Top 10 Albums of 2006: No. 3

3.         ¡Forward, Russia! – Give Me A Wall

This is a rare example of an amazing live band being able to capture at least some of that energy onto record. While many energetic bands seem to lack something on record, as they quietly play though their songs, the urgency that spreads throughout a ¡Forward, Russia! show can be felt on this record. It’s easy to forget that, behind all the onstage antics and never-ending tours, the band’s work is based on a fantastic library of songs, and a chance to sit down to listen to this makes me want to see the band live again even more.
