The Incomplete List of the Most Anticipated Albums This Year- 2006 Edition

-this list is incomplete since we'll be hearing more buzz in the coming months of other anticipated albums, but here's the breakdown so far:

1. Yeah Yeah Yeahs (March 2006)-

- The sophomore album (not including their EP)...promises to be totally different from their previous album.
NME reports: Yeah Yeah Yeah's Plan Reinvention

2. Arcade Fire (Late 2006)-

-The true test for Arcade Fire is to overcome the sophomore album stigma and prove the critics and the rest of the world that they are the real thing.

3. Radiohead (2006- no official date)-

-If you got a chance to hear their Ether concert bootleg of the new song "Arpeggi" back in March, this could be an interesting transition for a band that is attempting to push the envelope even more, especially as they ditch their long time producer to get a different sound and feel.

Other notable mentions:
Asobi Seksu
Bloc Party
Built to Spill
Trespasser Williams
Midnight Movies
TV on the Radio
The Raconteurs - the collaborative efforts of Jack White and Brendan Benson

We already got a nice whiff of:
Jenny Lewis with the Watson Twins
The Arctic Monkeys

Still in the backburner?:
Also the neverending rumours circulating sometime of the return of Portishead.-- maybe this year?
