2019 Shit We Missed

As we usually do with the first episode of the year, we covered some albums we didn’t get to in the previous year.  Since we did some preemptive maintenance late in 2019, we took a different approach to what we chose for the episode. So let us know if there is anything else from 2019 (besides Tool) we should check out!

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!)

So, without further ado…

Four Freakin’ Hundred!

So we have done a lot of episodes in our 8+ years as podcast!  It would have been more if we did change our release format this year, but we still haven’t missed a scheduled show!  This also mean we have listened to a metric fuckton of music, a fun fact Nick details in the show.

Thanks for being with us this far, and we look forward to being with you for years to come!

Like Having Sex While Camping

Not only do we have an overload of music for you this week, most of it is really heavy and pretty fucking intense. Even better is we like or love all of it!  Hopefully you do too!
