Great idea, let's make our own Morrissey-Solo Forum Top 100 Albums of 2006.
10 points for a number 1 and so forth, one point for number 10 and then by the end of December we count all the votes.

My top 10:

1. Ringleader of the Tormentors - Morrissey
2. Antidepressant - Lloyd Cole
3. Let's Get Out Of This Country - Camera Obscura
4. Jarvis –Jarvis Cocker
5. The Trials of Van Occupanther - Midlake
6. The Life Pursuit – Belle & Sebastian
7. Off My Rocker At The Art School Bop – Luke Haines
8. We Are The Pipettes – The Pipettes
9. The Crane Wife – The Decemberists
10. Victory For the Comic Muse – Divine Comedy
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

Hi Johann,

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.

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!

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

Oh my god. it's Robby!

A Hostage To Kindness
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).
