Stick a 'fork in 2006

Pitchfork revealed their Top 50 albums yesterday, but I was too busy finishing my own list to take note.

Playlist: Pitchfork Top 50 Albums 2006

The surprise comes that it's not TVOTR or The Hold Steady or Joanna Newsom on top, all favorites of other lists. Sweden's The Knife tops the list with the twisted electro-pop album Silent Shout. For the record I loved it, but think that it will turn out much like P'Fork's pick from 2003, The Rapture's Echoes, which in retrospect was just a fine album, not a 'list topper.' To quote a shirt I once read: "Seemed like a good idea at the time"

Full listing here.

My top albums of 2006
