Top 2006 - And The Winner Is The Greatest

Late December, it’s time to look in the rear view mirror. Like it or not, everybody plays the game of which are the 10 best records of 2006, best singles of the year, best video etc… and Leaky Sparrow likes to play also.
Today I will start with CDs if you agree. I must say that it was for me a much more difficult time to find 10 very good records than to find 10 very good songs. Only a few of the CDs that I had the chance to discover in 2006 are excellent from the first minute of the first song to the last second of the last track and strong enough to pass the test of time.
So, let me apologize here, when you see the list below you will think that I didn’t take many risks. I am very sorry you’ll only find people who are - if I can say for most of them - already well established. No new band, no new singer-songwriter, no first record. Why? Nothing new in 2006? I remember that since Leaky Sparrow started to fly away (beginning of April), I had posted many reviews about young artists or groups, for example: Psychic Ills, Halou, Barzin, Major Deluxe, etc… or being filled with enthusiasm about Caroline, Cibelle, Tunng, Carrie Biell, Gregor Samsa, Red Sparowes… Where are they? Maybe I am too conservative.
Anyway, I hope you did have the chance to hear the records that I choose because they are good and because I still enjoy every listening even months after their release dates (i.e. Cat Power - The Greatest - January 2006). And don’t forget, buy records!

Un classement finalement assez original car en prenant les artistes confirmés tu as écarté tous les petits chouchous que l'on retrouve chez les autres bloggers (dont moi d'ailleurs) comme Decemberists, Midlake, Tv on the radio, Joanna Newsom...
Un petit bémol? Cirkus quelle horreur!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=]Viagra 100mg pills[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
