Are you on the list?

The blog Heart On A Stick undertook the massive task of aggregating year-end lists from 640 music sites and compiling them into a master consensus. TV on the Radio's Return to Cookie Mountain took the crown by a resounding margin (250 points,) which is hardly a surprise. While your humble drake missed the first round (12/21,) my list made the cut the second time around (with 640 sources, I'd be a bit depressed if it didn't ;)

Playlist: Best Albums from 2006 - Bloggregate

A lot of interesting data can be mined from the aggregate data. For instance, the album with the highest average ranking was one not many folks (including myself) have had the opportunity to hear, and that's The Veils' second release Nux Vomica, which is currently only available via import (on Rough Trade.) That's one that will definitely make next year's annual best of the year (not from the year) list.

For more useful data, head over to Heart on a Stick's Bloggregate.
