Top of the Bops, 2006 Ed.

The new year is upon us all and I still have not succumbed to any eggnog yet (Slovakian beer seems more appropriate). Everyone, it seems, is making lists and I felt it only natural to produce one of my own on behalf of Esthete Radio. The last Esthete Radio of the year 2006 will countdown the year's best albums as seen through the eyes of your host, one song from each, tomorrow at 10AM-Noon. A preview so as to pique your interest:
