Top 2 Disappointing Albums of 2006…

In 2006 there were quite a few lackluster albums put out by bands/artists I love. DJ Shadow, The Mountain Goats, Lucero, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Cursive to name a few. But, there were only 2 albums that really stood out to me as being disappointing. And I only do this out of love (tough love!) cause I know how much more these bands are capable of. These are two perfect examples of great bands thinking too damn much! Whether it be adding uncessary instruments, over-indulgence in the studio, or whatever…these two records were swings and misses for the most part. Click on the album cover to read the reviews.
