Hover your mouse over image for band and album names. Click the album covers links to either previous posts on my blog, posts on other blogs, or sites to stream the album/tracks.

I didn't put as much effort/time into this as previous years. I was going to say something about each album but that would take too long. I'll just say my #1 pick speaks to my current shitty life and state of mind. It's also an incredible noise-rock album. The rest of the list is the beautiful noise that keeps me from killing myself. Also, Lightning Bolt's Transmissionary is the track of the year. Just freakin mindblowing!

Well done. I did a top 20 for spiralcircus and that was hard enough, let alone tracking 150 albums. Keep it up.
