Elitist .45’s 2006 Best In Music

Being Elite Opinion's Editor-In-Chief requires a nearly inhuman dedication to more than any one single genre. And at the close of every year the result is a uniquely well-rounded compilation of Elitism spanning all of today's most virile and powerful music mediums.

If you buy an album that was released in 2006 and it's not on one of these lists - you have no one to blame, but yourself.

And remember, God hates people with bad taste. Remember Aids and World War II...

The best in Post-Rock:

1. Jeniferever - Choose A Bright Morning
2. Hammock - Raising Your Voice...Trying to Stop an Echo
3. Laura – Radio Swan is Down
4. Jakob – Solace
5. Gregor Samsa - 55:12

The best in Pop:

1. Mute Math – S/T
2. Tiger Lou – The Loyal
3. Code Seven – Dancing Echoes/Dying Sounds
4. People In Planes - As Far As The Eye Can See
5. Gnarls Barkley - St. Elsewhere

The best in Hard Music:

1. Converge - No Heroes
2. Deftones – Saturday Night Wrist
3. Mastodon – Blood Mountain
4. Genghis Tron - Dead Mountain Mouth
5. Blood Brothers – Young Machetes

The best in Hip-Hop:

1. The Roots – The Game
2. Ghost Face – Fish Scale
3. Mos Def – True Magic
4. Lupe Fiasco – Food & Liquor
5. Jay-Z - Kingdom Come

And finally we come to The Best in Indie Rock. Now this list needs to be highlighted because while 2006 was a fairly solid year in general, the 3rd and 4th quarters were exemplary. So much so, that the following list would be easily interchangeable with a list dubbed, "The Top 5 Albums of 2006."

Take notice.

The best in Indie:

1. Mason Proper - There's a Moth in Your Chest
2. Forget Cassettes - Salt
3. Silversun Pickups - Carnavas
4. The Sounds of Animals Fighting - Lover, The Lord...
5. Maritime - We the Vehicles
