Best of 2006 | MOJO

Aging music nerd mag MOJO doesn’t quite have the clout it did at the start of the Aughts, when it was cover-to-cover amazing, but it still is more credible than just about any other music magazine. (That said, I’d love to see them declare a moritorium on Beatles cover stories.) While you can’t exactly call thier list surprising, it makes sense. And I guess I’m going to have to check out James Hunter.

  1. You know, I have a subscription to Mojo — not only does it arrive w/o the CD sometimes, but it arrives late…which is starting to become not so big of a deal since its starting to — not so much suck, but become irrelavent.

  2. Never was a big Mojo fan, but I bought this issue simply for the fact that they had Archie Bronson Outfit at number 5. I was starting to think I was the only person who rates this brilliantly dark album that grooves like a bastard.
