Try Harder Next Time

Well, this time we recorded the show before hitting the slopes, but we didn’t get to edit and such until after.  So, late again (get used to it), here were are with brand new releases that we are actually interested in hearing what you think about.  I mean, yeah, the whole point of this is we share our thoughts and you use that knowledge at your discretion.  However, we feel like we are missing a little something at some points here, so we want to know what you think!  Use that comments section and share you thoughts!  Be heard!

Grinding Through Progression

As hinted at last week, we review the new BTBAM album this week, and we (accidentally) decided to pair it with another long-winded progressive album. In an attempt to balance that out, we picked two albums whose combined length is still not as long as either progressive album. They do, however, test our endurance…just in a very different way.

It’s that time! Time for Brian and Nick to share their top albums for 2013!  And this year, there are more than ever!  After individually making lists of more than 20 albums (beyond 20 was largely undecided when they worked on the collective list), the combined lists brought a Top 25!! There were so many great albums this year, it was hard not make a list this long.  Realistically, it should be even longer because there are even more great albums that didn’t make the cut because of math, but there was just not enough time (and energy) to go further.
