Decatur CD's Year End List Extravaganza Part 1 of 5

To quote the Cranberries, everybody else is doing it, so why can't we? Indeed, today kicks off the first portion of our five-part series creatively titled The Decatur CD Best Of 2006 Year-End List Extravaganza. We begin with the rookie, Eliot. A studious (and quite tall) young lad currently attending Emory University, Eliot enjoys long walks on the beach, combing his ample hair and listening to lots of what the kids like to call "the freak folk." His top 25 albums of 2006 go a little something like this:

eliot as your favorite male cousin might i suggest a gem of a record from a little known outfit.
"A Fever You Can't Sweat Out"-Panic! at the Disco.
I'm not sure Decatur CD is in the know enough to carry such quality music but there's a radical best buy nearby that probably has 50 copies or so. I guarantee your list will change with one listen.
