Stocking Stuffers

Before we get to the main event next week, we have the appetizer portion of our year-end festivities.  As usual, we discuss things like our favorite EPs, most improved bands, and worst albums, amongst more goodies.  Also as usual, Mike joins us to discuss our favorite album art, which you will find below so you can follow along.

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!

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.
