    Funny, I'd have had YYY's in my biggest dissappointment section. My faves so far have been Nathan Fake and Film School.

    Aside from the ones already mentioned I'd have to go for; Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan - Ballad of the Broken Seas TV On The Radio - Return to Cookie Mountain Hot Chip - The Warning Howe Gelb - Sno Angel Like You Thom Yorke - The Eraser Belle & Sebastian - The Life Pursuit ...and in terms of hip-hop; Murs & 9th Wonder - Murray's Revenge Ugly Duckling - Bang for the Buck The Coup - Pick a Bigger Weapon ...and in term of albums that were released in their domestic countries last year but which only secured an European release this year; Love Is All - Nine Times That Same Song The Spinto Band - Nice and Nicely Done Broken Social Scene - Broken Social Scene Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - Clap Your Hands Say Yeah The Yeah Yeah Yeahs album is solid but it's not a patch on their earlier efforts. I finally got to see them play in New York last month and it was one of the most anti-climatic gigs I've ever being to. They were playing in a massive room and with the exception of the front two rows no-one was moving an inch (and this was a home town gig for f*ck's sake). Their new material sounded very unexciting live.

    It's boring. They've totally lost their edge and the passion and energy that made the first album so good.

    stroller: no one moves at gigs in NYC. It's against the rules.

    Not so. I saw both Jurassic 5 and LCD Soundsystem there in 2005 and at both gigs the entire crowd were going apesh*t. The new yeah Yeah Yeah songs just don't rock live.

    What's with all the anti-YYYs comments. They're a GOOD BAND. Their latest albums has got UNIVERSAL PRAISE. What gives?? Of all the crappy, over-hyped and overrated bands out there you take out your ire on one of the few truly interesting bands and a pretty unique frontperson to boot!! Bizarre.

    seen YYYs at Primavera a couple of weeks ago, turned out to be one of the highlights. Incredibly polished live and seem to be very comfortable in their own skin. Plus yer wan has great stage presence and charisma, added to the intensity of the whole thing...bounding around like an energizer bunny so she was. Will be looking forward to seeing them again at the lecky picnic. Also I think their drummer is a savage...subtle but really drives their sound.

    Indeed it does, in fact I'm now existing entirely on a diet of maple syrup, imagining that the current world cup is being played on ice with a puck and sticks and only chasing women from Montreal.

    favourite album of the year so far for me is belle & sebastian, the life pursuit. still hooked on it, its a great summer record so if the weather keeps up it might never leave the cd player, also redneck manifesto - seven stabs (ok mini album but f**k it, its great)

    I havent bought many new albums this year, but I'm pretty sure that either the James Dean Bradfield or Hope Of The States albums will be my favourite for 2006. Probably HOTS.

    Band Of Horses, Everything all the Time is getting alot of airplay between my temples these days. Best piece of Americana since Mercury Rev's Deserters songs.

    Agreed. Just gets better with every listen.
