Best of 2006 - #30-21

30) The Twilight Singers – Powder Burns
Greg Dulli opts for rock as his anti-drug. Makes a good decision and a good album.

29) Peter Bjorn and John – Writer’s Block
Guys name band after themselves, release fine pop record.

28) Spank Rock – YoYoYoYoYo
Baltimore duo raps about sex, sex, and sex, done with solid rhymes and outstanding production.

27) Gnarls Barkley – St. Elsewhere
Cee-Lo and Danger Mouse take American radio by storm, go on excellent costumed tour. The CDs not bad either.

26) T.I. – King
Rubber band man decides to step up and claim his throne. One of the most triumphant albums I’ve ever heard.

25) Apparat & Ellen Allien – Orchestra of Bubbles
Powers team up to release electronic gem. Vocal tracks prove to be standouts on this excellent collaboration.

24) Lupe Fiasco – Food & Liquor
Hip hop newcomer lacks hooks, still releases one of the best, lyrically smart hip hop CDs of the year.

23) Joanna Newson – Ys
People go head over heals for indie girl who plays the harp. Refuse to believe this, and then discover it’s actually a pretty damn good CD. Not so good for parties though.

22) The Roots – Game Theory
The Roots release another great, politically charged album. Suggest hip hop may not be dead.

21) Yo La Tengo - I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your Ass
Old band summarizes their collection with the CD name of the year.
