This is it!  It is finally the end of 2020, and at the 11th hour, we are sharing our Top 20 albums fo the year.  Why did we wait so long? Mostly because Brian forgot to post it days ago.  But also because we wanted to go out with a bang?  Sure…let’s go with that….

Happy New Year everybody!  Here’s to a better year in 2021!

Beginning the End of this Clusterf#%k of a Year

We’re almost there, folks!  We know the world is not going to magically change come January 1st, but it will still be nice to have this dumpster fire behind us. So to start the festivities, as usual, we have our auxiliary lists like Best Artwork, Most Improved, Worst Albums, and more.  Feel free to share your picks in the comments!

Happy Holidays everybody!  And remember – Be responsible. Stay healthy. Stay Metal.

Well, This Is A First

There’s nothing particularly special about this episode aside from it being the last regular episode for this shitty year…and a couple of mini-reviews from Brian.  It does, however, mark the first time in over nine years we had to skip a scheduled recording.  Still a damn impressive run, if we do say so ourselves.

You may also notice a review that seems out of place.  Why did we do it? Go to THIS PAGE to find out how you can help this podcast contribute to Crew Nation and make us review whatever you want.

This is it, freaks!  Our Top 20 Albums of 2014!  We all know lists are super subjective and semi-bullshit, but they at least make for good conversation/argument and give you some idea of albums that should be worth your time.  Also, we are review show…we kinda have to do it.

This time, though, we went strictly with our guts.  We each did one draft of our lists before combining them to the final one. No nitpicking and arguing “objectivity” with ourselves.  No giving a shit if placing X higher than Y was trve or kvlt.  What you see is an honest reaction to going over all  200+ albums we reviewed and picking what we liked best.  Obviously our individual lists were longer – and surprisingly diverse considering how many times Nick and I give things the same ratings – but we are both quite pleased with the final rundown.  Maybe we’ll share those personal lists later, but for now, get listening then leave us comments telling us how wrong we are so we can tell you you’re probably right, but argue anyway.
