THE BIG WRAP UP!

Well another year of great soundtracks has come and gone.  The year in soundtracks brought cheers (X-Men, Superman, The Da Vinci Code) and jeers (Flags of Our Fathers, Cars, The Prestige), but there was certainly no lack in good music to listen to and discuss.  The 2006 Cue Awards have come to a close...almost.

Have the fun is analyzing and over-analyzing the results of the show.  Sorry, there's no apparel to critique only winners and nominees to talk about.  At this years Cue Awards there were some big winners and some surprising non-winners, so browse to your hearts content...
