2006 album thing

Yes, I know a very similar thread already exists. I'm posting this up on a number of forums though and compiling the results between them:

I do this every year on the FFG forums and thought I'd branch out a bit. Basically the way this works is you list your top albums of the year up to 10, and they're awarded points based on rank. (1st place gets 10, 2nd 9, 3rd 8, etc) I'll add up the totals in January to see which album scores the highest. I know there's still a month to go, but you can edit your list any time.

You're allowed to pick more than 10. Your top 10 will gain points as described above, and every album listed whether in the top 10 or not gets 1. So in other words 1st through 10th get 11-2 points and then an unlimited number of albums can get 1. This ought to work out for the better since I don't expect many people will have the same albums in their top 10.

I'll follow this post up with my choices as soon as I can think of them. You can edit your choices up through December 31st, after which point I'll tally what I see.

I know you don't all have the same tastes as me, but here's a list I made of all the bands I could think of that came out with an album in 2006. It ought to help get the ball rolling for some of you at least. These aren't my actual choices. I haven't even heard some of them yet.

Here's a rough draft of my list. I need to re-listen to an awful lot before I can finalize anything. I've unfortunately failed to get a hold of In the Absence of Truth by Isis, but if it's anything in keeping with their prior efforts it would make my top 10. I'll have to work without it for the moment though, and a number of other cds that I'm sure I'll love as soon as I can get them. That being the case, here's my initial list, prone to massive change. 2006 has been a fabulous year in music.

1. Red Sparowes - Every Red Heart Shines Toward the Red Sun

2. Agalloch - Ashes Against the Grain

3. The Decemberists - The Crane Wife

4. Built To Spill - You in Reverse

5. Drudkh - Blood In Our Wells

6. Blind Guardian - A Twist in the Myth

7. Korpiklaani - Tales Along This Road

8. Lordi - The Arockalypse

9. Ihsahn - The Adversary

10. The Absence - From Your Grave

Runners up: (1 point each)

11. Cracker - Greenland

12. Xasthur – Subliminal Genocide

13. Converge - No Heroes

14. Two Trains - Two Trains

15. Wolves in the Throne Room - Diadem of 12 Stars
