Just can't agree that Folie A Deux is the best of the year, while Death Cab only gets an honorable mention. And it's on the list for best artwork? Wtf? I'd say disappointing in both categories.

Oh at least have them as an openly guilty pleasure.

Good list. I'm glad Houston Calls made it on there, and I'm really glad to see October Nites on your top unsigned bands. They deserve it.

My taste probably aligns with yours Joe. Don't think YMA6 deserves to be on the list but it was a good album. So happy to see The Years Gone By as I love the album.
