We're sitting around, mulling over which albums should be in our top 5. It's really tough, considering this blog has covered twice as many albums this year as last, and hopefully will cover two times more next. A select few haven't come through (Arcade Fire, for one), so keep in mind the scope of this tiny, teensy-weensy little blog. If you're really aching to know what our selections will be, we'll give you a little hint: The National doesn't make the list. Sorry to lovers of "High Violet," it's too monochromatic for our tastes.
Hopefully decisions will be made, and there's time for revisions which a minute needn't reverse. Thanks for keeping up, and if all goes according to plan, we'll get started today until X-Mas Eve (just to help with your last-minute shopping). Peace and holidays,
