Everyone makes their standard "best of's," top 10s" and "year in review" lists, but each December we like to take that model a couple of steps further. We go straight to the artists to see where they found inspiration over the past twelve months, and we don't stop with just album choices. We dig a bit deeper and go for a broader picture of the past year in art. From classic moments on the road to their guilty pleasure confessions, this is a panoramic snapshot of "the best of 2006," and a peek into what to expect in '07.
Ten years as a band, and Centro-matic’s newest album has been heralded as the band’s best yet by peers like Patterson Hood of the Drive-By Truckers. Will Johnson and company show a polish that has burned brighter with each proper release.
