by Various Artists
Released: Nov 2006
This compilation brings together a wide range of smash hits from 2006, including everything from emo upstarts Panic! At The Disco ("I Write Sins, Not Tragedies") to ubiquitous RnB guru Gnarls Barkley ("Crazy"). If you make it all the way through the LP, a pair of the year's lesser lights anchor the end: Lupe Fiasco's first-rate ode to skating "Kick, Push," and James Blunt's gushing ballad "You're Beautiful."
