Merry Christmas freaks!  It’s been an, uh, interesting year.  We sincerely thank each and every one of you who listen to this podcast and support us in any way.  It is a fair amount of work, but even more fun, and it means a lot that we have all of you enjoying it! So thanks again being with us in 2016, and we look forward to a (hopefully better) 2017!  And now, enjoy our top albums of the year!!

P.S.  As you heard last week, in this episode and may have read in comments recently, Nick and I overlooked a few releases when talking about Most Disappointing, Best Debut, etc. You should know by now we aren’t always the sharpest crayons in the box. Well, adding to that list, we neglected to mention an EP we both enjoyed – Welcome to Poetry 201 by The Nietzsche. (Check out our 4 star review HERE if you missed it.) Sorry about that guys!

We Need to Start Having Better Closers

This is the third week in row that the closing review on this show is for an album (it turns out) we are now very fond of. This week, however, we have a hell of an opener, and no, it is not just because it is ETID.  Listen to the show and you’ll figure it out pretty quickly.

Enjoy the Violence

Last week, we showed you some new finds.  This week, we have some returning favorites, including two highly anticipated albums! One of them was pretty much a guaranteed winner while the other was definitely less decided going into it…and kinda stayed so ever after the review.  This would be the opportune time for you listener to share your thoughts in the comments and keeps the discussion going. Just sayin’…

Individual Thought Patterns and the Sound of Perseverance 

Yes, I am intentionally making Death references in the title.  And, also yes, it was inspired by one of our album reviews.  However, those two album names also apply to the rest of the reviews in this episode, which makes me very deep and clever.  Or maybe it just makes me lazy, but either way, they fit. Anyway, you’ll notice that since we overwhelmed you with segments last week, we decided to strip down this show.  Ok, fine. That’s not really how it went down, but just work with me here…

This is a post for those that asked to see our individual year end lists. It is far too early on a Monday morning for me to justify why each of these albums is ending up where it is on the list, so I’ll just defend myself later in the comments if necessary.
