“These year end list requests are often a maddening exercise in alienation and people trying to ‘outcool’ each other.  Narrowing a year down to less than one record a month is impossible. There is an upside, though.  Reading other people’s lists reminds me how much great art is out there.  My list is, in no way, comprensive.  It is just a handful of records (5 local and 5 not) I really really liked this year…”
