Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2006

I am a bit perplexed as to why there are so many albums bubbling under this year compared to earlier years.

More than 100 albums bubbling under?

It seems like too much of a "good" thing to me.

It's just that during 2006 I entered everything that had a good metacritic score directly into the final AM spreadsheet.

I don’t want to be a spoilsport, Honorio, but Long Way Home was first released on the Big Bad Love soundtrack in 2002. I love that song too. I first heard it as a very decent cover by Norah Jones on her Feels Like Home album and when I heard the Tom Waits original I was disappointed that I didn’t know about it when we did the 2002 poll. So I’m not sure if it’s eligible – unless we play the “but no one knew it was actually from a different year” card.

OK, let's play that card!! Only kidding, of course, it's already removed from my list.
I just didn't know that (by the way I'm listening now to the Norah Jones cover and I like it too).

Every year I seem to end up having at least 5 albums in my top 10 in common with the AM top 10, whether I start listening from the top of the AM list or in the “bubbling under” section or with the highest rated albums from Mali on RYM or whatever. But just when I was about to get paranoid that I’m a whore for the critics and don’t have enough of an individual taste in music, I remembered that it’s critics’ job to sift through all the crap music out there and highlight the intelligent and engaging ones. And a lot of the music that end up on AM is pretty damn good.
I’m stating the obvious here, but felt like stating it anyway.

Not that obvious, Dan M, and many thanks for your words. I kinda feel the same month after month, and often I feel guilty for my lists being too similar to the main AM list. You're right, that's what the critics are here for, to guide us through the impenetrable jungle of today's overcrowded music.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2006

Somewhat surprised by the lack of Dubstep in the lists so far. By far the most important and cutting-edge development in Electronica during the '00s, and 2006 was the year Dubstep emerged from the underground gaining wider acclaim. This makes it my favourite year of the whole decade (Gnarls Barkley's St. Elsewhere is another reason).

The Spotify link for the songs list

My favourite Spanish song of 2006: Bunbury & Vegas' "Bravo"

Talking about "Bravo" is talking about three giants. Or should I say four. First of all, let me introduce Bambino, not the singer nor the composer of the song but the performer of a passionate version released on 1967 that (no doubt) served as the main inspiration for Bunbury & Vegas. Bambino was a controversial singer, he was forced to hide his homosexuality (an unforgivable sin especially being a gypsy and more especially during Franco regime in Spain) and maybe beacuse of that tinged all his performances with rawness and character. Musically he took back to Andalusia the Barcelona rumba and deepened in its Latin American roots (like Cuban son or Mexican bolero) and in the classic Spanish copla (he recorded a lot of material from poet Rafael de León, also homosexual).
The other two giants I was talking about were two singers-songwriters of very different backgrounds that unexpectedly (and brilliantly in my opinion) decided to join forces. Enrique Bunbury is probably one of the most popular rock stars in Spain and Latin America. As leader of the band Los Héroes del Silencio (The Heroes of Silence) during the late 80s and early 90s he gained a devoted following not only in Spain, since the band even sold more than 200.000 copies in Germany of their Phil Manzanera-produced second album Senderos de traición (Paths of Betrayal, 1990). But this popularity was inversely proportional to the despise (or overtly hate) of many rock critics that bashed them for their grandiloquence. He began to slowly gain some critical respect with his solo career, especially with his third solo album "Flamingos" (2002).
Nacho Vegas traveled the opposite path till he meet Bunbury at some point in the middle of their respective ways. From the very beginning Nacho was a critics darling since his early days as a member of bands like Eliminator Jr. (noise-pop, named after a Sonic Youth song) or Manta Ray (slowcore, named after a Pixies song). Manta Ray (1995), the first album of that second band was considered by Rockdelux the #2 Spanish album of the year. His solo career began in 2001 to critical acclaim (his first three albums were always on the first positions on end-of-year lists on Rockdelux or Mondo Sonoro despite never breaking into mainstream audiences). Influenced by Leonard Cohen, Steve Van Zandt or Nick Drake, he stood out as a notable songwriter of dark and emotional lyrics.
The reasons for this meeting at the top are easily understandable: Enrique Bunbury was looking for a credibility that Vegas seemed to have it guaranteed and Nacho Vegas was looking for a wider audience that Bunbury also seemed to have it guaranteed. But one thing not so understandable was the approach they chose for their first and last (double) album together, "El tiempo de las cerezas" ("The Season of the Cherries", 2006). It was recorded in fact as two solo albums, Bunbury and Vegas sang and wrote individually every song, with only a songwriter collaboration ("Látex") and a cover ("Bravo"). Moreover, the album sequence with every individual song next to each other, with every Vegas song followed by a Bunbury one (while at the end of every album one covered a song by the other) made way to see it as a competition. Nothing wrong with that. Maybe this competitive approach (quite unusual in these kind of collaborative albums) is what makes me like this album so much.
And who was the winner? Well, seeing from the point of view of the fans of every artist (probably there were few fans of both before this album), for sure they saw his idol as the easy winner. Being myself not the biggest fan of any of them (but probably you should file me on Vegas' side), in my opinion while Bunbury was maybe a better singer and performer his abilities as songwriter (especially his overblown lyrics) paled a lot as compared to Vegas'. But I should point the fact that Bunbury put himself in a difficult position, he risked much more than Vegas here.
The cohesive factor was the excellent band behind. Especially, and here it comes the fourth giant, Paco Loco. Paco was the talented engineer and producer behind the Xixon Sound, the sound of Spain during the 90s coming from a bunch of indie bands (including manta Ray) that arised on Asturias, on the North Spanish coast. Relocated on Cádiz, on the South Spanish Coast, he has expanded his horizons including productions for American artists like Steve Wynn or Josh Rouse. A prodution by Paco Loco is now synonymous of solidness and quality. Just listen to what he did with "Bravo". Forgetting about its origins as a Mexican bolero (it was written by Mexican composer Luis Demetrio) and also about Bambino's flamenco cover (see above) he dared to board it like, let's say, a mix of "Because" and "Creep". A cathartic sound apt for one of the most intenses hate songs ever: "I hate you so much / that I got myself scared / about my way of hating".

I would have never believed
that you were going to turn it
into suffering.

I hate you so much
that I got myself scared
about my way of hating.
I wish
there won't be a place for you
when you're dead.
Hell
is heaven
compared with your soul.
And please God forgive me
for wishing you could not rest
even dead.

I hate you so much
that I got myself scared
about my way of hating.
I wish
there won't be a place for you
when you're dead.
Hell
is heaven
compared with your soul.
And please God forgive me
for wishing, not even dead,
you could not rest even dead.

Bravo!
Please let me applaud you
for your way of hurting
my feelings.



A live performance at the (beautiful) Liceu of Barcelona:

And the studio version


The rest of the Spanish Top 5 of 2005:
2. BUNBURY & VEGAS "La pena o la nada": And I saw you crying / a river on every side / of your face with make-up / like Katy Jurado / with the black clouds behind / like the black man listening to Van Zandt singing / Waiting Around to Die / like Jeanne of Arc burning / like a saint losing his faith... (hey, guys, I strongly recommend you to click on those last two links!!!)
3. STANDSTILL "1,2,3 Sol": Glasses, spoons / through your laughter life ask for my forgiveness.
4. CHRISTINA ROSENVINGE "Tok Tok": In the end you were right / you can only be reborn after humiliation.
5. BUNBURY & VEGAS "Ahora": All the things I loved in this world / were a song, a theatre and you.

4. M. WARD "Post-War"


I was starting to feel a little lonely in my appreciation of this album. I’m glad I’m not the only one who likes it.

I remember someone once commenting that M. Ward should take it easy on the helium. But I like how he sounds a bit otherworldly – on this album his voice both contrasts and compliments the carefree and sunny nature of the music and the spirited production (even if the lyrics are often the polar opposite of cheery). It sounds as if M. Ward and his band/musicians feel like jammin’ because jammin’ is fun, yet their style of jammin’ is everything but slapdash. I like that.

Hey, Dan M, you nailed it. It's amazing how he manages to sound otherwordly and easygoing at the same time, simple and sophisticated, controlled and loose. Genius.

Dan M
Wow. Thanks for those links, Honorio (especially the link and reference to Waiting Around to Die). It gave me goosebumps.

I'm glad you liked it, Dan M. In fact I just recently realized (well in fact I searched about it in Google) that the reference to Katy Jurado with the back clouds behind came from the Sam Peckimpah film (with the immortal Dylan soundtrack).
About the Van Zandt song I must admit I never heard that song until I saw it mentioned on the lyrics of the Nacho Vegas song back in 2006. I looked then in You Tube and that was it, with the black man crying (that brought tears to my eyes too). Now this song is a favourite of mine (it was in my 1968 list).
These are the advantages of the musicians that are also music nerds (just like Nacho Vegas).

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2006

Why? So Radiohead can get even more votes?

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2006

There are not really only Radiohead fans there.

3) TV on the Radio - Return to Cookie Mountain
4) Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
5) Spank Rock - Yoyoyoyo

12) Pierre Lapointe - La forêt des mal-aimés
13) The Pipettes - We Are the Pipettes
14) Girl Talk - Night Ripper

16) Beirut - Gulag Orkestar
17) Lily Allen - Alright, Still
18) Subtle - For Hero, For Fool
19) Joanna Newsom - Ys
20) ¡Forward, Russia! - Give Me a Wall

Yo La Tengo, Built to Spill and Sparklehorse deserve a nod for great consistency.

Great year, though it also the year I have been betrayed by what was then one of my favorite band, Muse, which released a terrible album (so did Lostprophets who I still enjoyed back then).
Other big disappointments include Raconteurs, Gossip (one killer, lot of fillers) and Outkast.
But worst of all, it is the year French slam hit the radio, with the teenage-diary whining of Grand Corps Malade and the poorly delivered numb texts of Abd Al Malik. And well, the incredible lack of musicality of both.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2006

Mindrocker
04. SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO-HUSTLER (single-Electronica)

Oops, I though this was released in 2007 (it was already in the Top 20 of my ongoing list of 2007).
I’m not sure if this is one of my favourite video clips but probably it’s on my list of most seen ones.

Please Petri put this song as my #17, the bottom of my Top 20 should now be:
16. HOT CHIP "And I Was a Boy From School"
17. SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO "Hustler"
18. JUNIOR BOYS "So This Is Goodbye"
19. BEIRUT "Mount Wroclai (Idle Days)"
20. TOM WAITS "Road to Peace"
Many thanks Petri (and Mindrocker). And sorry...

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2006

You're welcome, Honorio.

Too bad nobody else voted for Clint Mansell's filmscore of The Fountain. In its whole the album can be a bit repetetive, but assorted individual tracks rank among the greatest soundtrack music of the last decade.
It's too late into the month to make any diffence now, but just for the sake of it I'm going to post Death Is The Road To Awe once more, if only for the accompanying visuals, which are a piece of art in their own right.

CLINT MANSELL-Death Is The Road To Awe


Another album which sadly didn't gain much attention is the collaboration between Ethiopean saxofonist Getatchew Mekuria and Dutch noiserockers The Ex (also close peers to Sonic Youth). A highly unusual combination in Worldmusic which doesn't work in all places, but when it does it really takes off.

Does this song belong in 2005 or 2006?

Hmmm, looks like it's from

Bad luck for Cat Power.
First year since 2002 in which the winner of the album poll wasn't clear after first week (or even before voting was opened).
B&S at #4 was (pleasant) suprise for me.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2006

Aw, poor Cat Power. Since the album is probably my #11 I wish I would've voted for 11 albums.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 2006

I am presently left to wonder where this song actually placed below the top 25.

Any chance we could see an extended list of results - to say perhaps the top 50 or top 100?

Thanks so much for providing these comprehensive lists.

I wonder if there is a typo or some other reason why I can find Robyn's song "With Every Heartbeat" on the song list.

The first official release was in 2007 so we decided that it wasn't eligible last month.

#106 and #82 are the same. Great album btw.

Moonbeam
Songs:
10. My Chemical Romance - "Welcome to the Black Parade"


Desptie Moonbeam's vote for this song and my (the anti-Moonbeam's) vote (#1 for 2006), it failed to make the top 25.

I am presently left to wonder where this song actually placed below the top 25.

Any chance we could see an extended list of results - to say perhaps the top 50 or top 100?

Welcome to the Black Parade got 67 points (5 from Nick, 12 from Moonbeam and 50 from you).
I try to sent excel sheet including all the album and song polls from 00-06 to Henrik in the weekend or at least next week. But here are or the results of 06. Somehow didn't exclude Yearbook 1 by Studio (it wouldn't have changed anything).
