2006: Exitfare's Favorite Albums

The hardest thing about putting this year's list together was the fact that there was no clear cut #1 one album, and that is not an indictment on the qualtiy of the records at the top of my list, but a statement at how good the top five records are. I really could make a case for any of those albums to be at the top.

As for my typical show previews post, there isn't much going on this week. Stay tuned later this week, as I'll start looking at some of the good stuff coming up next year. BTW, a huge thank you to Vicki over at Onward Charles for getting that banner up for me!

It's strange how similar my Top 25 is to yours... except for your numbers 7-15.
