thanks for waiting...

-The list consists of releases from January 1, 2006- June 15, 2006, and of course this list is incomplete, but a nice barometer of what I thought were some notable releases thus far. So here's my picks of the best releases of the halfway mark of 2006.
-The competition got even stiffer, as only 2 albums survived from the First Quarter.
