Rockdelux Best of 2006

I don’t own yet the January issue of Rockdelux (I’m a suscriptor and I receive the magazine by ordinary mail about day 7-15 of every month) but I’ve found the list of international and Spanish albums in a musical forum (http://muzikalia.com/foro_leermensajes.php?ref_foro=6&ref_mensaje=9255&numero=141&paginaanterior=15). But they posted only the artists and not the name of the albums so I’m not sure at all if the lists are correct.

And the spanish music lists...

Well, and one more. I can't resist to trancribe the songs included in the compilation "Momentos 2006" (2006 Moments). Rockdelux every January (and February from 2005) compiles in a CD some of the best songs of the year. Usually the compilation is not as good as one can expect (for licenses reasons, I suppose), leaving outside many good songs. But this 2006 the CD is consistenly good, especially the first half. If the February CD is half as good, I just can't wait...
