hello, would you put a mirror for "Novembre - the blue" in zshare or mediafire? i cant download from megaupload because of busy ports in my country :(

nice list. some of my favs from this year are quite low (e.x: neurosis,65dos)but earthless and Caspian are great, granted.
excellent blog, keep the music coming .
cheers from Athens

Thanks for the comments folks. I'm a bit anti-social so i don't respond to them well, but keep coming back for more of (what my deluded brain thinks is) the best music on earth.

I had a good amount of this stuff already so I made a playlist with the albums. Its funny to go from Iron and Wine to High On Fire
