Beloved Customers and Friends :

It's that time again, the moment we've all been waiting for, end of the year, "Top Ten" list time, a time to look back on another fantastic year of amazing music! Thanks to everyone for sending us their lists, and sharing their most loved music with us. We'll get those lists up on the AQ site soon, so everyone can contrast and compare, see all the records they forgot to include on -their- lists and most importantly, discover all the records they may have missed last year! But first, it's time to present you with OUR best of 2006 lists! Our favorite records from the last twelve months. It was pretty tough to whittle our lists down to just 10, so many of us didn't. But that just means more amazing music to recommend and celebrate and share!

So, here are our lists. Pretty much every entry on a given list is a link that you can click to see our review of that particular item in a pop-up window, so you can read about (and, potentially, order...) 'em.

And of course thanks for another great year, thanks for reading our list, sending us nice emails, suggesting cool bands to check out and of course buying your music from us! It means more than you can ever know. Without you all, we wouldn't exist! You all rule! And we love you. LOTS!!!

Happy New Year, and THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU all for being such great customers!!

Here's to another great year of more music than we know what to do with!!

Lots of love from your devoted AQ staff
-- Andee Allan Jim Cup Christine Scott Matt Ashley Irwin Lauren Pam and Sally

MY rules: The new stuff is all from 2006... except maybe for a few items that came out in 2005 but that I didn't hear, and we didn't stock or list here at AQ, until 2006.
And as for the reissues section, I only picked things that a) were reissued in 2006 with the same possible exceptions noted above, and b) that I really only got to hear and appreciate in full for the first time because of said reissue. Otherwise, I'd have definitely included the NSU "Turn Me On, Or Turn Me Down" reish, as well as stuff like Buffalo, High Tide, This Heat, etc. -- but I already knew those from previous reissues.
And yes, my top ten lists are in precise order of favoriteness from 1 to 10, 1 being best!
