Best of 2006 | The Guardian Music Monthly

Guardian Part of the erstwhile left-leaning British weekly, The Guardian, the Observer Music Monthly is a lot like what Q used to be (and what WORD is now) — a music mag for adults, who are still quite into music, thankyouverymuch. Again, no surprise as to the #1 album (it’s as if British mags MUST choose it or look like fools) but there are some curveballs in the list. Both the albums and singles lists actually go to 20, so read the full versions there, complete with commentary.
