insider's Top 25 Albums of 2006


My Girlfriend - Neko Case

I have been a total slacker getting this list posted. It's been completed for well over 2 weeks. No excuses. Without further ado - I proudly present Rock Insider's Top 25 Albums of 2006.

Yeah yeah - I know "Year End Lists" are done to death and everyone has an opinion of what albums should and SHOULD NOT be in a certain list. My End Of The Year list is comprised solely of albums I listened to on repeat, albums that made me cry, albums that made me dance with hairbrushes, and albums that keep me blogging everyday. This list is "What Made JAX Tick" in 2006.

I fully encourage all of you to leave your Best Albums of 2006 in the replies.

ROCK INSIDER'S TOP 25 ALBUMS OF 2006




1. Neko Case - Fox Confessor Brings The Flood [iTUNES] [EMusic] [InSound] [AmpCamp]

[MP3] Neko Case - Star Witness

It really doesn't get any better than my girlfriend - Neko Case. I bought Neko Case's Fox Confessor Brings The Flood at Amoeba Records on a cold Sunday night back in March. I put in my stereo and instantly fell deeply madly in love with Neko Case's robust voice and simply fantastic lyrics. I've been asked several times this year what "My Favorite Album Thus Far" has been and Neko consistently won.

My marriage proposal still stands Neko.

Goodness. Was there some kind of rule that all bloggers could only choose from 50 different albums? I've seen all these on other lists. (Of course, I blame them, not you.)
