AND LISTS LEAD TO GREAT ALBUMS
So, pointlessly, here's my top 10 albums of the year so far, along with "key track" mp3s.
1. Hemstad - Hemstad
2. Love Is All - Nine Times The Same Song
Make Out Fall Out Make Up
3. Islands - Return To The Sea
4. Suburban Kids With Biblical Names
5. Flaming Lips - At War With The Mystics
Yeah Yeah Yeah Song
6. Danielson - Ships
Did I Step On Your Trumpet
7. Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
8. Destroyer - Destroyer's Rubies
Watercolours Into The Ocean
9. Secret Machines - 10 Silver Drops
Alone, Jealous And Stoned
10. The Vines - Vision Valley
Don't Listen To The Radio
Those 10 mp3s would make up the best compilation album 2006 has ever seen, at least for the months of January through 'til May.
And I know the Suburban Kids' record was 2005, but allow me some air!
