  • Favorites of 2006!

    29 Dic 2006, 21:38

    Well, it seems another year has passed! Which means... another top 10 of the year list! Unfortunately for those who want reviews or such things, I'm terrible at writing them so you'll have to do without! Anywho, here's my favorite 10 albums of 2006:

    1. Sodom - Sodom
    2. Echo Of Dalriada - Jégbontó
    3. Benighted - Identisick
    4. Falconer - Northwind
    5. Loudness - Breaking the Taboo
    6. Heavenly - Virus
    7. Luna Ad Noctum - The Perfect Evil in Mortal
    8. Cellador - Enter Deception
    9. Elvenking - The Winter Wake
    10. Edguy - Rocket Ride

    Well, that's quite a change from last year's list, isn't it? That's just the kind of year this has been! I really slacked off on listening to new metal albums last year so I made sure to listen to lots this year. Not that there weren't any good albums released outside of metal, just none that I liked as much as these.

    Also, like last year, I'm going to do a top 10 for singles as well, since there were a lot of really good ones this year. And here they are:

    1. 堀江由衣 - ヒカリ
    2. 平野綾 - 冒険でしょでしょ?
    3. タイナカサチ - disillusion
    4. 石川智晶 - 美しければそれでいい
    5. 奥華子 - 小さな星
    6. 樹海 - あなたがいた森
    7. 椎名へきる - Power of Love
    8. Berryz工房 - ジリリ キテル
    9. モーニング娘。 - SEXY BOY ~そよ風に寄り添って~
    10. 久住小春 - バラライカ

    Interesting, no? Well... maybe not. But that's beside the point. In any case, that's how I saw this year in music! Hopefully 2007 will be even better!
