The Agonist

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!

The holiday season is here, and you will be shopping on Amazon. Please consider changing your bookmark to our site and using the album art on the side to get there!  Amazon will give us a small percent back from your purchase and we use that to keep the show and site up and running.  Thanks!

We Need to Start Having Better Closers

This is the third week in row that the closing review on this show is for an album (it turns out) we are now very fond of. This week, however, we have a hell of an opener, and no, it is not just because it is ETID.  Listen to the show and you’ll figure it out pretty quickly.

I told you posting the show late wouldn’t be a regular thing.  You’re welcome.  Anyway…in addition to our regular four-album lineup, we do something we haven’t done in a while and chat about some news from the past week!  There are two stories in particular and both are significant in their own right, so feel free to share your own thoughts about them in the comments.  Oh, and you can talk about he albums there too…or Nick and I…or suggest bands we should check out (we do follow those suggestions). But first, you have to listen to the show, so get moving.
