I just thought that Digital Ash in a Digital Urn was littered with awkward allusions and clunky couplets and just fails in a mess of pretension.
Yeah, Porcupine Tree became more riff focused around the period of In Absentia / Deadwing, when Steven Wilson started to embrace his metal influences (he mentions Opeth, Meshuggah, Morbid Angel in particular, during his interview on Futile). He actually has an incredibly eclectic range of influences... as shown here.

Hmm, the Beach Boys thing is interesting. I can hear it on his earlier stuff, like Radioactive Toy etc.

I'm rather shocked at Spoon's criminally low placing!

Because it's Elliott Smith, duh.

Here's 2006!

Best of 2006 - Rate Your Music

The top 10 is slightly different because of the compilations/EPs and because I think something got bumped and I'm too lazy to check what. 2006 was an odd year.

Copout answer. But I'll accept it.

Yo La Tengo's 06'er is brilliant. #1 on my list.

I'm actually not very happy with the order of my albums for 2006
