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.

We have a delightful spread of heavy treats for you this week.  I know we tend to have diverse offerings, but the array of offerings we have this week is kind of all over the place.  That said, if you have tastes as diverse as we do, there’s a lot for you to digest here.
