PoOPlists 2006

Richard Allen Poop 06

ALBUMS Buy new or used through Amazon Leafcutter John ~ The Forest and the Sea (Staubgold). Two travelers become lost in the woods, are surrounded by night creatures, and wake up with wings. At least that’s what seems to be happening in this Grimm and unsettling tale. The music is bracketed by field recordings: boots crunching on leaves, waves lapping against forsaken cliffs, a horse galloping past hidden alcoves. “The Forest and the Sea” is as mysterious as a Gypsy…


Mark Zip Poop 06

  Buy new or used through Amazon Arctic Monkeys – Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not — Yes, the hype for a certain part of the prospective audience was deafening, so what. The question is, does it communicate what it wants to? Answer: YES! In spades, I say. Basic rock ‘n roll is a lot more difficult than this makes it seem. Some whining on the West side of the pond about it being "too English".. so…


John Greak Pooplist 06

POOP MMVI Once again I have waited until the last minute (actually, I have 240 minutes to go ’til the clock strikes midnight) to gather my thoughts and music purchases for the past year, spread them out in front of me, and try to figure out which are worthy for mention in the preeminent “best of” publication of the year. I spent the better part of 2006 ignoring popular music, hence my list will seem somewhat limited when compared to…

Bill Still Poop 06

  Buy from CD Baby 1. THE FELICE BROTHERS: Through These Reins & Gone – local Hudson Valley guys made the best music I heard all year…several live shows really showcased their Band/Dylan influences. big things lie ahead for them.   Buy new or used through Amazon 2. BOB DYLAN: Modern Times – what can one say? blatant rip offs from Muddy Waters aside, a brilliant, fun, insightful ride. (local reference- rented out the Bardavon to write and jam for…


John Stewart Poop 06

I have been doing this for 5 or 6 years now I think? Do I have a frigging clue in what I am doing? Hell to the no. I love the music I listen to, as well as the movies and tv shows I watch. I do support gay marriage, as well as a woman’s right to choose. But other than that I am your typical meat-eating, right to bear arms liberal. Anyway here’s what I dug in 2006. There…

Mark Rosen Poop 06

    Buy new or used through Amazon 1. PAUL McCARTNEY – Chaos And Creation In The Backyard Go ahead and call me a wanker for liking this (or for any other reason, if you prefer). Without resorting to one damn silly love song, McCartney delivers a genuinely great album of minor key marvels. Like new Beatles music once did, it surprises and challenges at every turn. And to think that this year he’ll rent a cottage at the Isle…
