At long last, i have compiled my 7th annual compilation of the best tracks from the top albums of 2006. Over the past 15 months, i have carefully reviewed 151 albums that were released in the US and A over the course of the year. Click here to download a txt file list of all eligible albums. After careful consideration, i sequenced my favorite 72 tracks - enough to fill up 3 CDs and kick your ass for over 234 consecutive minutes. Right about now, you're probably thinking, man that seems like a lot of work! Well, yeah. i have spent countless hours in front of my 'puter organizing all these albums, and an equally incalculable amount of time listening to each and every one of them very carefully, taking copious notes and scribbling drafts of track lists and composing journal entry after journal entry about what each song means to me and how each song fills a certain space in my previously cavernous soul. i have since lost all those notes. i guess i shoulda wrote all that deeply personal stuff on something more permanent than gum wrappers and Starbuck's receipts.
i also suffered a potentially catastrophic setback when my external hard drive made by Seagate crashed in November. All 150GB of my music was lost. after some self-administered grief therapy and a new hard drive, i was able to overcome this adversity and soldier on. It took lots of work and a little help from my friends, but i was able to reacquire most of my tunes.
i now present to you the NeffList 2006 in 5 FREE downloadable parts. Download the files and enjoy. If you don't agree that this is the awesome-est end-of-the-year compilation on all of the internets, i will gladly refund every penny, including sales tax.
