The first blow to ROTT in the end of year lists: it doesn't make the Uncut best 50 albums of 2006. Ridiculously early I agree, but there you go.

Incidentally: You Are The Quarry did make Uncut's 2004 list.

Here is the entire list:
1 Bob Dylan Modern times
2 Scritti politti White bread, black beer
3 Avatar Comets on fire
4 Joanna Newsom Ys
5 Neil Young Living with war
6 Arctic monkeys Whatever people say I am, that's what I'm not
7 Midlake The trials of Van Occupanther
8 Hot chip The warning
9 Sufjan Stevens The avalanche
10 Thom Yorke The eraser
11 Flaming lips At war with the mystics
12 Bonnie 'Prince' Billy The letting go
13 Lindsey Buckingham Under the skin
14 Cat power The greatest
15 Brightback mornig light Brightback mornig light
16 Raconteurs Broken boy soldiers
17 Ali Farka TourÚ Savane
18 CSS Cansei de Ser Sexy
19 Beck The information
20 Burial Burial
21 Vetiver To find me gone
22 Espers Espers II
23 Ghostface killah Fishscale
24 Howlin' rain Howlin' rain
25 Scott Walker The drift
26 TV on the radio Return to Cookie mountain
27 Yo la tengo I am not afraid of you, and I can beat your ass
28 Tom Waits Orphans : brawlers, bawlers and bastards
29 Oakley Hall Second guessing
30 Neko Case Fox confessor brings the flood
31 Mastodon Blood mountain
32 Johnny Cash American V : a hundred highways
33 Clap your hands say yeah Clap your hands say yeah
34 Grandaddy Just like the fambly cat
35 Sonic youth Rather ripped
36 Scissor sisters Ta-dah
37 Outkast Idlewild
38 Lily Allen Alright, still
39 Lambchop Damaged
40 Joan as police woman Real life
41 Jenny Lewis and the Watson twins Rabbit fur coat
42 Donald Fagen Morph the cat
43 Bruce Springsteen We shall overcome : the Seeger sessions
44 Kasabian Empire
45 Walkmen A hundred miles off
46 Band of horses Everything all the time
47 Gnarls barkley St Elsewhere
48 Muse Black holes and revelations
49 Belle and Sebastian The life pursuit
50 Drive-by truckers A blessing and a curse
 
You may well find that a lot of the "artists" (I use this term very loosely in some cases) featured on the list were probably featured on their free cd's. Which most months,it has to be said,consists of music that is fairly bland and lacking in any inspiration.

Hmmm....I just read the list to my missus, and she said "Is this an old person's magazine?". Having said that, I did buy the Joanna Newsom album today, and it's very good indeed.

Don't ask
Hmm... I like Dylan and all, but choosing Modern Times as no. 1 album of the year is rather... reactionary? embarrassing? useless? It's more or less like saying "We gave up on popular music, thank you very much". And how can they not have the Hold Steady's new album on the list?
 

Gregor Samsa

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.
Bollocks... All the right indie shite.... A big yawn escapes from my mouth....

Kasabian??????????????????????????
How on earth did they make it in the Top 50? I'd rather listen to fingernails being scraped down a blackboard.
