Best of 2006 | NME

No real surprises on NME‘s annual year-end lists, apart from how closely thier singles list mirrors mine. (That’s right, folks, I LOVE* The View.) Arctic Monkeys in the top slot was a given, but with thier penchant for putting gothemo bands on the cover, their lists are actually better than I was expecting. Wish I could say the same for Q.
