Favoritest records of 2006, part deux!

My Favorite Albums of 2006 list has been delayed slightly by a little New Year's Illness, but I haven't forgotten about it! (Not that anyone has been waiting with bated breath.) The cold that had been clinging to Leah tighter than a baby koala but with none of the cuteness finally relinquished its grip and latched onto me with its germ-infested claws. Thankfully, I've finally shed my temporary title of "Mouthbreather" to re-enter the world of people who can breathe through their noses and thus appear to be at least 100 IQ points more intelligent.

So here's the list of the albums or EP's I enjoyed the most in 2006...the order gets a little fuzzy for me once I get past number 6, most albums could easily switch places depending on the day and my mood.

1. Peter Bjorn & John - Writer's Block
Peter Bjorn & John - Young Folks

2. TV on the Radio - Return to Cookie Mountain
TV on the Radio - Wolf Like Me

3. Belle & Sebastian - The Life Pursuit

Neko Case - Star Witness

5. Irving - Death In The Garden, Blood On The Flowers
