Boredom Leads To Lists.

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
Patrik Sjoberg

2. Love Is All - Nine Times The Same Song
Make Out Fall Out Make Up

3. Islands - Return To The Sea
Rough Gem

4. Suburban Kids With Biblical Names
Funeral Face

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
Mardy Bum

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!

Nice list. I hadn't heard that SKWBN track until just now. Also, the Mates of State show that I just went to played that AM album between every band. They kept it on repeat and I wanted to die after the second time through. I'm okay with "A Certain Romance," but not three times in a row (no joke).

But yeah, good list lol Islands are ace!

haha, yeah...I think it's been a bit overdone at this stage, too. I doubt it'll make the 2006 top 10, at this rate!

I just realised that 3 of the top 4 are Swedish. Wow, I love Sweden.

http://www.hellosurprise.com is a guide to Swedish pop music which I just found. I'll investigate further.
