Now that 2006 has come and gone, Kidzworld takes a look back at the hottest album releases of the year. Get the goods on our top picks!

#10. Nelly Furtado - Loose

With Loose, Nelly Furtado found her first hit since I'm Like a Bird flew up the charts back in 2000. Nelly strayed from her bubblegum-pop roots to explore her funkier, R&B self with the help of famed producer Timbaland.

#9. My Chemical Romance - The Black Parade

The Black Parade manages to be the most fun album about death in a long time. The glam rock tunes manage to be grim without ever being depressing and will keep you grooving with its brand of over-the-top rock anthems.

#8. Christina Aguilera - Back to Basics

Christina's vintage-inspired album gave lovers of both old-school and new-school tunes a treat. The vocal-heavy album left us with no doubt that Christina has some of the best pipes in the industry.

#7. High School Musical Soundtrack

The success of this made-for-TV hit's soundtrack was no surprise. Songs from the family friendly Disney musical were a hit with all age groups and the success of the album spawned record deals for many of the movie's cast members.

#6. Pharrell - In My Mind

Famed music producer Pharrell Williams made a splash of his own with his solo debut, In My Mind. The album showed off Pharrell's well-honed musical prowess and guest appearances from Gwen Stefani, Snoop Dogg, and Kanye West took In My Mind to the next level.

#5. Hannah Montana Soundtrack

The Hannah Montana Soundtrack was the surprise hit of the year, taking out strong competition from My Chemical Romance. The album's pop-country mix offers a little something for everyone, including tracks from Jesse McCartney, Miley Cyrus, Everlife and achey-breaky Billy Ray Cyrus.

#4. The Killers - Sam's Town

The Killers sophomore album, Sam's Town, took a new take on the old-school Americana sound. Catchy tune follows catchy tune on this irresistibility slick pop-rock album.

#3. Gwen Stefani - The Sweet Escape

Gwen Stefani has reinvented herself once-again in this dance-worthy album of fresh beats and unique hooks (yodeling anyone?). This is a must-have album for fans of this yummy mommy.

#2. Beyonce - B'Day

Beyonce shows that she's all grown up in this fiercely rocking new album. From retro throw-backs to hot club tracks to soulful ballads, this album is jam-packed with irresistible tunes.

#1. Gnarls Barkley - St. Elsewhere

Gnarls Barkley swept the UK - and then the world - this year with their break-out single Crazy. But Gnarls Barkley is no one-hit-wonder. See if you can resist shaking you bootie to tunes like Go-Go Gadget Gospel and The Last Time. St. Elsewhere has "instant-classic" written all over it.

That movie is soo overrated. I never even got what it meant. And, there's also lame songs playing every 5 minutes of the movie. :mad :mad
