Agalloch!

Mikael Akerfeldt for fans of Opeth who don't like his growls (and generally the growls): If they don't like it then they are pussies.

10,000 days or blood mountain. Went with 10,000 days because of Rossetta Stoned, Jambi and the title track.

Agalloch from these. 2006 is one of my favourite years of the decade, and I am suprised how little of my favourites appear in this list. :(

Probably a three way tie for me of the ones I have. Dark Third, Orchids, and Stati.

After being turned on to it be one of PA's members, Non Credo's Impropera became my favourite.

Though it pains me not to vote for "Milliontown" I have to vote for "Paradox Hotel" by The Flower Kings, it's my favorite CD by them.

Special mention goes to "The Dark Third" and "Christ-0".  

(2006 was a great year of music for me)

A good year but "A Dark Third" is/was my favorite of the year ... from this list. Where's Negura Bunget's "Om" and my second favorite of 2006, Kotebel's "Omphalos"?

TFKs for me I also liked The Tangent, Frost, Sylvan and Hackett releases.

Frost...
because it was an out of nowhere and startlingly good debut.

From the list - The Tangent.

The Dark Third, promising and fresh debut. (Irrespective of their latest uncanny work.)

PFM's Stati di Imaginazione  brings back a lot of the magic from the 70s and gets my vote

10,000 days would be number 2 for me from this list.


-------------
Prog On!

Had to go with Posthumous Silence. I have yet to find an album as emotional as that one, and I drink that stuff.

Voted for Milliontown, but had to wonder where was Spocks Beard?  SB9 was the best since V.

Stati di Immaginazione is just...beautiful. Tool, Frost* and Devin are with their best releases here.

Posthumous Silence, one of the finest albums ever made.

PRR's The Dark Third.  By far and away the best debut album I've ever heard, and easily my favorite from this list.

Although a huge FK fan, on checking my playlist for 2006 it's Gotta be Sylvan and the fantastic Posthumous Silence. Great DVD as well!

PFM's album here is one of their best and my pick.

-------------
"The wind is slowly tearing her apart"
"Sad Rain" ANEKDOTEN
