I'm starting our yearly question about your personal best new album for the year. So which is the best album 2006 for you?

I'm not yet decided but one of the best are

Charlotte Martin - Stromata
Heather Nova - the sorrowjoy

Sophia, Anna Ternheim and Naked Raven are nice as well.

Lou Rhodes - Beloved One

and hats off to Isobel Campbell, Sol Seppy, Glen Hansard/Marketa Irglova, The Tiny and David Kitt for a fine return to form...

Can there be a worst album vote? Red Hot Chili Peppers anyone?

Hmm..

I'd say Cat Power's The Greatest, more for her being sober and happy and going on tour than for the cd itself even tho it's great.

And probably others that i haven't even listened to..

Not my fault if JJG, Sheryl or Heather didn't release a new CD this year. There would have been more competition then

Gerd posted a Heather cd actually!

I wanted to say Fiona Apple's Extraordinary Machine but it's 2005.

To me, it is "Tom Waits - Used Songs", even if this was released a few years ago.
Male version of HN feelings...i´m simply touched by his songs....

Otherwise, Morrissey's Ringleader of the Tormentors

Since I do not count "Best of.."-releases, I'd say

Tool "10,000 days"

It's more a reading than an album as such, no? Well, nobody said it had to be music only so..

Exactly... the sorrowjoy is actually superb... mixing ambient atmosphere with her poetry... perhaps an idea for a future release could be a mixture of spoken and sung material...

Yeah, but is "sorrowjoy" an "album"?

Btw, the Sloop CD was released in 2005, but most of us got it in 2006, too.

From 2006, I love especially the new albums from Charlotte Gainsburg, Lisa Germano, Juliette And The Licks, the PJ Harvey Live DVD, the PJ Harvey Peel Sessions, and Sloop and Sorrowjoy. I guess that's all I have bought from 2006...

An "album" is a collection of something, the term more usually referred to an album or collection of photographs or stamps.

Charlotte Martin's Stromata.

I'd like to send some love, though, to Jewel's Goodbye Alice In Wonderland, Regina Spektor's Begin To Hope, Heather Nova's The Sorrowjoy cd and Nelly Furtado's Loose.
