Glad to see I wasn't the only one who thought Fewer Moving Parts was the best ep of the year.

The only place you lost me was with giving Punchline worst album of the year. I mean come on... Punchline?!?!?! Not to mention Cute Is What We Aim For not even making that list.

I am going to have to say that these guys (aside from Sherwood) are the hardest working band out there. They promote their asses off and put on one hell of a live show. IMO this album was the next logical step for them and fits in nicely with their body of work.

I think Punchline's music is absolutely terrible...and that has nothing to do with how hard they work or how nice of guys they are.

I love the top 5.

Good list Scott, although, I was surprised how high Dead Poetic is on that list. Maybe I do need to pick that CD up.
