From the Other Side

This week’s episode is structured very much the same way as usual, and we are checking out all repeat offenders.  However, we do spice things up a bit with a special guest reviewer! (No, not Mike.) I’m not going to tell you who it is right here, so start listening and find out.

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.

After a fun trip to a land where Nu-Metal is still a thing and an actual fun trip Brian took driving almost 3,000 miles around this country, we’re back with a show featuring albums you probably care about and have a real chance of liking.  Oh, you didn’t realize one of your hosts wasn’t around?  That’s because he’s ninja.  That, and your hosts are crafty mofos. But it was all for your benefit, so don’t dwell on it too much.  Just listen tot he show and the sweet jams within.
