Well it’s that time of year for the very first time since last year at this time. To be less specific: it’s A time of year… again. Aren’t you excited? I sure amn’t. Yikes. What I mean to say is: TOP TEN ALBUM TIME, BITCHES. While not the most flashy year of music to date, I […]


Greetings Music Lovers, It’s that time again, when I get the pleasure of summing up my favorite musical moments of the year.  I just wanted to take a moment to thank CKTK for letting me voice my opinions!  In this same moment I thought I would take the time to explain where I’m coming from.  […]


I’ll be completely honest, most of the music I listened to in 2012 was not from 2012. I enjoyed a ton of great new (to me) music from past years, but when it came to constructing an end of year list, I drew a bit of a blank… However, after a great deal of investigating […]


If you’re reading this post it means one of two things, either the Mayan prophecies were flat out wrong, or they simply didn’t anticipate that my contribution to CKTK’s Top 10-A-Palooza would save all mankind. As with any near-death experience, 2012 has moved us to reflect. We gaze deeply into ourselves… and by that I […]


Wanna know a secret? Okay, it’s not really a secret anymore because, by now, you’ve read the title, which isn’t entirely discreet. Here goes: Wilco’s uber-celebrated 2002 release Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is overrated. I’ve been trying to keep my mouth shut about this for a while now. It has been approximately 11 months since everyone and their […]


No analysis today; I’m letting the music stand for itself (which, of course, it does). As always, click on any album title to listen on lala. Read part I here and part II here. 10    The National – Boxer (2007) 9    Taking Back Sunday – Tell All Your Friends (2002) 8    Dirty Projectors – Bitte Orca (2009) […]


Hey hey, here we go. I hope you spent the entire weekend evaluating the picks from the previous post. This has been quite the metaphorical trip down memory lane for me; I was 14 when the naughties began, and I’m 24 on the way out. Most of my music-listening life happened in the last ten […]


Welcome back. It’s that time again; time for another list pored over by one of your two founding listmaniacs. We’ve spent so much time reading top album lists over the past decade, we needed to give back. What follows are my thoughts about the greatest albums of 2000-2009. I won’t be doing any decade analysis; […]


Every year since 2006, I’ve been making a “Best Of” mix at the end of the year to give to friends and family members around the holidays. This year, I was not able to see most of my friends, so I decided to make the playlist and stick it online instead. So, here we are! […]


I pity the poor suckers who unleashed their “Albums of the Decade” lists before midnight on January 1st, 2010, because they ALL MISSED THIS ONE! This album (the one that I linked with pink ink before the exclamation point and after the word “they”) did MORE than just convert me to Epistemological Luddism–it also reminded […]
