I'm alarmed at the lack of dubstep on the dubdog list!
particular omissions IMHO:
Burial by Burial
Skream! by Skream!
(note how dubsteppers like to get all eponymous)
various 12s by Digital Mystikz
and countless DJ set downloads from http://www.barefiles.com/

these along with The Drift by Scott Walker defined '06 for me.
