2006 Top Ten (Music): R. Emmet Sweeney

Mike Lyon over at Fourteen Seconds has just posted his top ten albums, and here, humbly, are mine.

1. Clipse: Hell Hath No Fury

I've been listening to "Ride Around Shining" constantly for weeks. It's the harp.

2. Alan Jackson: Red Like A Rose

It makes me want to drink scotch.

3. Jason Moran: Artist In Residence

His wife sings (operatically) for him to come home from the tour.

4. Ghostface Killah: Fishscale

"Whip You With a Strap"

5. Tom Waits: Orphans

"Altar Boy": Now I can order in Latin/Make em au gratin, Joe

6. Justin Timberlake: Futuresex/LoveSounds

"My Love": song of the year

7. Roy Nathanson: Sotto Voce

"By the Page": My father paid me to read

8. Nellie McKay: Pretty Little Head

Duet with Cyndi Lauper

9. The Coup: Pick a Bigger Weapon


10: Julie Roberts: Men & Mascara

They both run.
