Just a reminder to all bands and industry folk - it's the beginning of December and we're 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've made it super simple again this year: just email us your lists here and make sure you make it clear who the list is for (ie: if you're in a band - is it a band list, or is it an individual band member list?). We'll compile everything together, and post it all around the new year.
Please note: This feature is for industry related...
