Yeah, We Did It Too

As we discussed in 2019 closer Episode 405, we made “best of the decade” list too.  After collaborating on the 2010 picks (the podcast hadn’t started yet), we took the top 3 albums from each of our “Best of the Year” lists.  Since we didn’t want to repeat bands, we then together picked the best of the repeat offenders.  Next, we individually ranked the remaining albums before finally compiling them like we do the other “Best of the Year” lists.

Ya follow all that?  Good.

The result is solid, albeit a little odd. Remember, both of our likes, dislikes, preferences, tolerances, etc. have changed a lot over the years.  This list is reflective of the show throughout the years filtered through our current tastes, but maybe not really representative of either host individually, or as we maybe would retroactively rank albums (if we could).  So, while you could argue with us about glaring omissions and the such, don’t bother.  We did it this way to be fair to the recorded history of the show and, well – honestly – we didn’t have the time or willpower to start from scratch.  (That list would have been really weird!)

This Is Important

Why is this important, you ask?  Well, mostly because we cover a few albums that may affect our upcoming year-end lists.  Also, one of these albums just has a heavy, significant message to the world. Oh, and maybe that’s just an attention-grabbing title.

Forget Me Not

The problem we had for some of the artists this week is not in their musicianship, but their ability to make us remember what the hell just happened.  If you can’t handle that, then out already-crappy memories sure as hell aren’t going to remember their albums a year or more from now. Let us know in the comments (or social media) if you agree with our assessments!
