Great stuff. Can't believe the only "professional" list I've seen it on is Pitchfork's "honorable mentions". This is great, really hitting the spot. Glad I picked it up before the year had ended. Wow. Seriously, wow.

Great album, great drumming...Winter rules

Sadly very few people seem to have picked up on it as you said, other than Pitchforks readers poll I don't it's placed anywhere. One of those albums thats completely bypassed the critics.

I was sure it was going to make the Top 5, if not contend for #1.
Really?

I thought it was just an OK album.

In a year of generally mediocre music. Very disappointing compared to 2007.

I really couldn't say if this year was any worse than last...there have been plenty of releases that I will listen to for years to come.

I don't really buy any of these bad years for music arguments.

Me neither. When people say it's a bad year for music, it means they're obviously just not listening to the right music.

FACT!!11!!@1!


Seriously though, good music always requires some sort of research to find. If you're lazy one year, it's probably going to be a "bad year" for you, and that's no one's fault but your own.

If the artists you like aren't releasing anything in a given year, just do some reading. Find some sources for more obscure music and give it a try.
