Canadian CD- Smile, It's The End Of The World by Hawk Nelson
American CD- There's just sooooooooooo many...
South African CD- I Stand For You by Tree63
Jamaican CD- Introducing Ayiesha Woods by, obviously, Ayiesha Woods
British CD- There's just so many...

I've heard of Ayiesha Woods and Hawk Nelson, don't know who they are mind. Other than that I've never heard of any of those people. What sort of music do you listen to? Then again, I tend to explore past music rather than listening to what's being released.

If I had to give a vote for album of the year, it'd be Medz by Placebo.

Yeh, I've spent a lot of time listening to the Beatles and Monkees and Byrds. What was with misspelled animal names back then?

Bingo! If you want to find quality music with substance and originality then you have to look pretty deep. About 98% of mainstream music is pure garbage.

I'll agree with you there, and even when you look past mainstream music, to the alternative scene, it's equally garbage (and usually very genre specific), so you must look beyond that..

I do have a soft spot for placebo, as stated, other good albums this year:

Takk by Sigur Ros was ok, but probably their worst album to date.

and eh... that's about it I think.

Oh, The Roads Don't Love You by Gemma Hayes, I like too.

Bought GO-Newsboys for my wife for Christmas.


Comming Up to Breath- Mercy Me (mine)

I'd like to get Scott Stapp's albums since he went solo.

CREED was my band!

I vote for none of the music in 2006. By far the worst year for music in a long time.

I wasn't aware that there's been any good music since, oh, 1984 or so. :lol:

Before you sold your Epiphone?







I got a Raymond Scott CD for christmas, he did experimental jazz fused with classic in the 1940s.

The newest CDs I have heard latley was a Les Claypool one and that "WolfMother" one didn't buy any.

I think I should listen to a little more newer stuff. I kind of got bummed at new music when a couple of my favorite bands broke up.

I agree with the general concenses just don't like most of what's out there.

Yup, I listened to it just a little on the interweb. I'm not a fan but it's not too bad for new stuff.

The video for the one song "the phantom patriot" is kind of artsy.

Ya I own it, however his other work is probably better. He is one of the greatest bassists to ever live.
