My only two 2006 purchases:
Belle & Sebastian - The Life Pursuit
Prince - 3121

The B&S is insanely great.
The Prince is quite good, too.
Albums are listed as I would rank them.

EDIT: Made a 3rd '06 purchase yesterday: Tom Zé - Estuando O Pagode. Giving it a first listen now.

using the following billy g scale:

10: One of the best records of all-time; listmania quality
9: Not a top 100, but still a stone cold classic
8: Maybe not an all-time classic, but would be #1 in most recent years
7: A Very Good Record
6: A Good Record, But One with Questionable Staying Power
5: I Don't Mind Hearing It, but I don't Need to Own It
4: Not Very Good, nothing really stands out even if its not bad
3: Pretty Bad
2: Even Worse
1: Absolutely Awful
0: No Redeeming Quality What So Ever
