    Green Day was never my cup of tea, but American Idiot should have won. That album was enormous.

     

    Usher’s Confessions was the DEFINITION of “enormous”. It moved a legitimate One MILLION units in its first week and sold 8 MILLION in one year alone. Its the second highest selling of album of the entire 2000’s DECADE. Nobody was touching Usher in 04-05

    The Ray Charles win was an extremely bland choice. I’m glad they stopped nominating posthumous releases.

     

    1. Confessions
    2. American Idiot
    3. The College Dropout
    4. The Diary of Alicia Keys
    5. Genius Loves Company

    Ray Charles is a legend. He’s an icon. He is THE moment. Yet that win is one of the worst ever.

    My personal pick would’ve been Usher. But literally anyone could make a case for Green Day, Alicia, & Kanye as well. Each had monumental albums from that era which defined these artists’s careers and influenced an entire generation.

    The College Dropout A
    Genius Loves Company A-
    Confessions B
    The Diary of Alicia Keys C+
    American Idiot C+

    The nature of his win shouldn’t diminish what Ray accomplished with his first good album since the 70s. Though had it not been for his death the “legacy” nod that year could’ve gone to Brian Wilson’s SMiLE, which may well be the best album released during the eligibility period. Alicia’s formula of Idol ballads + atmospheric R&B was a major dud, and Green Day’s was all visual and no substance.

    Confessions was definitely the album of the year, but I wouldn’t have been surprised if Alicia Keys, Kanye West or Green Day came before Usher in votes, which is crazy to think about it.

    I am absolutely voting for Kanye West here. The College Dropout is simply a monumental debut album and a member of my top 10 of the decade. Green Day’s album was a step below Dookie, but still an overall very good album and a massive seller. Confessions is a good album and one of the biggest of that decade, so I wouldn’t have been mad had it won. I don’t really like the Alicia Keys record and Ray Charles’ win is one of the worst ever and a pretty underwhelming way to make up for robbing him of this award in 1963 for Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music.

    Kanye or Usher should have won. Ray Charles’ win was such an obvious make up award.

    BTW, Hot Fuss should’ve gotten a nod here.

    Honey, the legendary Usher should’ve won.  Confessions was THE album of 2004, selling 10 million copies.

    Chile, delusional Swifties will pollute this thread with garbage when we get to 2010, 2014, 2016, and 2021.  BARF!

    2006, Album of the year

    The nominees were:

    1. U2– How to dismantle an atomic bomb (WINNER)

    2. Mariah Carey – The Emancipation of Mimi

    3.  Paul McCartney  – Chaos and Creation in the Backyard

    4. Gwen Stefani – Love. Angel. Music. Baby

    5. Kanye West – Late Registration

    The 2006 Grammys had previous AOTY nominees Mariah Carey, Paul MccCartney, U2 and Kanye West. Gwen Stefani was also nominated for her hit packed album, featuring Hollaback Girl and Rich Girl. U2 won AOTY 18 years after their last AOTY win in 1988, that was discussed in this thread on the first pages.

     

    Some photos from 2006 Grammys:

    U2 with their Grammys

    Madonna with Gorillaz and De La Soul opened the show and performed Feel Good Inc. and Hung Up. The beginning of the performance was a hologram installation.

    Mariah Carey had her career redemption with The Emancipation of Mimi, many people disregarded her after Glitter, her comeback in 2005 was dominating album and single charts.

    The American Idol, Kelly Clarkson
