Just a reminder to all bands and industry folk - we're getting closer to launching our EOTY feature and we're still continuing to build up our "end of the year" database, as we've done each year, and we want your lists! If you're in a band, work for a label, or are involved in the industry - we want to feature your favorite albums of the year in our end of the year brouhaha.

We'll compile everything together, and post it all around the new year.
