This year has kicked ass, musically speaking. As I sit here, doing my eardrums some very blissful damage with my In Rainbows 45 speed double vinyl CRANKED, it occurs to me you few readers want a decisive top five. Ask, and ye shall receive. Seek and ye shall find. Knock and the door shall open. Jesus Jesus Labyrinth. Omphalos. Ad Nauseam. Here it is:
1>The National: Boxer
3>Radiohead In Rainbows
4>Einsturzende Neubauten: Alles Weider Offen
5>PJ Harvey: White Chalk
Other albums I dig considerably: The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of Niggy Tardust, Neon Bible, La Fin Absolue Du Monde, Mythmaker, a lot of American Doll Posse, Hourglass, and about half of Year Zero.
Alright. I promise I'll write more. 33 plus pages later after final grad papers and the drive to write atrophies.
