    I was disappointed with the Dylan album. I like a couple of the tracks on the TV on the Radio album a lot. I'm STUNNED Gnarls Barkley didn't make the list.

    Did Gnarls Barkley have a good album or just one popular song? I only heard the song, so I don't know.

    Nice to see Chili Peppers at No. 2, Tom Waits at No. 10 and Pearl Jam at No. 13.

    Were there 50 worthwhile albums this year?

    Or was this more lists from the magazine that gave us that hilarious "Top guitarists of ALL TIME!" section?

    I've been meaning to pick up the Roots' new album for a while... at No. 18 I think its worth a trip to Best Buy.

    There's not 50 albums worthy of a "best of" list in 2006, much less the last two years, IMO.

    People say this every year, but I just don't buy it. There's plenty of really good music out there. People are just conditioned to think nothing good has come out since they left college. The presence of Todd Snider, Johnny Cash and Neko Case on there are particularly pleasing. Yeah, I'm a bit of a folkie.

    A while back, around 2003-04, I owned well over half RS's "best of" list. That number -- Neko Case's fine work included -- is down to four this year.

    I dunno. Maybe it's just me.

    I really liked the Dylan album, and I thought his last few before it were overrated.

    I'll second the praise for Neko Case.

    My two favorites of the year - by far - didn't make the list: "Live A Little" by the Pernice Brothers and "High Society" by The Bees.
