    Wow. I own ZERO of those records, and the only one I would even consider buying is the Tool record.

    I got those three, but the only one I actually bought was the RHCP. I borrowed and downloaded Tool from a friend at work, and my fiancee bought me the Curious George soundtrack because I'm a huge Jack Johnson fan.

    I probably ought to add Gnarls Barkley to my Christmas wishlist, though. Major oversight in not buying that one already.

    I cannot believe Operation Mindcrime II didn't make it.

    At least the Dixie Chicks got the last laugh on Toby Keith.

    That is awesome.

    Another loss for the yeehaws. I can think of one in particular on this board who must be quite broken up over this.

    How sad is it that Pearl Jam's latest didn't make the list?

    I bought the Best Of The Undisputed Truth on Friday. Its 2006 sales will go up with a bullet from 1 CD to 2 CDs sold.

    I've got the Chili Peppers, Dixie Chicks and Justin Timberlake, will be getting the Beyonce and Cash CDs for Christmas.

    Another one I bought. And that is a surprise, given how much I loved this album.
