Yeah, huh, I found it really disappointing. I liked the first two tracks, and I expected the rest to be more of that balls out, shit kickin' noisy rock. But a lot of it just bored me. Too bad.

Anyways.

This year has been ridiculous. I feel like I've been hearing too much music. It's worth it, though.

1. King Khan & The Shrines - What Is?!
2. Earth - Hibernaculum
3. Spoon - Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
4. Warhammer 48k - An Ethereal Oracle
5. Earthless - Rhythms From A Cosmic Sky
6. Shellac - Excellent Italian Greyhound
7. Times New Viking - Present The Paisley Reich
8. Raccoo-oo-oon - Behold Secret Kingdom
9. Pink Reason - Cleaning The Mirror
10. Bill Callahan - Woke On a Whaleheart

Pig Destroyer - Phantom Limb
Trans Am - Sex Change
The Black Lips - Los Valientes del Mundo Nuevo
Sapat - Mortise & Tenon
Mammatus - The Coast Explodes
Orthodox - Gran Poder
Shining - Grindstone
Boredoms - Super Roots 9 (so are we just going to vote for this in the albums poll or the reissues/misc poll? The concert is from 2004, after all. Eh...)
Melt-Banana - Dilemma
Neurosis - Given To The Rising
Weasel Walter Quartet - Revolt Music
RTX - Western Xterminator
Wolf Eyes - Black Wings Over Black Sand
Silver Daggers - New High & Ord
Year of No Light - Nord
Dinosaur Jr. - Beyond
Von Sόdenfed - Tromatic Reflexxions

Damo Suzuki: So, um, yeah. Getting older isn't as bad as it sounds. Better than being young & poor (DjDrake) or young & slutty (SG) or young, poor and slutty (Paves); am I right?

Alright, my friends. It's time for another solid little rock jam

See my sig.
Every Sunday morning I wake up
I see you by your dresser doing your make-up
Fluttering a Chinese fan in a Knoxville fashion
All last night you tossed and turned
Your body was hotter than the night Richmond burned
You say you had a bad nightmare about tractor trailers crashing

Rush - Snakes and Arrows 7. !!! - Myth Takes 8 . LCD Soundsystem - Sounds of Silver 9. Porcupine Tree - Fear of a Blank Planet 10. Bloc Party - Weekend in the City 11. Modest Mouse - We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank 12. Arcade Fire - Neon Bible 13. Fountains of Wayne - Traffic and Weather At this point anyways.

1. Pantha du Prince - This Bliss
2. King Khan and the Shrines - What Is?!
3. Lucky Soul - The Great Unwanted
4. Gabriel Ananda - Bambusbeats
5. Kalabrese - Rumpelzirkus

Spoon would/will probably take the 5th spot when it's released. Shut Up and Dance would be 3 or 4 if it was eligible.

I'm happy to see someone else digging this! Totally surprised me that they sounded this renewed and fresh 13 years after their debut and after 2 somewhat lackluster albums.

If the whole National album sounded like "Racing Like A Pro" it would be up there too.
