ONE LAST LOOK BACK: THE TOP 10 LIST OF JOHN W. ALLMAN

ONE LAST LOOK BACK: THE TOP 10 LIST OF JOHN W. ALLMAN

Not so much a Top 10 list, as there is plenty of music I haven’t heard this year, but these 10 albums represent the discs that rarely made it out of rotation on my iPod or Spotify account. These are the albums that I turned to when I was happy, when I was caught in […]

NINEBULLETS.NET PODCAST: EPISODE 24 (SOME OF THE BEST OF 2011):

Originally, the podcast and Ninebullets Radio were supposed to (mostly) feature different songs. Then, I was asked to do an extra hour on the show at the last minute and the two ended up being extremely similar track listings. Sorry about that but look at it like this; in a week the archive of the […]

The Top 10 List of Hoss

The Top 10 List of Hoss

This is not a list of the Top 10 albums of this year. This is a list of the top albums that touched me this year, that I couldn’t stop listening to, that spoke to me or grabbed me in some way and wouldn’t let go. Some are from 2011, and some aren’t. I’m winging […]

AUTOPSY IV’S FAVORITE 10 ALBUMS OF 2011 (today):

AUTOPSY IV’S FAVORITE 10 ALBUMS OF 2011 (today):

I’m stopping 20 miles short of calling this list a “best of” list. As the stacks upon stacks of cds in my computer room would show, there’s so much music from 2011 I didn’t hear that it’s impossible for me to gloss this list anything other than a collection of some my favorite albums from […]

ROMEO SID VICIOUS' TOP TEN ALBUMS OF 2011

ROMEO SID VICIOUS' TOP TEN ALBUMS OF 2011

First I want to say that this was one of the hardest top lists I have ever done. Some of these don’t deserve to be ranked any lower than the ones above them. While I didn’t write as prolifically this year as I did others what I wrote about I really and truly loved. And […]

CHARLES HALE'S 10 RECORDS THAT MADE 2011 TOLERABLE, ETC.

11. William Elliot Whitmore-Field Songs:  Songs about working and struggling and grasping to the only piece of fucking dirt that yours and some SOB trying to cheat you out of it.  Thanks WEW.  I’m taking bullshit handyman work over the winter just so I can afford to eat Burger King and drink a couple of […]

SEAN'S LUCKY 13 OF 2011

SEAN'S LUCKY 13 OF 2011

Why 13, you ask? Well, it’s my favorite number and, conveniently, it is also the number of albums that grabbed my attention this year. Plus, I like the title of “Lucky 13” for my list. 13. Ryan Adams – Ashes & Fire. This is the album I’ve turned to all year whenever I’ve been in […]
