Film Folks’ Five Favorite Albums for 2006. Part Ten.

Film Folks' Five Favorite Albums for 2006. Part Ten.

There are so many end-of-the-year lists right now, and so many of the film sites and blogs (this one included) are covered with some sort of “Best Films” list. I decided, in the spirit of this blog, to invite various film industry people to offer their selections for “Best Albums of 2006.” So, every weekday until we’re done, I will post the lists from five different film folks. What were the albums of 2006 that kept spinning on film sets, in editing rooms, on planes bound for festivals, or in industry offices? Here’s the 10th batch of picks:

1. Beck, The Information
2. The Raconteurs, Broken Boy Soldiers
3. Duncan Sheik, Spring Awakening Original Broadway Cast Album
4. The Game, Doctor’s Advocate

“Special Bonus Track: Jeff Buckley’s ‘Forget Her.'”

3. The Gothic Archies, Songs from a Series of Unfortunate Events
