My top nine albums/music of the year. I would have picked ten, but most everything else was background noise and singles to me in comparison to the following. Any year that Radiohead puts out an album is a great year in music, in my opinion, but there was a ton of great music to flesh [...]
These are the posts from December 2007
Now that this great year in music has nearly come and gone, sufficed to say 2007 will be hard to top. But what new music releases are worth looking forward to in 2008? Here are a few artists and\or bands on my radar:
