Of Mice & Men

Listapaloozamania Start Now!

It’s a week before Christmas and all through the podcast we were stirring, bitching, and moaning about making lists.  I mean, we go through this every year, so you think we would just get over it. Anyway, as in years past, we have a few other short lists like Best Artwork (which you can see below), Most Disappointing, and Worst Albums. Enjoy these treats this week, and come back next week for the 2016 grand finale!

What’s Thick, Heavy, and Feels Oh So Good?

Answer – the production on 3/4 of what we cover this week.
Anyway, last week we previewed a new Trap Them song and then commented we can hopefully review the album soon.  Well guess what? We can and we did. In addition to that, we have (spoiler alert) another awesome album…and one that missed the mark worse than a Stormtrooper. The new Car Bomb song almost makes up for it though.

Look!  Another Milestone!

And what did we do to commemorate it?  Same thing we did for the last couple milestones…nothing. That said, it just so happens we kinda dove back into the Sideshow’s nu-metal roots this week.  I guess that could count for something? Maybe?
