Bonnie 'Prince' Billy (Will Oldham) had two releases this year, including a live one, that were excellent. But I think my top album of 2006 is MWard's 'Post War.' It is simply a brilliant release, a great match for his previous 'Transistor Radio'. I also liked Cat Power's album.
Dylan's album seemed to me to be yet another addendum to his last couple of albums, long mellow songs that ramble a bit too much, imo, but I do (at least somewhat) like the material.
I also really liked Tom Waits 3cd collection that came out last month. Liked the Raconteurs album too, but did not find it really broke ground musically, but rather recalled a 70's (LZep, etc) rock feel a LOT!! I like Jack White's stuff in recent years quite a bit.
