What are YOUR albums of the year, in any genre (the more indie the better)? I really want to know what’s good out there. My buying is a bit random at the moment, and focused mainly on back catalogue when I can get it.
Of the limited number of 2006 albums I’ve listened to (see the hyperlinks above), Vibe (right) is certainly the best. I’ve not yet had a chance to listen to properly to my most recent purchases, but based on first listening I’m surprised Fly to the Sky’s Transition isn’t on the list: to me it’s superior to the SG Wannabe album. However, Uhm Jung-hwa’s ninth initially seems as characterless as Baek Ji-young’s Smile.
All suggestions gratefully received.
Oh, I almost forgot (how could I?). Asianbite has kindly read an article on the Korean pages of KBS. In a survey of top entertainers of the year, Lee Hyori and Rain head the list of singers. Asianbite takes the opportunity to post a nice gallery of Lee Hyori images.
