    Hi Johann,
    Interesting to see you include the Lloyd Cole album. I like loads of his 80's stuff but find the solo albums quiet patchy. I've only heard woman in a Bar off the new one which I must admit I thought was pretty good. Are the other songs up to that standard or is that the standout song?

    As for my list; well I've only bought about 8 albums and only really like a handful of those so here's my top 5:

    1. The Concretes: In Colour
    2. We are the Pipettes: The Pipettes
    3. Ringleader of the tomatoes: Morrissey
    4. Fur coat: Jenny Lewis
    5. Under the Atlantic: Keane

    I think it is his best, and most consistent, solo album since 1994's Love Story, which was also really good. Woman In A Bar is indeed one of the highlights, as are NYC Sunshine, How Wrong Can You Be?, The Young Idealists and Rolodex Incident.

    But really, apart from one song, I think they are all really strong.

    What? It's a phenomenal song. Probably the best up-tempo one of the year.

    I don't listen to enough new music to come up with a top ten for 2006, but I can for the past 5 years (2002-2006), I know, that's a bit long of a time period, but I spend too much time listening to Morrissey to focus on inferior stuff.

    1: Morrissey - Ringleader of the Tormentors
    2: My Chemical Romance - The Black Parade
    3: Weezer - Make Believe
    4: Green Day - American Idiot
    5: My Chemical Romance - Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge
    6: Morrissey - You Are the Quarry
    7: Weezer - Maladroit
    8: Fall Out Boy - From Under the Cork Tree
    9: Duran Duran - Astronaut
    10 is a real wild card because no other album strikes me as being of consistent enough quality to be on the list, and any attempt at picking one just suggests too many candidates.

    Thanks for that. If it has a few songs which are as good as Woman In A Bar I think I'll risk it! Lloyd still has a great way with words doesn't he?
    BTW (and excuse the extreme pedantic...ness) but I think Love Story was 1995!

    The best album of 2007 will be I Am Kloot by the way... mark my words.

    I think Gorillaz Demon Days is the best album from that whole time period. With Blur's Think Tank following close behind.

    I can't think of five let alone ten albums. 2006 was a dreadful year for music. The only albums I can think of that I was truly impressed by were Nux Vomica by The Veils, and First Impressions of Earth by The Strokes (it counts since it was released here on January 2nd... or maybe it was the 3rd, but either way).
