In the past I think I've seen these threads at about the half way point of the year, but I guess we were slacking this year. What are your favorite albums so far this year? Here are mine: Icky Thump by The White Stripes Eardrum by Kanye West Kala by M.I.A. Boxer by The National Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga by Spoon How You Sell Soul To A Souless People Who Sold Their Soul??? by Public Enemy Wincing the Night Away by The Shins Alright, Still by Lily Allen Costello Music by The Fratellis Sound of Silver by LCD Soundsystem Finding Forever by Common Sky Blue Sky by Wilco Neon Bible by Arcade Fire The Good, the Bad & the Queen by The Good the Bad & The Queen Back to Black by Amy Winehouse Desire by Pharoahe Monch Some Loud Thunder by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah Favourite Worst Nightmare by Arctic Monkeys 23 by Blonde Redhead Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer? by Of Montreal I'll Sleep When You're Dead by El P So far, I think 2007 is shaping up to be better than 2006.
