Favorite Albums 2006
When trying to write this list I originally wanted to say something about each album. Obviously that didn’t work out, there is too much that I have to say. I couldn’t even limit it to ten. All that really needs to be said is that these are the albums that instantly moved me and convinced me of their brilliance. These are the albums I listened to the most. These are the albums that after repeated listens, still intrigue me.
